White water Rafting Marshyangdi River

Trip Overview

'Raging River', in the local dialect, aptly describes one of the best whitewater runs in the world. Only recently opened for commercial rafting (many rapids have not yet been named), the Marshyangdi is one of the next generation of rivers in Nepal, which is steeper and with a much more continuous stretch of rapids. While driving to the raft put-in point, you will get to see great views of the Manaslu and the Annapurna. The scenery is breathtaking!

White water Rafting Marshyangdi River

From Ngadi, downstream, to the end of the trip at Bimalnagar, it is solid whitewater. Rapids are steep, technical, and consecutive, making the Marshyangdi a serious undertaking. For people looking for a trip with a lot of demanding whitewater and great mountain scenery, the Marshyangdi is hard to beat. This is the river that demands respect.

Cost includes: All meals, transportation to the put-in point and back from the take-out point, all rafting equipments and accommodation on a twin sharing basis.

Cost does not include: Sleeping bags/ mattresses, alcoholic beverages, personal expenses and insurance. Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) fee.

Client Reviews

My husband and I went on a trek in Nepal this past August, and we had a fabulous time. It was truly the most unique, beautiful outdoor travel experience that either of us have ever had. For anyone considering trekking in the Himalayas, we highly recommend Raj Tamang as a guide. His company, Responsible Adventures (www.responsibleadventures.com) and (www.notjusttreks.com), is professional and customer-service oriented. We were amazed at the ways that Raj and his employees went above and beyond to make this experience memorable for us. Raj is a 'walking encyclopedia' of information about the culture and history of Nepal, and his confident, welcoming nature put us at ease. He was experienced at facilitating positive, genuine interaction between Himalayan villagers and Western trekkers such as ourselves, and that made all the difference in our 10 days touring the Manang valley. His company offers a service that is truly a cut above the rest.

We can't wait for another opportunity to trek with Raj! Feel free to check out our story and pics at www.joshandelise2008.blogspot.com
