hi Pierre and Mahesh. Very nice to hear from you. Great to hear that Pierre now you are in Kathmandu. We had a wonderful visit to Nepal, the weather was great during the Kali Gandaki trek. We did what wanted to do in Kathmandu and Pokhara and we even managed to do the mountain flight. What more could we ask for. Mahesh and Lhakpa looked after us very well and we came back with wonderful memories of Nepal, with a strong desire to return. Thanks for Frens Himalayan Treks and Expedition. Anu Mitra

Karnali river rafting

Karnali river is located into far west of Nepal: this is one of the most isolated and least explored areas of Nepal. This region offers some tremoudous challenges.

Karnali descends through the Himalayas after rising high in Tibet near Mont Kailash known as the center of universe by both Hindus and Buddhists.

After passing through a series of wonderful gorges and forests, the river emerges ont the plain of Terai, continues across the Royal Bardia wildlife reserve and the northern plain of India.
A trip on the Karnali combines a small trek and an exceptional rafting through tropical jungles with a possibility of a wildlife safari in the bardia national park.

For those who are looking for a long wilderness expedition.
