The fact that you want to raft down Nepal’s chall-enging rivers means that you have long ago graduated from the nursery school of “Row, row, row your boat”. The many ‘raftable’ rivers in Nepal meander between canyons, villages, and virgin forests, wildlife, like needle through thread, weaving the country’s rich tapestry of ethno-culture and bio-diversity. Originating in the bowels of the Himalayas, these rivers flow across the length and breadth of Nepal and neighboring India, before emptying mostly into the Bay of Bengal.
Season: October through mid-December and March through early May are the best times. It is possible in winter too, but you have to watch out for hypothermia. During monsoon (June through September), the white water sections are challenging.
