The Trisuli River starts up on the Tibetan plateau near the famous Langtang region. Legend has it that the god Shiva high up in the Himalaya at Gosainkund drove his trident into the ground and created three springs, the source of the river and hence the name Trishuli.
The river is big volume and famous in Nepal for its kayaking and rafting and there are a variety of different sections depending on the ability of the group. One day to five day trips you can journey downstream through rapids such as ‘Upset’, ‘Surprise’ and ‘Ladies Delight’ just to name a few.
There is also time to enjoy the scenery and wave to the villagers on the calmer sections. Big sandy beaches provide ideal spots to camp.
The volume is medium. A fantastic river to warm up on with mostly class 2-3 plus bigger volume whitewater.
