Marshyangdi River, one of the most challenging rivers for thrilling white water rafting, is also known as the Raging River. Opened for rafting in 1996, this river provides splendid views of the Himalayas, landscape, culture, vegetation, technical thundering rapids and the colorful valley of Marshyangdi. The trip starts from Besi sahar and ends at Bimalnagar.
Day 1: Drive from Kathmandu to Besi sahar. Then we hike to Khudi in time to set up camp, relax and find the best spot to view the surrounding Himalayas at sunset.
Day 2: After breakfast, we trek for a couple of hours to our put-in point Ngadi. We end our rafting trip at Khudi and dinner and overnight.
Day 3: Today you will continuous bump into the challenging rapids. The crystal blue water thunders down steep as waterfall for mile after mile, with lush jungle clinging insecurely to the canyon walls and surreal mountains suspended high above the forested ridges.
Day 4: 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 5: The River becomes very mellow and goes through a high walled gorge with birds and vegetation that can only be described as breath taking. We reach out-point at Bimal Nagar where we will have lunch, then drive towards onward destination.
