Useful Info


Fiske Äventyr i Karnali - NEPAL

Namaste !!
We just finished our fishing adventure in Karnali River with assistance of Nepal Guide Treks. We want to say that it was some great fishing experience we ever had. Back in Sweden, we fish mostly in the lakes - good fights though. However, river fishing and rafting in the Karnali River of Nepal was truly worth. Words are not really enough to describe the adventurous rafting experience in the Karnali river. We recommend this company for promising adventure trips in Nepal. We are sure that we will come back and do more trips with you in future.
Hejdå Nepal !!
Oscar och Filip
