    A picturesque drive of about 8hrs takes us to Besi Sahar. Alittle further from Besi Sahar is Khudi where we will set our camp for the night under the marvelous glow of the stars. Overnight in tented camp.

      Two hours of trekking will lead us to Ngadi which marks the embarking point for Marshyangdi River Rafting. Floating back to Khudi offers spectacular views of Manaslu Mountain, while we face rapids that go by the names of Instant Karma, Twinkle, Adrenaline and Mama’s Big Butt near Bhulbhule. Overnight in tented camp.

        Today, we will float all the way down to Besi Sahar, sailing on the crystal blue water with views of trees clinging to the canyon walls, and mountains suspended high above the forested ridge. Overnight in Besi Sahar.

          An early morning raft ride of about 3hours leads us to the recently built dam at Phaliya Sanghu where whole river is squeezed between vertical walls that rise 200ft to a suspension bridge. Leaving Phaliya Sanghu behind, we sail forward to Bhote Wodar where we call it a day, taking in the scenic mountain views. Overnight in tented camp.

            This day marks the end of Marshyangdi River Rafting as we pass through high walled gorge with birds and vegetation to Bimal Nagar, the end point of Marshyangdi River Rafting. We will take a drive back to Kathmandu. Farewell dinner and overnight in hotel.
