Best Season for Trishuli River Rafting in Nepal

Most of the months of the year are considered to be the best season for Trishuli  Rafting in Nepal. However, extreme cold temperature and flooding seasons are dangerous for white water rafting in Nepal.

The Trishuli River is fed from the Himalayas, so it remains extremely cold in the winter season. So, we don’t recommend you to book any water trip in the river in winter, especially in January.

Rafting in Nepal

Likewise, the monsoon season in Nepal brings heavy rainfalls resulting into dangerous flooding. The Trishuli River’s large catchment areas lie in the mountain region where new road tracks are opened. The heavy rainfalls sweep the mud into the river that pollutes the river.

The swollen river several times sweep small foothills and mud from the hilly region of Nepal. In the flooding river, we cannot exactly confirm about the volume and current of the water. Thus, Trishuli River Rafting in the monsoon is also not recommended.

On this note, September, October, November, December, February, March, April, May and June are the best season for the- Trishuli Rafting in Nepal.

Right Size of Rafts for the Trishuli River Rafting in Nepal

In seasons, you find fixed group joining departure trips almost every day. However, for the private rafting trip, you need to be in a group of minimum 5 pax.

Safety Measures for the Trishuli River Rafting in Nepal

Water sports activities can sometimes be really dangerous, too. Moreover, the rivers in Nepal flow from the Himalayan and Hilly regions to the plain Tarai region. Thus, their currents are high because they run as if they had to win a marathon match!

Sometimes the boat can turn upside down due to the challenging currents and turns. Although rarely, we hear about the missing or drowning of rafts into the river. So, without safety measures, we should not sail on the water.

Safety measures for the Trishuli River Rafting in Nepal are highly recommended to you. The first is booking a trip in a group of minimum 5 Pax. Secondly, you should wear rafting life jacket that helps you float on the water even if some unwanted conditions appear. Next, you must be above 10 years of age.

Likewise, we recommend you to wear comfortable and water proof clothes and special helmet. Don’t worry you will be provided with life jacket and helmet.
