Rafting in Trishuli River is believed to be the best rafting that provides beautiful sceneries, adventurous ride on water and you can enjoy fresh fishes too. Trishuli River, from rafting point of view, is supposed to be the most thrilling river for rafting in Nepal. 

Before you go for a rafting it is good to collect some information about it. 

The river has been named after ‘Trishula’ or trident of the Hindu deity Lord Shiva. Legends have it that Lord Shiva drove his trident into the grounds of Gosaikunda, and this gave rise to three springs-the source of the river. There is no dearth of thrills and adventure when rafting in the river, and what more there are deep gorges and rapids which will certainly augment your joy.

The first stop of the trip is Charaundi, a 3-hour journey from Kathmandu, situated at a distance of 85 kms. From Charaundi, the group heads to the bank of the Trisuli river, where travelers are supplied with life jackets, helmets and other safety equipment. What follows next, is a brief safety lesson on the necessary precautions and what to do if you topple over the raft or find yourself in a difficult situation. It is important that rafters no matter how experienced they are, pay complete attention to what the trip leader says.

After a short session covering the basics of rafting and must-follow safety measures, its time to finally indulge in the sport.

To enable all expedition members to acclimatize well and hence maximize their chances of success, our expedition programs are prepared with sufficient time for acclimatization. Adaptation to the altitude takes time and there can be no short-cuts, even if supplementary oxygen is used in the final stages. The atmospheric pressure at the base camp is half of that at the sea level. A thorough program of acclimatization is built into the itinerary which consists of regulated height ascents, followed by descents and rests before the final ascent to the summit. This will prevent the climbers to get rid from altitude sickness.
