Trishuli River rafting is one of the most popular rafting rivers in Nepal which offers an admirable chance to observe the diversity of demography, landscapes, and cultural heritage and the flora and fauna. Since the river flows from a famous pilgrimage place Gosaikunda which lies high in the Himalaya, the name of this river was emerged as Trishuli. According to myth, high in the peak at Gosainkunda the god Shiva drove his trident into the rocky mountain to generate three springs –the source of the river and hence the name derived as Trishuli.
This renowned rafting offers an easy way in from Katmandu, Chitwan, and Pokhara as well. Astonishing beautiful valleys, striking gorges, and enlivening rapids make this river a wonderful rafting destination. In the months of monsoon, the river runs outrageously and there are barely any rafters around. So, the rafting on the Trishuli during monsoon season is the most exciting adventure you can do in Nepal. Trishuli River rafting is a good choice for those looking for a short river trip, without the challenge of huge rapids, but with some really exciting rapids, with stunning scenery and a fairly calm environment. The names given to the exciting rapids of Trishuli River are; Ladies Delight, Snail’s nose, Monkey rapid, Teendevi, Malekhu rapid, Upset, Surprise, S-Bend, Cotton Pony, Monsoon, Pinball Rapid, etc. Rafting in the Trishuli river is undeniably the most stirring adventurous sports you can do in Nepal during monsoon, and probably one of the best big water rafting trips offered anywhere in the world.
