The Trishuli River Rafting is Nepal’s most popular rafting river. It has impressive gorges, moderate white water, a few exciting rapids, some easier sections, all easily accessible from Kathmandu and Pokhara. Popular also with kayakers as an easy access ‘play river’ and as a warm up for big water. Not however, that the proximity of the main highway and the popularity of the river may detract from the experience.Legend says that high in the Himalaya at Gosainkund  the god Shiva drove hios trident into the ground to create three springs – the source of the river and hence its name Trishuli.Not far after this source the Trishuli joins the Bhote koshi that flows from Tibet; the two rivers joining in some pretty fearsome looking gorges that are visible on the way up to the Langtang trek. By Betrawati the gradient has eased and after this it becomes a more mature and powerful river which later adds many other major rivers to its flow – the BuriGandaki, the Marshyangdi, and the Seti. When the Kali GandakiJoins it, shortly before the plains, it changes its name to the narayani. Here, it is a truly mightly river – peak flows in the Monsoon have been measured at 25,700 cumes (extreme, instantaneous discharge);  about 900,000 cfs or fifty times the typical flow of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon!

Monsoon is considered as the best season if you want to take rafting in its more challenging attire. The powerful whirlpools when the river runs high and wild. The rapids in the Trishuli river are even given a name like Snail’s nose, Teendevi, Malekhu rapid, Monkey rapid, Upset, Surprise, Monsoon, Cotton Pony, Ladies Delight, S-Bend, Highway, Monsoon and Pinball Rapid. The name of the rapids gives us an idea about how the rapids will be like.
