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.
