Rafting in Nepal - Karnali River Rafting

General Information

Karnali, the largest and longest river of Nepal originates on the Tibetan Plateau near Lake Mansarovar. The river basin lies between the mountain ranges of Dhaulagiri in Nepal and Nanda Devi in India. As you raft through the river you get to pass through magnificent gorges, tropical forests, Himalayan aquatic fish such as Golden Masheer and Giant Catfish. The river flows through the least populated regions in the country, thus you get to live completely cut from the modern world for a few days.
