Trishuli River Rafting – 1 Day Brief Insight

Trishuli River Rafting is an adventurous rafting with numerous water rapids in a breathtakingly beautiful environment. For those seeking a quick river rafting excursion, the Trishuli River is a great option. Playing with the water’s waves in a breathtaking setting in Nepal’s serene countryside is the ultimate indulgence.

The source of the Trishuli River is Gosainkunda, a Himalayan lake located northwest of Kathmandu. A legend states that Lord Shiva pierced the rocky mountain with his trident, creating three springs. The river bears the name Trishuli River because it gets its water from these three springs.

The gorgeous hills and the surrounding vegetation will captivate you. In addition, you get to experience the thrill and the adrenaline rush that you have never felt before. Likewise, you can also see the Manakamana Cable cars hanging above you, as you are rafting.

The Trishuli River is situated on the west of Kathmandu. It lies on the route to the renowned and stunning locations of Pokhara and Chitwan National Park. You may also plan this rafting adventure while you are returning or heading towards your Annapurna Circuit trek.

The Trishuli River is graded 2 as small and regular waves are seen. So the river is appropriate even for novices who can paddle. The river grades three during the monsoon, when there are challenging rapids with erratic waves. The water level also rises during this time. So you should be careful if you are rafting during the monsoon season.

The Trishuli River rafting has plenty to offer everyone, from experienced kayakers to novice rafters. This place can be a perfect weekend gateway. You can enjoy your short vacation or holiday with your friends and family.
