Rafting Itinerary

Day 01

We start our journey from Kathmandu by private bus towards the Tibetan border. We make a short tea stop at Dolalghat and continue on two hours putting point for a early lunch. Then the guides will brief you on the safety aspects of the trip and its time to see what you are made of! We jump straight into grade 4 rapids like Gerbil in the plumbing and Frog in the Blender. By afternoon you will be wide eyed and exhilarated. To finish the day off we have Carnal Knowledge of a Deviant Nature, a huge rock slalom with a 2 meter drop into a hole and a pool! where your mates sit laughing. We exit and the bus drives us back up stream to our campsite.

Day 02

Wake up to the sound of the roaring river and a choice of a hot or cold breakfast. Today we thrill and spill our way down numerous drops and eddies. bump around boulders, occasionally getting stuck on them. Then we enter a narrow canyon and on to the Midnight Special, a gun barrel of a rapid which slams you up against a wall. Next we have The Great Wall, Liquid Bliss and the long, hard class 4 plus rapid Jhon Holmes.
