I did a half-day Trisuli Rafting trip with this company “Gold Mountain Nepal Treks & Expedition Pvt Ltd” on April-2015 & was very interesting. Round trip transportation from Kathmandu, a meals & guided rafting was managed by Mr Bishnu (MD of the company). The cost which was provided to me was also reasonable. The rafting guide focuses on safety and professionalism.
