Day 01: Flight from Kathmandu to Nepalganj

It is 1hour flight with spectacular views of the Himalaya, and transfer to Samjhighat, will take approximately 3-4 hours. The drive itself is a unique experience, winding up through the Siwalik Hills and passing through local villages. Crew waits you by the bank of the Bheri, night at tent. Dinner will prepared and be layout around the camp.

Day 02: Samjhighat to Kumalgaon

Day begins with hot cup of tea, after breakfast we break campsite and starts on our expedition down on the Bheri. Just 20 minutes after we start, we encounter our first 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 Bheri is quite rough with twisted bend creating many exciting rapids. We stop for lunch beside the river and take a time to explore the surrounding area, bird watching or simply laze in the midday sun. We continue to encounter more white-water and come to the rest on one of sandy beaches.

Day 03: Kumalgaon to Jamu

Very exciting section gives way to a narrow gorge 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 also too encountered the white-water. Once again we find one of the many pristine beaches for our camp side for next couple of nights.

Day 04 and 5:

We are encountering fishing programs, between Jamu and Chisopani this is the section where you enjoy fishing.

Day 06: Jamu - Rhino lodge Bardia

Royal Bardia National Park in the final day on the river but still holds a few surprises with several exciting rapids to be encountered. After an hour float we arrive at the confluence of Bheri and Karnali. Once again we enter another gorge section, this time opening onto the huge plain, the plains of southern Terai  region of  Nepal. Through this gorge we enter into the Royal Bardia National Park. It depends how we schedule the program, either continue floating or meet one of Rhinos staff and transfer to lodge.
