Bheri River

The Lower Karnali can be run in five to seven days and still proves a major river journey that has got to fall in the category of being one of the best in the world. Depending on the level of the river, day four could still be in the jungle corridor. Once the gorge is exited the Seti river enters from the right, (this is the western Nepal Seti, not to be confused with the river close to Pokhara) and the river grade drops to class 2. Another day or two brings you to the Bheri river, entering from the left which has a good camping beach if you want to reach the take-out at lunchtime the following day. At the take-out, Chisopani, is an an impressive bridge spanning the river and plenty of shops selling food, soft drinks and cold beer. The return bus journey to Kathmandu is about twenty hours. Alternative returns would be via the Bardia national park which is located nearby, or bus to Nepalganj (2 hours) and fly to Kathmandu from there.

 

 

 

 

Itinerary :
Day 01: Flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj, it is an hours flight with spectacular views of the Himalayas. On arrival drive to the put in point Samjhi ghat which will take approximately 3 to 4 hours. The drive it self is a unique experience, winding up through the Siwalik Hills and passing through local village.
On arrival at the starting point your own-tented camp awaits you by the bank of the Bheri River. Dinner will be layout for you around the camp.
Day 02: KUMALGAUN After breakfast we break camps and starts on our adventure down the Bheri River. After 20 minutes, We encounter our firsts big rapid, one of many to come. The Bheri itself is so remote that it remains a relatively unexplored river of west Nepal. The first section of the river is quite rough with twisted bend creating many exiting rapids. We stop for lunch beside the river and take time to explore the surrounding area, bird watch or simply laze in the midday sun. We continue to encounter more white-water and come to the rest on one of the many sandy beaches.
Day 03: Jamu the "Exciting " section gives way to a narrow gorge section with vertical cliffs of 200-300 feet on either side interspersed with open valley where there are small villages. This area is generally scenic but here too white-water in encountered. Once again we find one of the many pristine beach for our camp side for the night.
Day 04: Bardia National Park The final Day on the river still holds a few surprises with several but exciting rapids to be encountered. After an hours float we arrive at the confluence of the Bheri river and The Karnali river. Once again we enter another gorge section, This time opening onto the huge plain plains of the southern tarai region of Nepal. Once through this gorge we enter into the Bardia National Park.

Price for the Trip :

The cost for the trek or tour will depend on several different factors. The type of accommodation you choose in Kathmandu and/or another destination will make a difference to the overall costing (budget to 5 star accommodation). The mode of transportation you prefer is the another factor which affects the cost of your package, for example prices change significantly between flight versus private car/van, tourist/local bus. The number of guides and/or porters required will also affect the total cost of your trek. From above reason the same trek/tour can vary in price quite substantially.
