Best Time for Rafting in Nepal

Rafting in Nepal is often done throughout the year. Yet, Nepal’s best time to raft is from September to early December and March to June. This time is when the weather is best and, thus, the heart is warmest. Autumn is here from September to early December. The weather is neither too hot nor too cold, making the trip to Nepal rafting very welcoming.

Similarly, from March to June, Nepal experiences summery climatic conditions. The snow melts down rapidly, and the river flow is swifter. The swift-flowing rivers are the simplest for rafting in Nepal. The primary season for Nepal rafting is spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November).

This season has the best weather in Nepal, neither hot nor cold, and there’s usually minimal or no rain. Water levels are often relatively low during the Springtime. It is the best for beginners, rafters, and kayakers. Rafting in Trishuli and the Bhote Kosi, the flow of water is often a touch low.

It means it’s common to get stuck on the rocks! It is usually a minor problem but is often inconvenient and hampers the fun. During the autumn, water levels in the rivers are highest, so there will be some exciting rapids.

It is sometimes too exciting, from September to late November, earlier in the season. In December, the nights are becoming quite cold for camping on beaches. But in other respects, this is often the most straightforward time to travel.

Who can do Rafting?

Rafting is a thrilling, exciting, and wild adventure sport. But there’s an inherent risk involved. That risk contributes to the thrill and is one of the explanations why people enjoy it so much. Our guides have training to attenuate threats; you’re safer on a raft than in your car.

The foremost common injury is sunburn. Most other injuries occur ashore, especially stepping into and out of boats. Many non-swimmers continue rafting trips, and they have an excellent time. However, you must be safe from the water. Non-swimmers shouldn’t continue class IV+ or class V trips.

They will be comfortable in the water with a buoyancy vest for sophistication III or IV. We also have our one-person single rescue Kayak. This safety kayak always fronts folks if somebody subsides from the water. This kayak man (Kayaker) immediately rescues the fallen people.

This rescue Kayaker is always waiting at the ends of a dangerous place like Rapids. On many Nepal rafting trips, we use paddle boats. It suggests that you will have a paddle and can be paddling. You ought to be reasonably healthy and ready to fit into the buoyancy vests given by the outfitter.

Paddling is often tiring, but guides will instruct you on paddling techniques. Our boats, where you ride along as a passenger, are also available on many rivers for beginners. You can start with a class III or a more leisurely class IV trip.

Suppose you feel confident in the water first and feel adventurous. You can drop right into a class IV river without prior experience. Guides will give you basic training in safety and paddle techniques.

River difficulty rating is on a scale of sophistication from 1 – 6

Here in Nepal, experts rate the rivers on a scale of 1 to six per the problem level. Here, we’ve mentioned the type of difficulty per their scale.

Class 1: With little or no barriers, the channel features a slow flow during this class.

Rivers of classes 2 and 3: They usually move with some barriers. Their speeds range from small to medium scale because the class moves to 3.

Class 4: Rivers have long, continuous foam sections and enormous waves. They require intense paddling and good boat teamwork during this quiet section.

Class 5: Rivers have intense, long rapids and giant holes. Having good paddling skills and some Nepal rafting experience would be best beforehand.

Class 6: This class is on the brink of the impossible for Rafting. However, some highly qualified people tend to raft during this section.

People from various corners misunderstand that Nepal is typically all about Mt. Everest and Himalayan trekking. But have you ever stopped for a flash and talked about the rafting tours of Nepal? Yes, Rafting in Nepal is underrated. Yet, Rafting has excellent potential to attract tourists. It is thanks to the naturally swift-flowing rivers throughout the country.

River System of Nepal

Experts divide the rivers of Nepal into three categories based on the idea of their origin:

(1) Antecedent to Himalaya

(2) After the Mahabharat

(3) After the Churia range

Antecedent rivers belong to the amount before the increase of the Himalayas. These rivers add tributaries during or after the Himalayan origin and the monsoon climate event.

The major river systems, the Koshi, the Karnali, and the Gandaki, belong to the antecedent group. The second group of Rivers originates from the Mahabharat range. These include Kankai, Bagmati, Kamala, etc. The rivers from the southern face of the Churia hills are in the third group. The subsequent rivers are used for economic Nepal rafting.

1. Saptakoshi River System (East Nepal)

2. Narayani or Saptagandaki River System (Central Nepal)

3. Karnali River System (West Nepal)

The eastern part of the river is the Sapt Kosi, which suggests seven Kosi rivers (Tamur, Likhu Khola, Dudh, Sun, Indrawati, Tama, and Arun). The principal tributary is the Arun, which rises about 150 kilometers inside the Tibetan Plateau.

The Narayani River has a significant branch (Daraudi, Seti, Madi, Kali, Marsyandi, Budhi, and Trisuli). The Kali flows between the Dhaulagiri Himal and the Annapurna Himal. Annapurna is the Nepali variation of the Sanskrit word Himalaya. The Kali is the main river of this system.

The river system draining the western part of Nepal is the Karnali. Its three immediate tributaries are the Bheri, Seti, and Karnali rivers. The latter is the main one. The Maha Kali, also called the Kali, flows along the Nepal-India approach side. So, the Rapti River is also considered a tributary of the Karnali.

Sunkoshi River Rafting

Nepal’s Sun Koshi rafting is rated one of the ten hottest bay journeys in the country. Sun Koshi is also considered the Gold River in Nepal. The Sun Koshi River comes from China’s Tibet Autonomous Region. It is best for intermediate kayaking and Nepal Rafting.

Nepal Rafting Guidelines

Usually, the primary day of a river trip begins early, around 7 a.m. We will drive you to the put-in point of the river. Depending upon the space between Kathmandu and, thus, the put-in moment, the river can take from a few hours. It is often a situation if you select between the Trishuli and, so, the Sunkoshi.

A river trip on the other river requires an extended drive or a flight plus drive and even a trek in some cases. We drive from Kathmandu or Pokhara to the Nepal Rafting starting point. On arrival, the spot rafting will start around 11 a.m. After arrival at the put-in point, a security talk occurs along inflating rubber rafts. The river crews organize other river equipment.

The talk includes delivering skills about measures to take in an emergency. The participant should hear the river guide very carefully. You can raise questions to make things more transparent. You must wear a life vest while on the river. Whether hitting a serious rapid or running a flatwater section, you must wear a life vest.

We recommend a protective helmet if you’re running a high-class rapid. We can put you in the boat to start the adventure. Kayaking is a choice. Usually, the Kayakers bring their own Kayaks. Suppose your option is the paddle boat. Then, we instruct you to properly use the paddle during the security talk or before sailing off.

If you’re participating, then your choice would be paddling. Paddling is more brutal and thrilling. The paddleboat requires a well-coordinated team effort. It is a coordination between the paddlers and the river guide.

Rafting during the autumn (mid-September through November) and spring (March – June)

For each day’s Trip: T-shirts, shorts or light cotton trousers, tennis shoes/sneakers, swimsuit, sun hat, sun goggles with string suntan lotion. Complete change of garments, including shoes, for the return to Kathmandu.

For each day’s Trip: Warm shirts/shirts or T-shirts, windproof jackets and trousers, tennis shoes/sneakers. Complete change of garments, including shoes, for the return to Kathmandu.

We tell you to hold warm shirts for a visit involving two days or more. It would be best to have T-shirts, heavy woolen sweaters (warm clothes), an extra pair of dry shoes and trousers besides the above items.
