Seasonal variation of rivers in Nepal
The rivers in Nepal change with the seasons. Every year, after the heavy monsoon the water swells, changing the flow of the rivers and the nature of the rapids. New rapids are created and the river sports become more difficult and some simply impossible to navigate. We have long been monitoring changes, organizing the river sports in different rivers in Nepal and their rapids, so that we can always ensure the safety of our clients and plan expeditions with the great care.
When to go
The most excellent times for rafting considered to be September to early December and March to early June. From early September to early October and May to June the rivers can be extremely high with monsoon run-off. Any expeditions attempted at this time require a very experienced rafting company with an intimate knowledge of the river and strong teams, as high flows are potentially the most dangerous time to be on the river. From mid October onwards the weather is settled and this in one of the most popular times to raft, In December many of the rivers become too cold to enjoy and the days are short with the start of the winter. The summer season from March to early June has lower water flows to begin with, which generally means the rapids aren't as powerful. The rivers rise again in May with pre-monsoon storms and some snowmelt, and then we can still organize the sport.
