Marsyangdi Rafting

The "raging river", drains the northern slopes of the Annapurna mountains. Opened to rafting in 1996 it yields some of the most exciting class iv-v white water in Nepal. This river demands 100% commitment from both crew and guide. It is not for the faint hearted !  
 
Located on the eastern side of the Annapurna circuit, the Marsyangdi River has long been famous for the beautiful views and world class white water. With each twist and turn the steep sided gorge walls frame a new mountain backdrop.
