We are launching a BRAND NEW trip… Yoga Rafting Expedition on the Sun Kosi, Nepal.

As many of you know, we have always had a fondness of yoga at GRG and have have an element of yoga on many of our expeditions. However, this trip is bigger, better and even more exciting than our previous trips. Rather than just having informal yoga sessions every now and then, we have hired a fully qualified Yoga Instructor to run daily yoga sessions on this trip and we will focus more on yoga than we ever have before.

Mahendra, who is a long term friend of the GRG team will be leading daily sessions of vinyasa yoga for beginner and intermediate yoga enthusiasts.

This trip, recommended by KimKim Travel, is the perfect combination of adventure and peace all in mother natures garden.

If you have an interest in yoga, rafting and being out in nature, then this is definitely the trip for you.

Find out more on our yoga rafting page. We have two dates running during 2018, but will add more throughout the year.

1st-9th October

Yoga Rafting Expedition in Nepal

Yoga & Rafting Expedition in Nepal


  • On this yoga rafting expedition in Nepal you will travel 270 km from the lush hills near the Tibetan border, down through jungle, all the way to the flat plains near the Indian border
  • Enjoy nature’s showers with epic waterfalls
  • Practice Yoga in the wild daily
  • Relax, unwind and practice mindfullness
  • Camp on white sandy beaches
  • Visit remote Hindu temples

    Take a break from your busy life and join our yoga rafting expedition in Nepal and delve into the sacred tradition of yoga and meditation whilst submerged in nature. Grab a matt and a paddle and get out into the wild, where nature is our classroom. This is our most talked about trip, and you can certainly see why it’s so popular

    People do Yoga for a number of reasons…to feel fitter, be more energetic, to be happier and peaceful and we think the river offers the perfect environment to practice it.

    This 9 day retreat combines the adrenaline of white water rafting with the peacefulness of yoga practice in the beautiful nature of Nepal. As we make our way down the Sun Kosi river, we experience all the best of adventure, relaxation and nature.

    What to expect...

    We start our days on this yoga rafting expedition in Nepal with an early sunrise yoga session that warms up the body and prepares us for a day of paddling on the beautiful river whilst immersed in the most beautiful scenery. Practicing sun salutations with the rays of the Himalayan sun on your face will awaken your body as well as your spirit. The morning is also a great time for us to practice our concentration and expansion through different yogic breathing techniques.
    In the afternoon after a day on the river we have more flexibility and heat in our bodies and can go deeper into stretches and posture in a more dynamic flow class. On a few of the  days we will paddle fewer hours/are off the river and do small workshops focusing on our alignment, breath and other aspects of yoga such as the philosophy behind and the different components of yoga.

    Who can join?

    The retreat is for beginners and intermediate practitioners who would like to explore yoga in its true natural environment.

    Imagine doing a yoga retreat on a white sandy beach with just the noise of the river in the background...
    The groups we have had on this trip before have called it their ‘best rafting expedition ever!’If you think this sounds like the trip for you, then email us now for more information.

    What an awesome trip. You couldn’t explain or put into words this wonderful experience! All the boys looked after us like family,Bimal, Santosh( mini Pez) Amir and Rupesh ( my adopted sons) kali (Roxy 1) chitra ( Roxy2) and Mahindra (yogi) yoga teacher who managed to somehow tie me into a pretzel. The rafting was not only exhilarating in the white water it was also relaxing meandering down the river whilst the local adults and children alike rushed down to the river banks to wave and say Hello. Such friendly people! Yogi our yoga instructor didn’t stop smiling, he taught an array of different yoga disciplines every morning and explained the philosophies behind them. He was extremely helpful nothing was a problem for him! Camping on white sandy beaches, sitting, dancing and singing round the camp fires with our crew and fellow travellers. We laughed from start to finish! This trip was truly enlightening. We can’t thank you all enough 😃🙏😘
