The ‘raging river’ drains the northern slope of the Annapurna Mountains. It was only opened to rafting in 1996 and yields some of the most exciting class IV-V white water in Nepal. This river demands 100% commitment from both crew and guide. It is totally different from the big volume rivers like Sun Koshi and Karnali, the rapids are technical and requires a very different approach. Big Volume Rivers need power and a good line, the Marshyangdi quickly forges raft crews of complete strangers into true teams. Located on the eastern side of the Annapurna circuit, the Marshyangdi River has long been famous for the beautiful views. With it twist and turn the steep sided gorges walls frame a new mountain backdrop.
