TRIP HIGHLIGHTS
  • The most exciting whitewater experience
  • Steep, challenging, and continuous rapids
  • Mountain views

Draining off the Northern slopes of the Annapurna Mountains, this “raging river” is steep, technical and not to be underestimated! This spectacular whitewater adventure shares some of the most exciting rapids in the world with views of some of the most beautiful mountains in the Himalaya. Offering two days of intense, challenging and continuous crystal clear whitewater rapids, it is no surprise that this is one of our most popular trips. This river demands 100% commitment from both crew & guide – it is not for the faint hearted!

If you are looking for the most exciting short whitewater adventure in Nepal and want to escape the crowds – then look no further!
