One of Nepal's most popular rivers, the Trisuli has something to offer for everyone from the experienced kayaker to the first time rafter. Its an ideal year round river located between the two tourist hubs of Pokhara and Kathmandu. A trip on the Trisuli will quench the white water desire of travelers with limited time in Nepal.

Rafting and Kayaking the Trisuli River
This is Nepal's main tourism river and the reasons are clear. It is perfect for rafting and any water sports. This river offers fantastic day trips and an easy access point for traveling to all the big tourist destinations. The best things about the Trisuli is that it is kicking all year round, or at least the way we do it. Unlike other rivers of Nepal, this deep and wide river maintains it class 3-4 status in high water and low water. The rapids on this river are not continuous but will usually be the biggest rapids on any short trip at any given time of year. With fantastic rapids combined with scenic slower sections it is a great all around full day rafting trip of about 3-4 hours.

Winter and Spring - Low Water Season
December to May
During the cool dry season we can go for months without any rain creating an drastic environment when our rivers are sometimes meters below their high water marks. The Trisuli during this time still hold some of Nepal's best rapids but with a lot less punch than at high water times. But don't worry winter time trips are some of our best; filled with rafting games, tubing fun, sunny days, warm sun and even a cliff jump if you want. Even at low water this remains one of our favorite rafting and kayaking rivers in Nepal. This is also the number one time to learn whitewater kayaking!
