Karnali River Rafting
Karnali River Rafting is one of the best rivers rafting in the world. This magnificent river originates from Mt. kailash in Tibet. Karnali River literally means “Holy water from the sacred mountain”.
Sauli is the rafting put-in-point. The river drops into imposing canyons filled with powerful big volume white-water. There is a wide variety of fauna and flora including dense forests, jungle and also remote villages. Just enough easier water to regroup and prepare for the next big challenge separates rapids like “Captivity”, “Flip and Strip” and “Gods House”. Towards the end of the trip the river gradient begins to ease as the Karnali leaves the mountains and flows out into the Gangetic plains of Terai. Jungle is thickens and the river is broadens than pristine Beaches become bigger and more beautiful.

You pass local villages and spectacular scenery, and then you hit the river.
Day 3 :After having heavy breakfast at 8:00 a.m. we get ready for wild ride. This section of the River is terribly wild. Continues rapid makes rafter forget to breathe. Lunch will be served en-route and camping at 03:00 p.m. in First Inquiry.
Day 4 :This is the type of day that people imagine when they think of Himalayan water. It is big and continuous. We enter into the Jungle Corridor. This is a narrowing jungle clad gorge and it is all ours. The team building is put into full practice and when your guide shouts "all forward " he really means it. Enjoy the ride all day and camp in this sensational setting at God-house.
