Rafting Program in Nepal


Nepalese rivers can be grouped into three categories on the basis of their origin:

1. Antecedent to the Himalayas
2. below the Mahabharat
3. Below the Churia range

The major river systems are: the Koshi, the Karnali and the Gandaki which belong to the first group as stated in No. 1. Rivers originating from the Mahabharat Range, and which cut through the Churia hills, come under the second group. These include the Karnali, Bagmati, and the river Kamala. The third group of rivers originates from the southern face of the Churia hills. At Annapurna Travel, we operate our rafting expeditions on the following river routes:
