A wonderful short break in Nepal with a wonderful combination of river rafting and a Chitwan Jungle Safari tour in Asia's number one national park at Chitwan. Trisuli River Rafting provides an exciting thrill and floats. This river is fed from the glaciers of Ganesh and Langtang Himal, flowing all the way to Chitwan National Park and finally ending in the Ganges around the Gangetic belts of India. The Trisuli River is a popular river for rafting as it flows by the side of the main highway, and it has all the thrills and excitement plus a scenic view of the landscape, flora, and fauna. Trisuli has friendly rapids and is an ideal trip for beginners, families, and birdwatchers. Trisuli River Rafting is the ultimate way to visit Chitwan National Park with a surge of adrenaline and a scenic float downstream toward the flatland Terai belt of Nepal's Mid-South areas.
After a great scenic float and encountering exciting rapids and bouncy waves, they soon reach the end of the adventure as the drive leads to the deep, dense green jungle at Chitwan National Park.
