Dolpo Region is remote, rugged land of elevated open valleys, long rides, temperate forest, alpine meadows and virgin rivers was one of the kingdoms of the Khasa Mallas in the 14th. Century. The region still holds the remnants of the bygone era, and one can find sculptured temples, stone pillars and carving. Rafting down the Bheri, one of the major tributaries of the Karnali River is certainly a most exhilarating experience viewing the river Dolphins. The area has seldom been visited by westerners and the flow of water and drop of elevation is much faster and steeper than on the Trishuli and Sun Koshi rivers. The ultimate conclusion of the trip, to Karnali Tented Camp inside the Bardia National Park, is the highlight of this fascinating adventure.
