Day 02: KUMALGAUN After breakfast we break camps and starts on our adventure down the Bheri River. After 20 minutes, we encounter our first's big rapid, one of many to come. The Bheri itself is so remote that it remains a relatively unexplored river of west Nepal. The first section of the river is quite rough with twisted bend creating many exiting rapids. We stop for lunch beside the river and take time to explore the surrounding area, bird watch or simply laze in the midday sun. We continue to encounter more white-water and come to the rest on one of the many sandy beaches.

Day 03: Jamu- the "Exciting" section gives way to a narrow gorge section with vertical cliffs of 200-300 feet on either side interspersed with open valley where there are small villages. This area is generally scenic but here too white-water in encountered. Once again we find one of the many pristine beaches for our camp side for the night.

Day 04: Bardia National Park the final Day on the river still holds a few surprises with several but exciting rapids to be encountered. After an hour's float we arrive at the confluence of the Bheri River and The Karnali River. Once again we enter another gorge section, this time opening onto the huge plain plains of the southern tarai region of Nepal. Once through this gorge we enter into the Royal Bardia National Park.
