BEST FOR RAFTING
February, March, April, October and November are
considered to be the best time for rafting as the water
level is not very high and the weather is nice and
pleasant. June, July, August and September are the
monsoon period in Nepal and hence the water level is
very high with strong current and massive waves.
December & January are our winter months and can be
quite cold especially when wet.
