Nepal is a holy land, blessed with four major river systems. They are: Saptakoshi River in extreme Eastern Nepal, Narayani in Central Nepal, Karnali in Western Nepal and Mahakali in Far Western Nepal. Bheri River is one of the tributary rivers of Saptakoshi River System. Bheri River is a prime tributary of Karnali River, located in the remote Far Western Nepal, initiating from the Dolpo Region and stretching through Valley of Surkhet. Then, Bheri River merges with Karnali River which later extends through the plain valley of Terai to Royal Bardiya National Park. Bheri River Rafting bestows some of the best rafting rapids in Nepal.
The view of hills, mountains, and woods with their diverse flora and fauna, will add much beauty to the turbulent rapids at Bheri River. Upon finishing the rafting expedition, we head to Royal Bardia National Park to experience a once-in-a-lifetime safari ride. Bheri River Rafting commences by boarding a flight to Nepalgunj and driving to Samjhighat which serves as the initial point for Bheri River Rafting. Undergoing the enthralling experiences of encountering the series of turbulent rapids, we will float through spot nearby Kumalgaun and Jumu before winding up at Royal Bardia National Park.
