The Rivers of Nepal

Well, Nepal is the land of soaring mountains including Mount Everest, the highest mountain peak that can offer a tremendously mind-blowing experience of white water rafting.

In short, it is the journey only meant for the most courageous rafters. The small stones and lofty rocks simply make your rafting very tough and so the sport is not for a weak heart and not so firm mind. But, for those who can take it up, the excitement is much more than Costa Rica and fun is much more than any challenging adventure. Next time when you take a tour of Nepal, do not leave without taking the wildest rafting on its mountainous rivers.
