Fishing in Budi Gandaki

Fishing in Budi Gandaki

Overview And Highlights

Located half way between Kathmandu and Pokhara, the Budhi Gandaki is a mystery river! Like the Marsyangdi, the Budhi Gandaki rises wholly in Nepal and drains the Eastern slopes of Manaslu and Ganesh Himal before flowing south through a steep - sided valley to join the Trisuli River upstream of Mugling.

Fishing here will certainly provide you a unique experience. At the same time you can observe typical Nepali villages, good mountain views and a rarely traveled and easy river. Many different varieties of fish can be seen frolicking in the water. The journey starts from Kathmandu to Arughat Bazaar and the desire to catch fish takes you to Arket Bazaar. The fishing area includes several places of Arket Bazaar, Seuli Bazaar and Arughat Bazaar. Forgetting the rest of the world you can relax and enjoy fishing here. This place is really wonderful with crystal clear water and you can go to beautiful blue water by boat where there is an opportunity to hook a variety of fishes such as mahseer, snow trout, fresh water eel, and catfishes. The high currents of the water make this adventure a memorable and challenging one. And the fish you catch here are really delicious after they are cooked. In addition to this, you can experience various cultural and traditional ethos of this small but diverse country.

After your unspoken interaction with these beautiful fish fauna you retrace your route to Arughat Bazaar and from there a picturesque drive brings you back to Kathmandu.
