Gulariya (Bardia), Dec. 28: Rafting in Karnali, the longest river of Nepal is gaining popularity here thanks to the opportunity for rafters to get a glimpse of the wildlife in Bardia national park.

Rafting from Chisapani to Tikapur park and Thakurdwara gives one a rare opportunity to witness tiger, elephant, crocodile and other endangered wildlife, in additional to the adventure of the water voyage downstream, said a rafter Laba Shahi.

Dolphins are added attraction though more likely to be seen during the rainy season.

Commercial rafting has already begun from Tallo Dhungeswor of Karnali river to the Karnali bridge and there are possibilities of expanding the route further south of the bridge, said General Secretary of Nepal Association of Rafting Agents or NARA Ganga Nepal.

As per NARA estimates, some three to four thousand tourists enjoy rafting in Karnali every year.  RSS
