Wild wild West Nepal (5+ rapids)

Nepal’s longest and largest river, ‘Karnali’ springs forth from the base of Mount Kailash in Tibet, the center of the universe for both the Buddhist and Hindu religions. Flowing south into Nepal it forms the major drainage system of the western districts. Karnali is one of the finest big volume river trips in the world, a classic expedition into Nepal’s remote, unpopulated “wild west” also known by rafter as Wild wild West Nepal (5+ rapids).

Adventure in Wild wild West Nepal (5+ rapids), at the starting point Sauli, the river drops into imposing canyons filled with powerful, big volume white water. These canyons flow into scarcely populated areas of a pristine jungle teeming with abundant birds and wildlife. Rapids like “Captivity”, “Flip and Strip” and “Gods House” are separated by just enough easier water to regroup and prepare for the next big challenge. Towards the end of the trips, the river gradient begins to ease as the Karnali leaves the mountains and flows out into the Gangetic plains of the Terai. The jungle thickens as the river broadens, and the pristine beaches become bigger and more beautiful.

Bhote Khosi River Rafting is the best alternative to wild west Karnali Rafting because of its easy access and rapids.

After decent rest, we wake for some good breakfast. After some preparation, we continue another day of thrilling adventure until we reach another camping point for the night.

We wake up by the dawn, enjoy the sunrise from riverbank. There is no rush to jump into the raft and we enjoy some decent meal leisurely. If past couple of days taught you anything, that is, every incoming moment in that river is new and fresh and we get to enjoy that till we reach another camping point. After a decent stretch, we camp by the confluence of Seti River and all it a day!

Another day, another dawn! One thing you will realize by now is, the past couple of days only added to your excitement and anticipation for the next big rush and how come do you not get tired of this repetition? The answer is simple, each bend, each riffle and each rapids are unique and a new moment is born, not replicated as you raft by them. It's all about newness, a novelty! We camp on the nearby beach after passing Bijura Village.

This will be the last day of this trip and we will raft to chisapani and bid adeiu to the river. This remarkable and exhilarating experience will be something to treasure in your memories. After packing everything, we drive back to Kathmandu, check in hotel and get much needed rest.
