Karnali: The Big Bend is the mightiest of all rivers in the remote west of Nepal. Karnali rafting is one of the finest big volume rafting and kayaking trips in Nepal.

On this trip we trek for few days with dozen of porters to carry our equipment to one of the most isolated and seldom explored areas. Then descending through a series of magnificent gorges, tropical jungles, deserted beaches and rural farm villages  with full of thrills we continue our lifetime adventure to end at Chisopani in this exceptional big volume of white water rapids.

The final stop of this Karnali rafting will be close to Bardiya National Park from where we can either drive or fly back to Kathmandu or Pokhara, or we can go for jungle safari in Bardiya National Park or Chitwan National Park. Along with other so many, Nepal Adventure Team also organizes this awesome rafting expedition throughout the year. Please contact us for further information.
