Marsyangdi river rising on the northern slope of the Annapurna Himal joins with at Mugling. The river considered as one of the best class 4 river in the world continuous & exhilarating whitewater with magnificent mountain backdrops.

You have to drive up to Besishahar and take a 4/5 hrs trek further up to Nagdi to reach to the starting point. Literal meaning of Marsyangdi is raging river in local language.

This is a remote white water experience and one of the finest rafting trips of its length in the world – nearly 400 kms, most of it class 3 to 5, with only a few kilometers of porterage. In the remote ‘Wild West’ of Nepal this is the complete expedition experience.

The Marsyangdi, Nepal’s mightiest river, descends through the Himalaya in a series of magnificent gorges. In traditional Nepalese fashion, dozens of porters carry our equipment to and from the river. Exceptional big volume river through tropical jungle, with deserted beaches and once in a while remote small villages.

For the eight days and 180 kilometers we won’t see a single sign of the modern world. It’s one of the last places in Nepal that you can see old growth forest and have a real chance of seeing Nepal’s wildlife. Expeditions have seen Langur and Rhesus Monkeys, leopards, bear, martins, deer, crocodiles and gharials, even tigers. The river also supports some of the finest fish habitat in Nepal, with giant catfish and Golden Mahseer prowling the depths.

Whitewater ranges from easy going class three to bone crushing class five depending on the time of year. Regardless of the month, the Marsyangdi always offers good powerful rapids with miles of beautiful scenery, pristine beaches and deep river gorges.
