Nepal is a river runner's paradise in the field of rafting with a variety of scenic beauties possibly not surpassed in any other part of the world. As the course of the river takes one from the cold Himalayan region all the way down to the hot humid plains of the Terai, a vast changing landscape unfolds before the beholder, unraveling the unmatched beauty of Nepal. A kingfisher swoops down to catch fish, an eagle circles high above keeping a sharp eye on prey below, Gharial crocodiles lie still on the river banks while monkeys comb the beaches for food. Such sights are common on a trip down the river. The rivers of Nepal have their source in the high Himalaya where melting glaciers feed the ever flowing rivers. Some of the major rivers for rafting are Karnali, Sunkoshi, Kaligandaki, Trishuli, Marshyangdi, Tamur and Kanchanjunga, Bhotekoshi, Seti, Bheri etc.
Rivers in Nepal
The rivers of Nepal are divided into three catagories: large, medium, and small (streams and rivulates)
Large: The Koshi, Gandaki and the Karnali fall in this category and are located in the east, central Nepal and the west respectively.
The Tamur, Arun, Dudh Koshi, Likhu, Tama Koshi, Sun Koshi, and Indravati rivers make up the Kosho river system and are known as Sapta Koshi(sapta=seven) The Arun and Sun Koshi originate in Tibet and the confluence of the Sapta Koshi lies in the Sgarmatha Zone. The Sapta Koshi flows down through many narrow gorges to eventually reach the vast open plains until it merges with the Ganges in India.
The Kali Gandaki, Budi Gandaki, Marsyangdi, Trishuli, Seti, Madi and Daraundi rivers together form the Gandaki river system. The longest river of Nepal, Kali Gandaki originates in Mustang and merges with the Trishuli, the main stream of the Gandaki river system is in Deoghat and hence the river is called Narayani.
