Location, Transportation and Timetable
The put-in point for Trisuli River Rafting/Kayaking is located just 3 to 3:5 hour drive west of Kathmandu, making it an excellent choice for short trips, or for those who are en route to Pokhara or Chitwan National Park.

The Trisuli can be rafted for 1 to 3 days, 15 – 60 km. Most people do the classic two-day trip. The return journey to Kathmandu is 5 hours, to Pokhara is approximately 4 hours and to Chitwan is approximately 1 hour.We arrange private or tourist bus transportation to the put-in point, usually Charaudi. (This may differ for longer/shorter trips and depends on the season). Transportation from the take-out point of Trisuli river trip is also arranged to whatever destination is next for you.

The scenery of river Trishuli includes small gorges and a glimpse of the cable car leading to the famous Hindu Temple Manakamana. For most of the year the rapids encountered on the Trisuli are straightforward, easily negotiated and well spaced out. Trisuli river is an excellent river for those looking for a short river trip, without the challenge of huge rapids, but with some really exciting rapids, with beautiful scenery and a relatively peaceful environment. During the monsoon months, the intensity of the rapids increases and attracts a radically different set of rafters. But there are sections for rafting during the monsoon for those who are looking for simply exciting trip!
