which rafting trip: Trisuli or to Chitwan?

Hi everyone,

I'm coming to Nepal in 6 weeks and am very excited. Haven't planned much since it seems we can do it there, but I'm trying to get an idea of things to do.

I'm thinking of doing a rafting trip but may be a little tight on time so I'm trying to fit one from Kathmandu to Chitwan National Park instead of doing a 2 day trip on the Trisuli. Is this a good idea? How is the rafting to Chitwan-good or bad? Better on the Trisuli?

Please help.

Welcome to Nepal. Rafting is one of many attractions in nepal. I think you want to do rafting and jungle safari as well but don't ahve much time. So, I thnik it is better to choose itinerary in such a way that can cover both things. 2 nights/3days trishuli raft with chitwan safari or 3nights/4days trishuli camp rafting with chitwan safari seems suitable for you.

You can log on itournepal.com/tours/…trishulirafting

www.raftnepal.com/short_rafting_trip.htm, www.nepal-safari.com/special_package.php

Or you can choose package that covers kathmandu and Pokhara sightseeing along with rafting in trishuli and chitawan safari.

Hope it may be useful to you

Thank you

Hi NY,

There is so many things to do in Nepal including Rafting & Chitwan Safari. Rafting over Trishuli River is exciting experience in lifetime with good rapids, adequete water in the river, Riverside highway, natural atmosphire, countryside experience, flora & fauna. Driving staright to Chitwan you would defineately miss the challenge of Popular River. So doing a day Rafting over Trishuli River and continue the Wildlife safari is the best prescirbed program.

Hope it would be useful to you...

Cheers !

Settle, United...

A two day / one night trip on the Trisuli is well worth it (though if you can spare an extra day it's worth considering a three day / 2 night trip on the kali Gandaki. The Trisuli is good, though the proximity of the road running along the valley slightly impacts on the trip. The Kali Gandaki valley has a far more remote feel to it)
