Best time for Trishuli river rafting

The best time for Trishuli River rafting in Nepal is generally during the post-monsoon and pre-monsoon seasons when the weather is relatively stable, and water levels are optimal for a thrilling and enjoyable experience.

Post-Monsoon (September to November)

After the monsoon season, which typically lasts from June to August, the water levels in the Trishuli River start to recede. The weather during the post-monsoon season is clear, with moderate temperatures and minimal rainfall. This makes it an excellent time for rafting, as the river maintains a good flow without being too turbulent.

Pre-Monsoon (March to May)

The pre-monsoon season, also known as the spring season, is another favorable time for Trishuli River rafting. During this period, the weather is generally warm, and the landscapes come alive with blooming flowers and lush greenery. The river levels are ideal for rafting, offering exciting rapids and stunning scenery.


Trishuli River Rafting offers a thrilling experience for those seeking adventure in a shorter, two-day trip. It’s a relatively safe option that still provides a bouncy ride.

The proximity of the Trishuli River to Kathmandu, its exciting rapids, picturesque scenery, and imposing gorges make it a popular choice for both experienced and novice rafters. The river is bustling with activity during the regular rafting season, but during monsoon, it transforms into a wild and formidable force, offering experienced rafters the opportunity to tackle some of the best big river rafting in the world.

Trishuli River Rafting takes you through breathtaking gorges at its lower section, passing by the towering 2000m high Mahabharata Range. The river typically provides a fun and safe experience with 3+ rapids, and accidents are uncommon. However, during monsoon season, the rapids become more challenging and demanding.
