One of the rivers that hav their source within Nepal, the Budi Gandaki drains the eastern slopes of two great mountains, the Manaslu and Ganesh Himal. It flows into the Trisuli like many rivers do and has an easy gradient from Arughat Bazar just below which is the put-in point. Clasified as Class II and Class III, the Budi Gandaki is another starting point for the Trisuli run.
Very ofter, this trip is combined with a trek in the Gorkha district where great views of Manaslu and Ganesh Himal can be had. A direct route to the put-in point below Arughat is however an easy drive from Kathmandu. Budi Gandaki flows through an open valley and has an easy gradient. This trip is also a cultural experience for rafters as the river flows past typical Nepali villages and the adventure finally ends at Charaudi.
