Nepal is blessed with an astonishing diversity of rivers that emerge from the Himalayan Mountains. And so, too, Nepal is blessed with a tremendous variety of white-water rafting/kayaking experiences. From a half day to full-on 12-day river expedition, Himalaya Vacations and Treks offers it all. And we do fishing trips too!
