Karnali River, Nepal's mightiest river is arguably the finest multi-day river trip in Nepal, and the classic Himalayan River expedition. The Karnali's headwaters come off Mount Kailas in Tibet and slice through the Himalayas in a series of magnificent gorges and pristine forest. On our 180 kilometers River journey we won't see a single sign of the modern world but natural beauty and cultures. It is one of the last places in Nepal that you can see old grown forest and have a real chance of seeing Nepal's wildlife like Monkeys, Langur, Rhesus, leopards, bear, martins, deer, crocodiles and garials; even tigers. The river also supports some of the finest fish habitat in Nepal, with giant catfish and Golden Masher prowling the depths. Midway through the trip we select a choice piece of beach and for two nights we stay at the same camp and people have an opportunity to explore this beautiful country, wallow in a mud bank, play in the region's plentiful waterfalls, or just hang out and learn something about their fellow rafters. Whitewater ranges from easygoing class three, to bone crushing class five, depending on the time of year. Regardless of the month, the Karnali always offers good, hard rapids with miles of beautiful scenery and deep river gorges.
