Marsyandi river rafting

Want to get your heart pumping? Then it's got to be Marsyandi River Rafting. Rising form the Northern slopes of the Annapurna Himal, the river passes through the arid Manang region before roaring its way into the lower foothills to join with the Trisuli River. This monster of a river is also tagged “The Raging River” in the local tongue and offers up what is considered as the best white water rafting and kayaking experience in the world.
Not only renowned for is raging rapids and fast flowing water, the Marsyandi river is also a beauty when it comes to scenery, nature and culture. From every sweeping bend of the river you get tantalizing glimpses of the snow capped peaks back by dropping terraced rice fields and tiny, traditional housed villages. The water runs a clear turquoise blue and is dotted with boulders that have been sculptured by nature herself. This is one serious rafting or kayaking trip that is not for the faint of heart, the Marsyandi is truly a river that demands respect from those who choose to run it.
With one rapid flowing into another, massive undercut boulders, a strong current and some steep drops, this is a truly exhilarating river for rafting. The river dishes out a sever adrenaline overload to any who dare to paddle it, and with an experienced crew this is certainly a choice river for serious rafter, or those who have previously had their taste for white water wetted! If you are looking for a white water challenge, magnificent scenery and pristine water then this is the trip for you.
As a kayaking river, the Marsyandi is a very challenging but enjoyable river and in many renowned international kayakers opinions, it is one of the best rivers in the world to Kayak, with its endless white water, splendid scenery, pleasant camps and gob-smacking views of the Himalaya. We run this river as part of our multiriver kayak expedition.
