 Our Karnali River rafting trip begins with (and includes) a chartered plane journey across Nepal into western Nepal from where we trek for two days alongside old trading  routes in Karnali to the put-in point at the “Great Loop” of the Karnali. On the other eight days we raft through steep canyon, pristine forest, and beautiful scenery of mountains somewhere narrowing jungle clad gorge and many more. There you also encounter some of the notorious rapids named GOD'S house rapid. Karnali river rafting can be one of the finest white water rafting in the world and also one of the Nepal's leading fishing River in habited with some exclusive fishes like fresh water perch and giant cat fish. We float all the way through sparsely populated area until we reach out take out point in a village near Bardia National Park
