Highlights

Rising on the northern slope of Annapurna hill, Marshyangdi River provides an exhilarating whitewater rafting tour.

Are you seeking for some intense and extreme white water rafting in Nepal? If your answer to our question is yes, then this is absolutely the most ideal rafting tour for you. Being one of the best class 4 kayaking River in the World, Marshyangdi River sets as a challenging river for those people who have an experience of previous rafting and are well known about the rapids. Showing its fast and furious water rages, this river is also known as “Raging River” due to its massive and speedy flow of water. The river rages through narrow gorges and canyons and past stunning Annapurna Mountains. Starting this journey, we drive for about 125 kilometers to reach Khudi which takes about eight hours from Kathmandu. Upon arrival at Khudi, you will hike for around one hour in order to reach Bhulbhule. On the next day, we hike up to Ngadi, the starting point of our raft from where we raft to Khudi, Dam, Paundi, Turtle village, finally ending our trip to Bimalnagar. Some of the river above Ngadi has been kayaked – The 1980 British Expedition started from Tilicho Lake at 4920m – but much of the upper river should probably be considered as un-runnable.During the trip, you can see most exciting rapids in the world with views of some of the most beautiful mountains in the Himalaya. This trip offers intense, challenging and continuous crystal clear whitewater rapids.

Trip Itinerary

Setting off for the tour, we leave behind Kathmandu and drive towards Khudi. It takes around eight hours drive to reach Khudi from Kathmandu. Khudi is a small village that is situated in Lamjung District. The first hours of the ride takes us off the “good” tarmac roads and tends to be a little bouncy in places. After arriving at Khudi, we will commence a short trek up to Bhulbhule today where we will camp for overnight. Before dinner, our guide will brief you and provide some tips and training on land about safety and paddling. As rafting in this river is one of the most challenging stuff, thus pay attention to every details and statement stated by our guide.
