The river drops steeply offering relentless stretches of class iv-v white water. Boulder gardens, small waterfalls, steep chutes and 90 degree bends are just some of the obstacles to be overcome. Like the Marsyangdi, this river is not typical of the big volume water of the Himalayan, it is steep and technical and requires a reactive.

It is totally difference from the big volume rivers like the Karnali and Sun Koshi the rapids are technical and require a very different approach. Big volume rivers need power and good lime, the Marsyangdi needs fast reactions power land a good line from the crew to get though this pin ball machine river. The Marsyangdi quickly forges raft crews of complete strangers into true rafting teams. Located on the eastern side of the Annapurna circuit, the Marsyangdi rivers has long been famous for the beautiful views. With each twist and turn the steep sided gorge walls frame a new mountain backdrop.
