NEPAL – Karnali River

1st – 10th November 2018, 10 day packrafting expedition.

Yes, you read the title correctly! This is the trip of a lifetime and what packrafting is all about. 10 days of adventure in EPIC proportions. This is an opportunity to join the ultimate river expedition in Nepal, combining epic whitewater rapids with relaxed sections to just cruise and soak up the dramatic and pristine scenery of the Bardia National Park.

Nepal’s longest and largest river, the Karnali springs forth from Mount Kailash, a sacred mountain in Tibet important to both Buddhist and Hindu. Flowing south into Nepal, it forms the major drainage system for the western districts before dropping off into dramatic canyons raging with big volume whitewater and eventually flowing into remote areas of pristine jungle rich with wildlife.

The first half of this river journey into the “wild west” offers incredible whitewater excitement, commonly described as “a thrill a minute roller coaster ride”. The second half of the trip settles down into some more moderate & gentle rapids and eventually a relaxed float rewarded by dramatic and hugely varied pristine and unspoiled wilderness.

The Karnali River finishes at the famous Bardia National Park – the most jungle in Nepal rich in wildlife. Many consider this spectacular journey one of the finest rafting rivers in the world.

If you are looking for a truly authentic, intensely remote river expedition with whitewater combined with a relaxed and peaceful float into pristine wilderness – then this is the ultimate adventure for you!
