Day 02:
Early morning white water rafting to hit Tea Pot and Rocky Two rapids. Proceed to Simaltal or Gaighat. Drive back to Kathmandu / Pokhara / Chitwan.

Holy Importance
As per the Hindu legend, the Trisuli River was created by Lord Shiva whlie driving his trident (in Nepali 'Trisul') on the hill just above the Gosainkunda Lake. The Trisuli river was created by Shiva to get cool rest from the three springs.

Kayaking in Trisuli River
Trishuli river has been kayaked from near the Tibetan border down to Betrawati by some of America's top expedition boaters. The intermediate paddler will probably want to start at Betrawati, where the river is relatively small - 85 cubecs as against 300 near Mugling. This gives a day or two to get used to the nature of the river before hitting the bigger rapids lower downstream. The more experienced paddler may prefer to concentrate on playing the big rapids, putting in below Baireni and perhaps accompanying a raft group so that he has a light kayak.
