From the heights of the Himalayas, rivers surge down the foothills and across the plains creating some of the most scenic, exciting and challenging rafting experiences in the world. There are rivers presenting a wide range of difficulties and a selection of rafting companies offer different types of trips, from gentle drifts ideal for families, grade 2-3 rapids for first timers, or world-class raging white water for the ultimate adrenalin rush. Rafters can also choose from two-day to two-week trips that usually involve some trekking, and the options include paddling, oaring or kayaking. Kayak clinics are also available on the Seti River. The most popular white water rafting trip from Pokhara is on the Kali Gandaki River with extreme rapids (grade 5 to 5+) and impressive scenery as the river winds its way through canyons and deep gorges.
