    Nick named as the ‘Raging River’, it starts to the north of the Annapurna range initially travelling southeast and then south below Chame. Under the shadow of the mighty Manaslu the river put-in, close to Ngadi, is an amazing place with incredible views on this, the early section of the 21-day Annapurna circuit trek.

    Transportation to the river
    Based out of Pokhara the initial bus journey is to Dumre 2-3 hours away. From Kathmandu, it takes 4 hours. Then begins the bus journey from hell up the side of the river to Besishahar. Expect to arrive there at the end of the first day battered, beaten up and bruised – If you’re looking for adrenaline, ride rooftop and you’ll get it! There is an overnight stay here. From Besishahar it is a pleasant trek starting next morning to Ngadi. You would expect to arrive at the put-in mid to late afternoon, having had chance to see many of the rapids on the walk-in.

    On the river
    The river journey starts just above Ngadi, some rapids having to be lined and walked around near the start. Some days, you will encounter more than 40 rapids, often blending one into the next. You will have combination of camping and lodges for accommodation on your trip, which lasts three days on the river and concluded just below Dumre.
