Bheri river

28, Nov 2019 |

Bring out your fishing rods and yoga mats. Yes, yoga mats! Enjoy yoga by the river whilst you bask in the warm sun in far western Nepal.

The Bheri river is a major tributary of the Karnali river draining the western Dhaulagiri range in the midwest of Nepal. The Bheri flows through the Surkhet valley before joining Karnali river in the Mahabharat range or lower Himalaya. Rafting in Bheri started in 2007 AD, and is graded as a moderate river by the NARA.

The ideal length of the trip to Bheri would be 6-7 days. A great deal of fishing can be done along with exploring the nearby lanscapes. This trip will require travelling to Nepalgunj, far western region in Nepal. The flight to Nepalgunj from Kathmandu takes only about an hour and 15 minutes. The put in point is Devasthal which is a half an hour drive from Nepalgunj airport. And the put out point is Chisapani, a 4 hour drive to Nepalgunj. The river action is about 142 km.

Bheri is situated in the Terai region of Nepal which means that it has flat terrain. Although rafting is practiced, it is somewhat rare. Which makes it a perfect spot for some yoga by the river. A lot of packages offer yoga along with rafting, fishing and camping. Bheri makes the perfect gateway for those interested in having a laid back trip while soaking up the sun by the river.
