Because of its proximity to the towering Himalayan range, Nepal benefits from having swift rivers and icy streams running through the country. The geological landscapes in Nepal are largely responsible for the presence of white water rapids and other exciting challenges that might be encountered while kayaking. Rafting in Nepal is a dream come true due to the close proximity of a wide variety of rapids, making it an ideal destination for family vacations.
Rafting trips may be had on many of Nepal's world-class rivers, which provide for an enjoyable and action-packed vacation destination. You have the option of going rafting for a day or going on a longer trip that allows you to camp on the river and take in the local culture as well as the natural beauty of the area. Rafting in Nepal is one of the most well-known forms of outdoor recreation, and the country is often regarded as a river runner's dream. There are many different levels of whitewater rafting adventures, and the difficulty can change according to your interests and preferences. Those individuals who are interested in participating in a run that is more along the lines of an adventure may be interested in a trip that combines rafting on the Sun Koshi and Karnali rivers with a wildlife safari excursion in nearby national parks.
Rafting in Nepal is a tough and perilous occupation in addition to being an exciting and adventurous pastime. The Nepal Association of Rafting Agencies (NARA) has assigned a rating to the river based on the difficulty it presents, awarding a substantial point for each category (1 – 5- ). The grade ranges from 2+ all the way up to 5 due to the steepness of the rivers in Nepal. Seti is the most classic river to raft in Nepal and has a grade of 2+, whereas the Bhotekoshi has a rating of 5, making it one of the most difficult rivers to navigate anywhere in the world. In terms of difficulty, rafting can be considered moderate between the levels of 2+ and 3, and even children can participate. However, between 4+ and 5, only experienced rafters and people looking for extreme experiences are permitted to participate at their own personal risk.
The months of March through May and September through November are Nepal's busiest tourist seasons (September-November). During these periods, the weather is at its best, with nice high temperatures and very little chance of precipitation. When it comes to white-water rafting, the amount of water present is obviously a significant aspect. The water levels may be fairly low during the spring, as this is the period of year when it has been the longest since the heaviest rains of the monsoon season. However, monsoon brings with it too much rain rendering many of the rapids simply unsafe. Autumn and Spring therefore can be considered the best seasons for rafting in Nepal.
