Sunkoshi River Rafting

Sun Koshi is one of the ten most benevolent white water rafting rivers in the world, originates near Mt. Sisapangma and flows 270 km. down the eastwards through the great Mahabharat-lekh range. The further we raft down, the river becomes bigger after the confluence with its numerous tributaries encompassing Dudhkoshi from the Mt. Everest, Arun, Tamur etc.

Day 1: Kathmandu- Balephi, the raft put in point (3hrs driving), Lunch, equipment packed and be ready to listen some important safety and paddling briefing by guides. Immediately, the action starts- paddle forward and harder. The three class rapids will be exercise for the learner rafters. The area is scenic and panoramic. Camp set at Dolalghat. Enjoy the Dinner and camp fire.
Day 2: After having Breakfast we paddle down to encounter with challenge of “Meatgrinder” i.e. IV+ rapids. A few meters below here the Tamakodhi joins Sunkoshi on the left with a beach on the confluence. There is another beautiful Shive Temple, where the local pilgrims come worship every morning.
Day 3: Until the confluence with the Likhu Khola, we have short easy rafting and rapids are only iii class. Thereafter, very soon we face the iv+ rapid “High Anxitiety” with a large hole on the left highway down and series of holes at the bottom.
Day 4: After facing a several 3+rapids, we stop for a while to buy some necessary provisions. Be ready to paddle faster because … … … we encounter with challenge of v class rapids “Harkapur 2” and “Harkapur 3”, the hardest and biggest in this trip, which should be carefully scouted.
Day 5: After the confluence with the Dudhkoshi river from Mt. Everest, the river becomes wide in size. But very soon we meet the “Jaws”, iv rapid.
Day 6: It is the hard day as will encounter with V class rapids “Rhino Rocks” and “Jungle Corridor” and a few continuous white water. Waterfalls cascade on both sides of the river. One water fall makes great spot for a team shower.
Day 7: Rest and Relax day
Day 8: Great waves not big rapid so you can ask our kayakers to instruct you about how to roll.
Day 9: Facing the last rapid of trip “Bigdipper” is a series of huge standing waves. A few KM down we meet Arun and Tamur from the river as Saptakoshi(Seven Rivers) and we will have numerous waves and whirlpools. For a short time we go to visit Barahi temple in order to pick a so-looked small rock. We finish our trip at Chatara and then drive back to Kathmandu.
