Sunkoshi River Rafting

Sunkoshi River Rafting                        Sunkoshi longest river trip offered in Nepal, traversing 270 km through the beautiful Mahabharat Range on its meandering way from the put in at Dolalghat to the take out at Chatara, far down on the Gangetic Plain. It is quite an experience to begin a river trip just 3-hours out of Kathmandu, barely 60-km from the Tibet border, and end the trip looking down the hot, dusty gun barrel of the North Indian Plain just a week later.

                        The Sun Kosi starts off fairly relaxed, with class II and small class III rapids to warm up on during the first couple of days.

                        Our guides will take this opportunity to get the teams to work with exquisite precision, as on the third day the rapids become more powerful and frequent, with high water trips finding themselves astonished at just ho big a wave in a river can get. While the lower sections of large volume rivers are usually rather flat, the Sun Kosi reserves some of its biggest and best rapids for the last days. At the right flow it is an incredible combination of powerful whitewater, stunning scenery, villages, and truly quiet and introspective evenings along what many people consider to be one of the world's ten classic river journeys.
