We met our guide at the hotel lobby in the morning, then took a short walk to the lakeside. On the lakeside a raft was waiting for us to take us across the lake. We rafted through Phewa lake by passing fully around the Barahi temple in the middle. Then we hiked up a forested trail filled with rare Himalayan flora. At the top we enjoyed the views of stunning white Buddhist stupa along with 360-degree views of Pokhara Valley, Phewa Lake and beautiful Annapurna massifs Hiunchuli, Machhapuchre and Dhaulagiri.
Nepal has a reputation for being one of the best places in the world for rafting, with outstanding river journeys ranging from steep, adrenaline-charged mountain streams to classic big-volume wilderness expeditions. Warm water, a subtropical climate and huge white sandy beaches that are ideal for camping add further to the appeal. Rivers like Sunkoshi, Bhotekoshi, Karnali, Tamur, Bheri, Trisuli, Seti, Kaligandaki are some of the rivers that are well known for White Water Rafting.
