Trishuli River Rafting
Although not the most inspiring river for rafting in Nepal, it is very much popular for several other reasons-it is close to Kathmandu and for a cheap bus ride you can be on the river in hours if a warm-up is what you need on arrival in Nepal. The major road running alongside it is, for most people, a down marker. It does however provide easy access to transport and villages along the way. For a family trip it provides a less serious and committing adventure than many of the other rivers.
From a rafting point of view there are some good rapids but it is best run, in my opinion later in the season. On passing the main rapids in September 1999, many were washed out and only the biggest were evident.
