Most experienced river travellers who have rafted or kayaked down the Karnali – Nepal ‘s mightiest river, will agree the ‘’Wild West” of Nepal ; an area only recently opened to tourism. That it is one of the best trips offered anwhere. Karnali lies in the western part of Nepal.


Rising in the vicinity of Tibet ‘s holy Mount Kailash , the Karnali carves the Himalayan landscape into a series of magnificent gorges and canyons as it descends slowly into the forests of western Nepal . Seasonal snow melts and storms can cause the river levels to swell drastically and create the extremes of white water rafting.


In high water the Karnali is a serious undertaking with fairly straightforward, yet huge rapids. Even at lower levels it is still not a walk in the park, as the rapids become more constricted and the gradient steeper. One highlight of this classic river journey is a 7-km long gorge “Thrill-a-minute roller-coaster ride” with rapids at every bend. Truly though, any season suits the Karnali. Different Treks Nepal funds a school along the banks of the Karnali River . A portion of every Karnali trip is donated to the school. Your expeditions will not only is a great experience, but a meaningful contribution to the future by providing supplies for the school children. If you would like more information about this and other non-profit activities we organize, please do not hesitate to contact us.
