A Pre-departure meeting is held the evening prior to your departure at our Kathmandu sales office, 6pm.
Day 01: Drive Sukute Beach Resort (69km). Lunch. Drive to put- in (22km). Load rafts - safety briefing depart.
The first day provides about three and half hour of pure heart pumping adrenaline. After a long series of class 3 rapids we drop into the first class 4 rapid, " Gerbil in the Plumbing". From here there is a stretch of class 3 whitewater and then we come to the crux of the day, which is a long, technical rapid, "Frog in a Blender". A long series of class 3+/4 rapids lead us into one of the guide’s favourites, "Carnal Knowledge of a Deviant Nature". The remaining ten kilometers of river is a non-stop series of technical class 3 and 4 drops. The river flows through a beautiful narrow canyon with lush green vegetation and waterfalls coming in from the steep stone walls. At the bottom of this stretch is the village of Barabise, our take out.
Day 02: Breakfast, pack gear and drive up stream for another action packed day. Lunch on the river before continuing to the previous days take out. From here the action increases as we head down towards the steep and technical rapids of the, "The Great Wall". From here rapid follows rapid; "Liquid Bliss", "Fake Right Go Left" and "My God, What To Do?" culminate with, "Dazed And Confused". Without a doubt this is some of the finest whitewater rafting to be had anywhere. Once gear is loaded it’s a short drive to Sukute Resort, time for a cold beer before returning to Kathmandu.
