Embark on Your Marsyandi Rafting Adventure

The Marsyandi River rafting adventure begins at your chosen put-in point, either Nagdi or Bhulbhule, located approximately 5-6 hours west of Kathmandu by bus.

  • Bhulbhule Option: This put-in point eliminates the trek, offering a more direct transition to the river.

Transportation from Pokhara can also be arranged for your convenience. Prepare for 35 kilometers of exhilarating white-water action spread over 2 days. Following your adventure, bus transportation will take you from the take-out point at Bimalnagar back to either Kathmandu (approximately 5 hours) or Pokhara (approximately 2.5 hours). An informative meeting will be held the evening before your trip. This is a valuable opportunity to meet your fellow rafters, guides, and team members, and ask any questions you may have about the upcoming adventure.
