The Trishuli is a trans-boundary river that originates in Tibet and flows into Bihar, India as Narayani River — one of the major tributaries of the Ganges. It is the lifeline of Nepal's central region, and is one of the most exploited river basins in Nepal. The river is well known for white water rafting, but is currently threatened by hydropower dam development and encroachment.
