Karnali River Rafting


The Karnali river is Nepal's largest river. Rafting in this river in the far-west of Nepal gives you an opportunity to explore remote villages and culture, magnificent views of the Himalayas and the unspoilt forests of Nepal. The trip starts in Sauli and ends at Chisapani. This trip gives you an opportunity to go to Royal Bardia National Park for wildlife safari since Chisapani is near to the park.
