Marshyangdi River Rafting

The raging river “Marshyandi” drains the northern slope of the Annapurna Himalaya range. The IV- V rafting grade Marshyandi was opened in 1996 and yields some of the most exciting white water rafting / kayaking in Nepal. This river demands 100% commitment from both crew and guide. It is totally different from the big volume rivers like the Sun Koshi and Karnali, as the rapids are technical and require a very different approach. Big Volume Rivers need power and a good line, the Marsyangdi needs fast reactions from the crew to get through this pin ball machine river. The Marsyangdi quickly forges raft crews of complete strangers into true teams.

Marsyangdi River is located on the eastern side of the Annapurna circuit; it has long been famous for the beautiful views with each twist and turn, and the steep sided gorge walls frame a new mountain backdrop. The take-out point of Marsyandi river trip begins from at Nagdi to either Kathmandu (5 hours) or Pokhara (2.5 hours) by bus drive, and end in Bimalnagar. There is an orientation meeting early in the evening before the trip, providing you with an opportunity to ask any questions you may have, to meet your fellow rafters and also your guide and team. The 47 km Marsyangdi River Rafting action takes 2 days. This river is a photographer’s dream, with sculptured boulders, some spectacular white water, green valley sides, and a magnificent backdrop of the world’s highest mountains. This trip is worth mentioning that although the valley has a rough road up it, and is quite densely populated, you don’t see this when you are padding because the river is incised about 100ft into the valley floor.

Marshyangdi River is an ideal choice for those who want an intense and extreme rafting trip in Nepal, and is better suited to those who have had previous rafting experience. We “Nepal Mother House Treks” organize this rafting / kayaking trip considering our client safety.

Trip Itinerary

Day 01:After breakfast, we leave by private bus to Besisahaar. The last four hours of this ride takes us off the "good" tarmac roads and tends to be a little bouncy in places (I hope this is a subtle enough hint). We have scheduled a rest day into the program to allow for any unlikely but potential delays. That night we stay at a teahouse.

Day 02:We start trekking for a couple of hours to Khudi where we make camp and sleep for the night. We will leave one of our staff to look after the campsite, and then we will continue to trek for one hour more to Bulbule. Your expedition leader and guides will brief you and train you on land about safety and paddling. Pay attention, as you are straight into the rapids and this river has a way of underlining any Mistakes! Stay overnight Khudi.

Day 03:After breakfast, hike up to Nagdi with all the gears to the river put in point. This is the most knuckle gripping section of the river so enjoy it as you will encounter continuous Class 4 rapids. We finish today at Besisahar and have a well earned dinner, and no doubt a rum punch to help it down.

Day 04:This is the day to relax, go walking and learn to roll in a kayak and have a day in this beautiful area, away from the crowds of trekkers. The only reason this day is lost is if there are any problems on day one as explained.

Day 05: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 our take out point at Bimal Nagar by lunch time where our transport is waiting to take us back to Kathmandu/Pokhara.

Karna, thank you so much for another wonderful trek. This is my 3rd trek with you - the first being the Annapurna Circuit and then a tour of the Everest region, starting at Jiri and then trekking up to Gokyo, going over Cho La, up to Kala Pattar and then up the Chukhung valley. I continue to learn so much about Nepal from you, Continue
