Bheri river trip

For a Bheri river trip you have options between taking a one and half hour flight to Nepalgunj from Kathmandu or a 627 km. long journey by road. The flight provides you opportunity for the spectacular views of the Himalayas, if you prefer to take a flight, and then a four hours drive is required to reach Samjhighat, the put on point. The drive itself is a unique experience winding up through local villages. Camped on the Bheri River bank at Samjhighat.

The next day after breakfast, adventure on the Bheri begins. About twenty minutes after sail off, the first big rapid is encountered for shadowing the many to come. The Bheri River itself is so remote that it remains a relatively unexplored river of the west Nepal. The first section of the river is quite tough with twists and turns, creating many exciting rapids. After lunch, in the late evening, come to rest on one of many sandy beaches.


The third day you into an exciting narrow gorge section of the river with vertical cliffs of 200-300 feet on either side. The gorge is interspersed with open valleys where there are small village. In the afternoon, stop sailing and camp at Kuine. The fourth or final day on the river still holds a few surprises with several small but exciting rapids to be encountered. By mid day you arrive at the confluence of the Bheri and the Karnali rivers. Then once again enter another gorge section, which open up onto the huge plains of the southern Tarai of Nepal. A Bheri river trip can be continued with a jungle tour in the Bardia Wildlife Reserve. Otherwise drive back to Kathmandu from Chisapani.
