Rafting in Nepal is usually a 'wilderness'
experience in that most rivers don't have highways
alongside them - but it's a soft, tamed, wilderness
with white beaches for camping, clean blue rivers,
friendly locals and few 'nastiest' - someone described
it as 'blissful escapism'! Incredibly inexpensive,

and kayakers get a warm welcome as one of the best
forms of ecotourism. White water rafting means cruising
down a rushing river in an inflatable rubber boat
or white water kayak over crashing waves and swirling
rapids for the excitement of a lifetime. Nepal has
earned a reputation as one of the best destinations
in the world for white water rafting. Nepal's thundering
waters, coming from the glaciers of the mighty Himalaya,
provide unmatched thrills for rafting and immersing
oneself in the landscape. A rafting trip is bound
to be the highlight of your stay in the country.
Rivers are graded on a scale of one

ticket to your maker. Four is considered to be quite
challenging without being exceedingly dangerous to
the novice rafter.
