Nepal has earned the reputation one of the best destinations for white water rafting. Cruising down rushing rivers of crashing waves and swirling rapids can make up excitement of a lifetime. Rafting trips for some is the highlight of their stay in Nepal. The waters in Nepal offer something for everybody: 5 - 5 + rivers with raging white water rapids for the adventurous, to Grade 2-3 rivers with a few rapids for novices. Rafters also have a choice raning from two to three - week trips or trips of two or three days. Rafting is one of the most exciting ways of exploring the nooks and carannies of Nepal. Options range from paddle rafting as a team to laxury safari-style trip where staff is provided to address the group needs to kayaking alone in the waters. Yet another extremely popular water-sport option is canyoning to explore hidden landscape. The government has opened sections of 16 rivers graded on a scale of 1 to 5 for commercial rafting.
