Rafting Adventure

Bheri River Rafting

Posted by: NTN Admin | Date: November 29, 2009

For a Bheri river trip you have options between taking a one-and-a-half-hour flight to Nepalgunj from Kathmandu or a 627 km long journey by road. The flight provides you opportunity for the spectacular views of the Himalayas. If you prefer to take a flight, then a four-hour drive is required to reach Samjhighat, the put-in point. The drive itself is a unique experience winding up through the Siwalik Hills and passing through local villages.

Bheri River Rafting Itinerary:

Day 01: Fly from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj, it is an hours flight with spectacular views of the Himalayas. On arrival drive to the put in point Samjhi ghat which will take approximately 3 to 4 hours.

Day 02: KUMALGAUN After breakfast we break camps and starts on our adventure down the Bheri River. After 20 minutes, We encounter our firsts big rapid, one of many to come. The Bheri itself is so remote that it remains a relatively unexplored river of west Nepal. The first section of the river is quite rough with twisted bend creating many exiting rapids. We stop for lunch beside the river and take time to explore the surrounding area, bird watch or simply laze in the midday sun. We continue to encounter more white-water and come to the rest on one of the many sandy beaches.

Day 03:Jamu the "Exciting " section gives way to a narrow gorge section with vertical cliffs of 200-300 feet on either side interspersed with open valley where there are small villages. This area is generally scenic but here too white-water in encountered. Once again we find one of the many pristine beach for our camp side for the night.

Day 04:Bardia National Park The final Day on the river still holds a few surprises with several but exciting rapids to be encountered. After an hours float we arrive at the confluence of the Bheri river and The Karnali river.
