Marshyangdi River Rafting Overview
The Marsyandi river rises on the northern slopes of the Annapurna Himal, flows east through an arid valley around Manang, and then swings south to join the Trisuli river at Mugling. Marsyandi means ‘raging river’ in the local dialect, and this aptly describes it. Some of the rivers above Ngadi have been kayaked – the 1980 British Expedition started from Tilicho Lake at 4920m – but much of the upper river should probably be considered unrunnable.
This spectacular whitewater adventure shares some of the most exciting rapids in the world with views of some of the most beautiful mountains in the Himalayas. Offering two days of intense, challenging, and continuous crystal clear whitewater rapids, it is no surprise that this is one of our most popular trips. This river demands 100% commitment from both crew & guide – it is not for the faint-hearted!
Marshyangdi River, the tributary of Trishuli initiates from a confluence of two mountain rivers (Kharsang Khola and Jharsang Khola) and continues to the Trishuli River at Mugling. Marshyangdi River Rafting package starts with a scenic drive to Besi Sahar before moving further to Khudi. We will take a short trek to Ngadi which acts as the put-in point for Marshyangdi River Rafting. This journey blends scenic mountain viewing at the backdrop with the action-packed rafting through the holes and rapids till it hits the endpoint at Bimal Nagar where we drive back to Kathmandu and thus conclude the 4-day package.
