Nepals longest river, the Karnali springs from the base of Mt. Kailash in Tibet, the center of the universe for both Buddhist and Hindu religions. Flowing south into Nepal it forms the major drainage system of the western districts. The Karnali is one of the finest BIG volume river trips in the world, a classic expedition into Nepals remote, "wild west." The starting point is Syauli where the river drops into imposing canyons filled with powerful big volume white water. These canyons flow into the scarcely populated areas of pristine jungle teeming with abundant bird and wildlife. Towards the end of the trip, the river gradient begins to ease as the Karnali leaves the mountains and flows into the Gangetic plains on the Terai. The jungle thickens as the river broadens, and the pristine beaches become bigger and even more beautiful.

Day 08:We see the rapids dying off as we come out of the gorge. We pass the confluence with the Seti River where the river broadens. Today, the next day and a half are a chance to enjoy your journey admiring the country and villages you pass. You will have seen

Day 10:We come to the end of our journey at about lunchtime where our bus will be waiting to collect us. Those who have booked to go to Bardia National Park [highly recommended] will be collected from here as well. Or one can proceed to their own onward journey.
