A little traveled, but easy river with typical Nepali villages and good mountain views, ideally combined with a scenic, pleasant and easy two-day trek to the put in.
The Budhi Gandaki drains the eastern slopes of Manaslu and the Ganesh Himal before flowing south through a steep-sided valley to join the Trisuli. Very few groups have paddled the Budhi Gandaki, as the trek takes already two days and the river will take two days only.
We recommend the river as a start to the Trisuli and an onward journey down to Chitwan National Park. This would give you a two-day trek, four days rafting and some relaxation in the National-park.
Rafting: A pleasant trip of class 2 and easy class three that offers an attractive start to a Trisuli trip including a two day trek out of Gorkha.
Kayaking: A straight forward river trip for the Beginner or intermediate kayaker, which wants to have a short and easy trek and kayak experience or a warm up for the Trisuli.
