The river rafting also offers to experience Tharu culture and jungle adventure activities with camping stays on the river bank of Karnali. The karnali is one of the best rivers of the world; flows in the western untouched and remote world of Himalayan foothill. It offers steep and challenging white water and elusive wilderness. The rafting continues through pristine jungles with the opportunities to explore passing some gorges and really challenging rapids.This unevenness of the river means that any enlargement in water volume has a more pronounced effect on the difficulty of the rapid, and this makes it a river that is best run at low and medium flows. The wilderness of karnali Rafting continues facing the challenges of big bounces and rapids in big water. Rafting continues with excitements sometimes forgetting to breathe in handling the technical difficulties. Enjoy the ride all day and camp in this sensational setting. The excitement reaches its height in white water where you dip into the waters from rapids. These canyons flow into scarcely populated areas of pristine jungle teeming with abundant bird and wildlife. Rapids like Captivity¬Ě, Flip and Strip and Gods House are separated by just enough easier water to regroup and prepare for the next big challenge. Continues with bouncy and exciting big rapids which can be one of the finest rafting trips ever made and life memory.
