Trishuli River Rafting is the most famous and thrilling white water activity available in Nepal. The package is suitable for all kinds of adventurers for it being an entry level water sports. The rafting begins at Charaudi Red House, a base station at Trishuli Gorge.


Trishuli River

The Trishuli River is one of the major tributaries of the Narayani River basin in central Nepal. However, the river is formed by the merger of Kyirong Tsangpo and Lende Khola originating in Gyirong County of Tibet, which join together near the Rasuwa Gadhi on the Nepal–Tibet border. Moreover, the valley of the river provided the traditional trade route between the Kathmandu Valley and Tibet.


The Trishuli is named after the trishula or trident of Shiva, the most powerful god in the Hindu pantheon. Furthermore, there is a legend that says high in the Himalayas at Gosaikunda, Shiva drove his trident into the ground to create three springs – the source of the river and hence its name Trisuli.


Even though the Trishuli river is physically formed at the Rasuwa Fort, it is not officially called so at this stage. It is referred to by the generic name of “Bhot Koshi” (“the river from Tibet”). Moreover, tt is called Trishuli Ganga after receiving the Trisuli Khola stream originating in Gosainkunda near Dhunche. This would make Gosainkunda the official source of the river, and the river from Tibet a tributary.


Tributaries Tadi Khola and Likhu Khola join Trishuli near the city of Bidur. The valleys of these rivers provide a link-up to Kathmandu via the pass of Baad Bhanjyang. Besides, these valleys made up the traditional route between Kathmandu and Tibet. Proceeding further, Trishuli joins the Narayani River at Devghat. Narayani flows south into India and joins the Ganges.
