Karnali River Adventure, Karnali zone is Far West of Nepal and this is name of one of the nice river of Nepal. which starts from the Kanziroba and glacier of other small peaks as well as Rara lake Rapid encountered on this river is 1 to 5 class.

Being the longest river in all of Nepal, the Karnali drains a huge & well-developed catchment Spring snowmelts can drive the river up dramatically in a matter of hours, as the river rises the difficulty increases exponentially. The river flows through steep & constricted kayos where the rapids are close together, giving little opportunity to correct for potential mistakes The trip starts with along but interesting bus ride (optional flight) over to the far West of Nepal. an area only recently opened to tourism.

From the frontier town of Surkhet there is a lovely two day trek through lowland Sal forest to the village of Saul. From Sauli it’s 180 km to the nest road access at Chisopani, on the northern border of the Royal Bardia National Park. The river section takes about seven days, giving plenty of time to explore some of the side canyons and waterfalls, which comes in to the river valley
