Catch of the Day
If you are an adventurous angler who is looking to go further afield to find your next catch then Nepal has something to offer. Famous for Golden Masheer and giant Catfish, the Babhai rivers meanders its way from the foothills of the Himalaya to the plains and jungle of Bardia National Park. Your trip starts with either a 14 hour bus journey or a short flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj, depending on your budget, then a two hour transfer by vehicle to Bardia National Park. Here you will spend your first night in a homely resort surrounded by the locals, one horned rhinos, elephants and the elusive Bengali tiger. After an early breakfast we hop in the vehicle with all our gear for a 1 hour journey to our starting point. From here we will spend the next 3 ½ days in the best fishing spots in Nepal, feeling the excitement as your rod bends and the fight begins. As we paddle downstream we pass local villages and watch the world go by in this remote part of Nepal. Evenings are spent camping on the sandy beaches under the stars.
At the end of the trip you can choose to spend more time in Bardia, taking in your surroundings by elephant or jeep safari, fly back or take an overnight bus back to Kathmandu. We provide all rafting gear and camping gear (except sleeping bags); all you need rto bring is your own angling equipment and enthusiasm. This is a catch and release trip.
