Trip Introduction; 
Budi Gandaki River has its origin from the eastern slopes of Manaslu and Ganesh Himal. The river flows through the popular Arughat Bazaar - Midwest town of Nepal to reach Benighat - where Budi Gandaki meets Trisuli. Budi Gandaki River is less commercial than other rivers and is in fact very rich in terms of freshwater fishes. Among other species, the most common catches in this river is made of Mahaseer, Eel, Trout, and Catfish. Apart from its best fishing grounds, the beautiful surrounding of this magnificent river also allows one to relax and take a time off in a peaceful environment away from the crowded cities. Budi Gandaki Fishing is an excellent choice for those interested in fishing adventure in Nepal while enjoying the best moments with rewarding catches all being in the calm and serene vicinity of the Budi Gandaki River.  

Budi Gandaki Fishing adventure with Nepal Guide Treks starts with a scenic drive from Kathmandu towards Arkhet Bazaar  - a small town in the mid-west Nepal. Our drive passes through Dhading Besi, Arughat Bazaar and then to Arkhet Bazaar. We will get lot of opportunities to explore the natural wonders along the way, also the activities of local people for daily life survival is quite an experience. We unpack our stuff and get ready with our fishing gears to start our long waited fishing journey. The river provides abundance of freshwater fishes such as Mahaseer, Eel, Snow Trout and Catfish. For next couple of days, we will be having unlimited fishing adventure, indulging ourselves in some of the best fish fights one could imagine while spending one of the best moments of our lives, camping and exploring the natural beauties surrounding the Budi Gandaki River. Casting our fishing lines in the hidden pockets of the river is surely a best way to hook big size fishes. The confluence of Ankhu Khola and Budi Gandaki is considered good for memorable fishing experience. We will continue fishing following the downward flow of the river passing through Machhe Gaun. Our exciting and long awaited fishing trip in Budi Gandaki River with Nepal Guide Treks ends at Benighat - confluence of Budi Gandaki and Trishuli River.
