Nepal is one of the best places in the world for river rafting. Numerous fine rivers offer excellent opportunities for rafting, canoeing and simply immersing oneself in the magnificent landscape. Nepal's thundering waters, coming from the glaciers of the mighty Himalayan, provide unmatched thrills for rafting and immersing oneself in the landscape. Rivers are graded on a scale of one to six, with one being a swimming pool and six a one-way ticket to your maker.
White water rafting is negotiating river rapids and obstacles in an inflatable rubber boat with a team of up to eight people and a river guide. Rivers are graded from easy to near impossible according to their size, the intensity of their rapids and the difficulties that may affect rescue attempts.
