our client says Reise ins geheimnisvolle Königreich Mustang Am 1. Mai 2010 machten sich, 7 abenteuerhungrige Schweizer auf den langen Flug nach Kathmandu. Einerseits mit grosser Vorfreude und andererseits mit einem etwas mulmigen Gefühl, da in ganz Nepal einen Generalstreik vorausgesagt wurde und wir nicht wussten ob unser Trekking ins Königreich Mustang wirklich zustande kommen wird. Doch am Flughafen in Kathmandu wurden wir schon von Yagya unserem Trekkinguide vor Ort freundlich empfangen und er cauffierte uns mit dem Bus das erste Mal durch die Strassen von Kathmandu in unser Hotel im Stadtteil Tamel. Durch den Streik waren alle Einheimischen auf der Strasse, überall wurden Parolen gerufen , rote Flaggen und T-Shirt getragen, es herrschte ein richtiges Chaos und das richtige Leben stand völlig still, ausser wir als Touristen wurden noch in der Stadt herumgefahren. Müde und froh sind wir dann im Hotel angekommen und genossen ein par Stunden für uns bis wir uns dann gemeinsam zum Abendessen trafen. read more View All

Rafting in Marshyangdi
Loading image. Please wait
The Marshyangdi is the mother of all rivers. In the local dialect, it means 'raging one' and rage it does! Few rivers rival the Marshyangdi for exhilarating whitewater and unparalleled mountain views. It is steep, powerful and not to be underestimated. With some of the wildest commercially run white water in the world, sustained sections of steep technical rafting test our teamwork throughout the trip. Usually a turquoise blue in color, the rapids wrap themselves around weirdly sculpted boulders and steep chutes plunge into deep green pools as the river drops down from the Annapurna range. With the awe inspiring, breathtaking backdrop of the Manaslu and Annapurna ranges, it is a photographer dream. It may be a dream of a whitewater run, but it is a logistical nightmare. Even still, our guides fight among themselves for the honor of running it. The huge boulders require instinctive and expert river reading skills to identify the right lines. The rapids are so continuous and technical that we run the rafts empty of gear for maneuverability. In true Nepali style, we employ porters to carry our gear. Don't worry; we still manage to squeeze on board our extensive first aid kit and the exceptional Drift Nepal lunch box. If you ever see a group of wizened river rats drowning in a Pokhara bar, you may hear the Marshyangdi described as an Adrenaline overload, most beautiful river I have ever done, Orgasmic, a Jewel of a river or Liquid Madness!

Best time to Raft :
There are two rafting seasons. The best season is September following the monsoon and extending through October, November and sometimes early December. The second season follows the spring thaw from March to May, the best water being in April/ May. Combine the Marshyangdi or the Kali Gandaki with any of our treks in the Annapurna Region If you are short of time we can arrange an airfare back from Pokhara to Kathmandu (or vice- versa). Keen to see a tiger? Add on a jungle safari to Royal Chitwan or Bardia National Park.
