Early morning, drive from Pokhara to Maldunga and set camps on the river bank for lunch. After lunch, we will have a short briefing and preparations. And then set out for our first day’s rafting trip encountering a series of Class III and Class IV rapids. While paddling, we may come across fascinating rock formations on the canyon walls and villages perched on hilltops. Birding is a special feature of this trip. We may see birds like common redshank, cormorants, and kingfishers along the river. Enjoy the evening camping on the sandy beach of the river. Overnight in tent camp.
Day 2: Purtighat
The second day’s trip begins with more Class III and Class IV rapids. But as the day progresses, fewer of these are encountered than the previous day. Further downstream, the landscape changes gradually, and the valleys become wider. We end our day on the banks at Purtighat for the night. Overnight in tent camp.
Day 3: Purtighat – Mirmi-Pokhara
Today we visit the village of Seti Beni, situated at the confluence of two rivers marked by a massive boulder considered sacred to Hindus. We continue our trip encountering small rapids, the valley then widens, and the gorge is left behind. The river loses its ferocity, and the surrounding hills are no longer steep. Back in civilization, farmers can be seen busy in their fields and children waving. We end our trip with a lunch stop. And after lunch, drive about five hours to Pokhara.
