A pre-departure meeting to answer any questions, arrange timings for the departure and meet the team over a glass of rum (or two) is held the night before.Descending form looming Himalayan giants of famous Annapurna region and passes through along the route of round Annapurna trekking, beautiful villages, guarding temples on the river bank with uninterrupted class 4 to 5 rapids. Under the watchful gaze of Annapurna’s towering peaks. If it’s adventure you seek, you’ll find it on this trip with one day of easy trekking and 4 days of intense white water rafting.
This is sad as initial work for middle dam has started already. Lets raft on Marshyangdi in few year this best river stop flowing free for rafters and kayakers


Day 01: Drive 8 hours to Bensisahar from Kathmandu and then to Khudi to set up 
After reaching Bensisahar we unload the gear and one of our staff will show up with a porter who will carry all the expedition gear to our camp at Khudi. We arrive at Khudi in time to set up camp, relax and find the best spot to take in the magnificence of the surrounding Himalayas at sunset.
Day 02: Trek start from Khudi to Ngadi then back to Ngadi by raft for your night 
After breakfast, we start trekking for a couple of hours to our put in point Ngadi. Lunch will be served, rafts are pumped, gear handed out after and your expedition leader will brief you and train you on land about safety and paddling. Pay attention as you are straight into the rapids and this river has a way of underlining any mistakes! This is the most knuckle gripping section of the river so enjoy it. We encounter rapids as Instant Karma, Twinkie, Adrenaline, and Mama’s Big Butt by Bhulbhule. We finish today back at Khudi and have a well-earned dinner.
Day 03: Start adventure-rafting trip from Khudi and raft up to the sandy beach 
below Bensisahar
From today you have to be prepared to continuous bumping into the challenging rapids and it doesn’t stop after the 1st day. The crystal blue water thunders down steep as waterfall for mile after mile, with lush jungle clinging insecurely to the canyon walls and surreal mountains suspended high above the forested ridges. You have to run on these rapids and tackle the intense whitewater rafting for the next 5 hours. Lunch will be provided on the way and then continue descent to the camping site in the sandy beach. The white sandy beaches below Bensisahar make for the most comfortable nightspot around. 
Day 04: As done before and camp in Bhotewodar
After breakfast we hit directly into whitewater again. At Phaliya Sanghu the whole river is squeezed between vertical walls, which rise 200 ft to a suspension bridge across the river. For a short section after Phaliya Sanghu the river relaxes, the rapids are more open and nowhere as powerful. We end the day at Bhotewodar, where we camp on the banks in the cave of a Shiva temple.
Day 05: Bhotewodar to
The river becomes very mellow and goes through a high walled gorge with birds and vegetation that can only be described as breath taking. We reach our take out point at Bimal Nagar by lunchtime where our transport is waiting to take us back to Pokhara or Chitwan or Kathmandu
