Nepal contains eight of the world’s “eight thousanders”, including Mt. Everest (highest of all) and lots of other snow-capped mountains. And from those great mountains flow the great rivers, smashing down through the foothills. These rivers are the most valuable wealth Nepal possesses because they help to irrigate the land and also generate electricity for Nepalese but most of all they are ever-green and fast flowing thus, very suitable for rafting.
Though most of the rivers originate from the Himalayas, the size, speed, and length of the rivers vary. Some are easy, while some are nearly impossible to navigate. For rafting, the rivers are classified into six categories, i.e. easy, moderate, difficult, very difficult, extremely difficult, and nearly impossible. The easier ones are classified to have moving water with occasional small rapids and the difficult ones have long and very violent rapids with severe hazards. All these categories represent the level of difficulty the rafters could face and the maneuver required to navigate the water. These category of rivers help the rafters to choose the river that best match their skills, financial level, and interests. It doesn’t matter whether you are a beginner or an experienced rafter, there are so many rivers in Nepal of so many types, so it isn’t that hard to find the one that you had always dreamed to raft on (more options are always better).
Nepal has some of the best rafting destinations on earth. Rivers are clean and are capable of giving the excitement you seek. They offer the experience of a lifetime for those who want to take a break from their repetitive or tedious daily life, and for those who live for adventures. The rafting in Nepal is worth it, despite the circumstances.
