Whenever we ask the local kayakers what their favourite river is, they always tell us its the Marshyandi. It is one of the most intense rivers that exhilarating white water rafting rivers that we offer!

The Marshyangdi, or "Raging River", sources from the Northern slopes of the Annapurna Mountains. The river passes through the barren Manang region before tearing its way into the lower foothills to join with the Trisuli River. The Marshyangdi is steep, technical, full of rapids, and not to be taken lightly. This white water river boasts some of the most exciting rapids in Nepal, with some calming it is the best in the world! This is a favourite of our Nepalese friends. It demands 100% commitment from both crew & guide – it is not for the faint hearted!

Not only renowned for its world class rapids, the Marshyangdi is also a spectacle when it comes to scenery and culture that it has to offer. Sweeping bend gives you a tantalising glimpse of snow-capped Himalayas. Terraced rice fields and secluded traditional villages surround this river. This Marshyangdi will have you begging for more and more at every bend!

This is a brilliant river for those who have already warmed up on an easier river and are wanting to step the level up and test their skills. Check out our Feeling Freaky Tour to have a go on this river!
