Karnali is the Nepal’s longest and largest river. Springs from the base of Mt. Kailash (Ngari) the western part of Tibet, the center of the universe for both Buddhist and Hindu believers. Flowing south into Nepal and it forms the major drainage system of the western districts of Nepal. It is one of the finest BIG volume rafting and Kayaking trip in the world. A classic expedition and definitely the best combination trip: short 2 days trekking, rafting, Kayaking, Fishing, wild life safari, remoteness and unpopulated “Wild West”.

Sauli is the rafting put-in-point. The river drops into imposing canyons filled with powerful big volume white-water. These canyons flow into scarcely populated areas of pristine jungle teeming with abundant bird and wildlife. Just enough easier water to regroup and prepare for the next big challenge separates rapids like “Captivity”, “Flip and Strip” and “Gods House”. Towards the end of the trip the river gradient begins to ease as the Karnali leaves the mountains and flows out into the Gangetic plains of Terai. Jungle is thickens and the river is broadens than pristine Beaches become bigger and more beautiful.

As soon as we reach to Nepalgunj Airport our private transport will waiting us, ready to leave for Surkhet.

There is a small rural Airstrip but very rare to get direct flights.

Day 02: Surkhet/Sauli. After breakfast, we will be riding gears loaded truck as far as the dot road goes, perhaps until the syauli village and lunch en route (it’s depend on availability…be flexible). Truck ride is quite interesting passing through forest, villages and spectacular sceneries. After lunch we will be hiking down to rafting put-in point. It’s depends with how we timing, if we are still in time we will start same day, otherwise we pitch the camp here.

Day 03: after this point we have no names for the camping places. However the river gives teams to build and there is enough challenging rapids and water flow to allow for learning errors. We still manage to get at least one great grade IV rapid in and camp. Get an exciting for tomorrow.

Day 04: rises with nice and hot cup of tea or coffee and pack up, have breakfast then get set. This is the type of day people imagine, when they think of Himalayan white-water it is BIG and continuous. The team building is put into full practice and when your raft captain shouts “all forward” he really means it! Enjoy the rowing all the time and camp in this sensational setting.

Day 05: daily routines are as usual, rise with cup of tea or coffee, pack up, have breakfast and get ready to move on. Day is more of same including the notorious GOD’S HOUSE rapid. Don’t forget to take in the bird life, which is equally as abundant as the lush vegetation. Camp and relax.

Day 06: it is not over yet! Keep paddling hard! You are really experiencing the best of the “wild west” and yet another great day with full action packed and breath taking sceneries

Day 07: this is the day almost on holiday for you, as we have set on program a rest day, so you can take time to enjoy your surroundings e.g. fishing if we have rots, a short hiking, playing, relaxing or seating and writing on a great sandy beach.

Day 08-09: we have seen the rapids dying off as we came out of the gorge. We come across the west Seti confluence where the river is broadens. From here next two and half days you have chances to enjoy your journey admiring the country and villages as you come across. You will have seen the safety kayakers in action and will no doubt be inspired, so here you can ask with your guide to for some supervised instructions, or stay on the raft and learn more about the river.
