Bheri River Rafting commences by taking a one-and-a-half-hour flight to Nepalgunj or a 627 km long drive from Kathmandu. The flight provides an opportunity for spectacular views of the Himalayas. If you prefer to take the flight, a four-hour drive must reach Samjhighat, the put-in point. The drive is a unique experience, winding up through the Siwalik Hills and passing local villages.

One of the best river rafts globally, the Lower Karnali comprises a significant river journey. Depending on the water level in the river, the jungle corridor could take as long as four days. The Seti river mixes from the right once we exit the gorge, and the river grade drops to Class 2. After a day or two of rafting, the river meets Bheri coming from the left. The place has a desirable camping beach if you intend to reach the take-out point at lunchtime the following day. Chisopani, the take-out point, is an impressive bridge spanning the river with plenty of shops selling food, soft drinks, and cold beer. The return journey to Kathmandu is about twenty hours drive with alternative returns via the Bardia National Park or a two hours bus ride to Nepalgunj from where flights are available to Kathmandu.

After an hour's flight with spectacular views of the Himalayas, we reach Nepalgunj. Next, we drive to SamjhiGhat, the put-in point, which takes three to four hours. The drive is a unique experience - winding up through the Siwalik Hills and passing through local villages. On arrival at the starting point, you can rest at your tented camp by the bank of the Bheri River. Dinner around the camp.

After breakfast, we dismantle the camps and start our adventure down the Bheri River. After 20 minutes, the river’s first big rapid arrives—Bherilies in the remote region, still a relatively unknown river in the west of Nepal. The river’s first section is quite rough, with twisted bends creating many exciting rapids. We stop for lunch beside the river and relax by exploring the surrounding area, engaging in bird watching, or simply lazing in the midday sun. The raft continues along the white water with more rapids before it comes to rest at random sandy beaches.

Jamu, the "Exciting" section, gives way to a narrow gorge with vertical cliffs of 200-300 feet on either side interspersed with an open valley where there are small villages. This area is generally scenic, but white water is here too. Overnight stay in a camp along the pristine beach.

We set out for the last day of the raft. The river still holds a few surprises, with several exciting rapids to be encountered. We arrive at the confluence of the Bheri River and the Karnali River after about an hour. Once again, the river enters another gorge section and opens onto the enormous plains of the southern Terai region of Nepal, the entrance to Royal Bardia National Park.
