Let the fast flowing river entertain you with it's twists and turns.

Trishuli river is one of the major tributaries of the Narayani river basin in central Nepal originating in Tibet as stream then enters Nepal in Gyriong village. The main source of the river is the Hindu holy lake: Gosainkunda. It descends along the Tribhuwan highway to the southern part of the country and joins at Devghat, the Narayani basin which at a lower stage then flows to India and joins the Ganges. Rafting in the Trishuli was first practiced by the hippies from Vietnam in the early 60’s. It is a classic and luxurious raft in Nepal.

Trishuli is the most popular rafting destination. A smooth and silent flowing river along with impressive gorges, exciting rapids, with a few effortless sections in between.
