Marshyangdi River Rafting Detailed Itinerary
Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu and transfer to Hotel:
In accordance with your flight schedule, we will be at the Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu to extend a warm welcome to you in our beautiful country for the beautiful trip. After exchanging warm welcome greetings at the arrival section, we will lead you to our vehicle to transfer you to our trip hotel. It’s a day at complete leisure on your own to relax the jet lag. But we will help you with the information to go around in case you’d like to do so.
Day 2: Drive 8 hours to Besisahar from Kathmandu and then to Khudi to set up Camp:
After reaching Besisahar we unload the gear and one of our staff will show up with a porter who will carry all the expedition gear to our camp at Khudi. We arrive at Khudi in time to set up camp, relax and find the best spot to take in the magnificence of the surrounding Himalayas at sunset
Day 3: Trek start from Khudi to Ngadi then back to Ngadi by raft for your night camp:
After breakfast, we start trekking for a couple of hours to our put in point Ngadi. Lunch will be served, rafts are pumped, gear handed out after and your expedition leader will brief you and train you on the land about safety and paddling. Pay attention as you are straight into the rapids and this river has a way of underlining any mistakes! This is the most knuckle gripping section of the river so enjoy it. We encounter rapids as Instant Karma, Twinkie, Adrenaline, and Mama's Big Butt by Bhulbhule. We finish today back at Khudi and have a well-earned dinner.
Day 4: Start adventure-rafting trip from Khudi and raft up to the sandy beach below Besisahar:
From today you have to be prepared to continuous bumping into the challenging rapids and it doesn't stop after the 1st day. The crystal blue water thunders down steep as a waterfall for mile after mile, with lush jungle clinging insecurely to the canyon walls and surreal mountains suspended high above the forested ridges. You have to run on these rapids and tackle the intense whitewater rafting for the next 5 hours. Lunch will be provided on the way and then continue the descent to the camping site on the sandy beach. The white sandy beaches below Bensisahar make for the most comfortable nightspot around
Day 5: As done before and camp in Bhotewodar:
After breakfast, we hit directly into whitewater again. At Phaliya Sanghu the whole river is squeezed between vertical walls, which rise 200 ft to a suspension bridge across the river. For a short section after Phaliya Sanghu, the river relaxes, the rapids are more open and nowhere as powerful. We end the day at Bhotewodar, where we camp on the banks in the cave of a Shiva temple.
Day 6: Last day of Rafting:
The river becomes very mellow and goes through a high walled gorge with birds and vegetation that can only be described as breathtaking. We reach our take-out point at Bimal Nagar by lunchtime where our transport is waiting to take us back to Pokhara or Chitwan or Kathmandu
