One of the most outstanding class 4 rafting rivers in the world. Continuous, exhilarating white water with magnificent mountain backdrops. Recommended for experts kayakers and rafters from Bhote Odar on. The Marshyangdi River rises on the northern slopes of the Annapurna Himal, flows east through an arid valley around Manang, and then swings south to join the Trisuli river at Mugling.
