Karnali River Rafting
Karnali River is Nepal’s longest and largest river, the Karnali, springs forth from the base of Mt. Kailash in Tibet, the centre of the universe for both the Buddhist and Hindu religions. Flowing south into Nepal it forms the major drainage system of the western districts.
Karnali one of the finest big volume river trips in the world, a classic expedition into Nepal’s remote, unpopulated “wild west”. From the starting point at Sauli, the river drops into imposing canyons filled with powerful, big volume white water. These canyons flow into scarcely populated areas of pristine jungle teeming with abundant bird and wildlife. Rapids like “Captivity” , “Flip and Strip” and “Gods House” are separated by just enough easier water to regroup and prepare for the next big challenge. Towards the end of the trip the river gradient begins to ease as the Karnali leaves the mountains and flows out into the Gangetic plains of the Terai. The jungle thickens as the river broadens, and the pristine Beaches become bigger and more beautiful.
