After the crew assembles the raft, they will explain the safety equipment and proper procedures.
During the day, we run a number of rapids, that rate to 2 to 3. All the rapids have been given Nepali and English names: our guide can relate the story behind each one.
We lunch on a beach remarkable for its unique sculptured boulders. Shortly after lunch, we enter the Trishuli gorge. As the canyon narrows the walls become steep, densely, forested, the current accelerates and the rapids increase in size and frequency. This is the time to hang on.
After such a stimulating experience, it is humbling to see a Majhi (Fisherman) building his precarious traps in such turbulence. Our last rapid, suspension bridge, is named for an extensive suspension bridge. Here we often encounter an enthusiastic audience, they line the bridge excited to see us pass beneath. The geologic formations are tremendously interesting and not worthy. We camp at Kurintar on wildness beach in the Trishuli Valley. Everyone is welcome to help our crew with camp chores. Once the tents are pitched a savory dinner will be prepared over stoves and singing, dancing, and playing the Games.
After Breakfast, we continue down the Trishuli stopping to suit our interests. We spend the whole day within its forested canyon- one of the many in the Mahabharat range. We eat lunch beside the river and have time to explore, birdwatch, photograph, and learn about the local people. The area is inhabited by Magars and Gurung farmers, noted for their friendliness and charm and we have an opportunity for visiting a Vieira and we end our River trip and drive back to Kathmandu/Pokhara/Chitwan.
