Drive to Khudi- Bulbule

Leaving Kathmandu in the early morning, it’s a long eight-hour drive to Khudi. There is no rafting on this day, but the trek is enjoyable with beautiful views and typical Nepali villages along the way. At Khudi, all the gear is unloaded and a short hike follows. Once Bhulbhule is reached, camp is set up at one of the vantage points from where great views of the Himalaya can be had. Sunset views are inspiring. Lunch is provided in between the drive. Dinner & Overnight.

Bhulbhule - Ngadi - Khudi

Brekfast. This day starts with a short trek to the put-in point, Ngadi. Sights and sounds on this trek are engaging. Soon after lunch, the action begins as the trip actually starts here. Marsyangdi is full of thrills and spills and any keen rafter will vouch for it. The adventure gets off to a good start as many rapids appear soon after. Rapids Instant Karma, Twinkie, Adrenaline, and Mama’s Big Butt provide unimaginable thrills. The river is unforgiving; any mistake has to be paid for by a knock down. The first halt on the river banks is at Khudi where the camp is set up. Dinner & Overnight.

Khudi -Dam

Breakfast. Each day the river looks bigger. Accordingly, the ride gets bumpier and there is much maneuvering to do. The area is surrounded by lush green jungle and the boat crashes through canyons. After five hours of fun on the rapids and canyons, it is time to stop for lunch on a choice sandy beach. After lunch more adventure follows on the rushing waters of the Marshyangdi which takes the rafters to the camping site before Middle Marsyangdi Hydro Dam, on one of the most beautiful and comfortable sandy beaches. Dinner & Overnight.

Dam - Paundi -Turture

Breakfast. This day begins with a transfer to Paundi which is beyond the Dam. As this concrete structure comes in the way, there is a break in the river journey and everything has to be carried across to a point further down from it. The next put-in point is at Paundi from where another 3 hours of rafting begins encountering Class III rapids. This wonderful trip ends at Turture. However, those wishing to carry on further down have an optional fifth day on the river. This day is an enjoyable scenic float from Turture to Bimalnagar with no rapids to tackle. Dinner & Overnight.
