Trishuli River Rafting

Trishuli River is one of the famous white water rafting rivers in Nepal. Trishuli River originates from the famous pilgrimage site of Gosainkund in the High Himalayas. It is believed that lord Shiva drove his trident into the rocky mountain of Himalaya and created three springs to quench his thirst after swallowing the poison that threatened to destroy the earth. The source of the River was so formed by a Trishul (trident) hence called the Trishuli. Name of this river, Trishuli, followed from a famous pilgrimage place Gosainkund which lies high in the Himalaya. From the high Himalayas the River flows with great speed down to the Mahabharata range and eventually flows down the Terai.
