Bhote koshi River Rafting

The Bhote Kosi is known as the River from Tibet and you can start Bhote Koshi River Rafting after a peak over the border into Tibet. The Kathmandu / Lhasa Highway (AKA Friendship Highway, Arniko Highway) runs along beside the river. You can run a day trip or do a two-day expedition and run parts of the river twice. It's a great beginner river for rafters and fun for kayakers at all levels.  Bhote Koshi is the most beautiful for an adventure trip with a very steep and basically non-stop mountain river!. Bhote Koshi River Rafting only 3 hours drive from Kathmandu, offering two days of intense and challenging river activity. You are beginning to understand that this great trip in Nepal offers you nothing less than the ride of a lifetime. If you have never rafted before and if you have limited time but desire an adrenaline overload, then this is a perfect introductory trip package for you because the Bhote Kosi is probably the most exciting short rafting trip in Nepal and the best white water adventure in the world.

Day 1: 
We take a trip to 95 km east from Kathmandu to the starting point, Lomosangu-Dam. This is a spectacular drive through villages and if weather permits, you will have fantastic mountain views i.e. Ganesh Himal, Langtang etc, we raft the first 10 km of the MOST exciting stretch of the river and then return to the start to play again over the same stretch the next day rather than continue with only half a day paddling to the end. Drives back to our camp.
 
Day 2:
After breakfast a quick pack up and set out (approx. 9 to 10 a.m.) run white water hitting against class 3 rapids starting from the upper section. You have the second chance to show how your raft team can work well together in challenging rapids. We have lunch on the river and continue the action until the take out point at Dolalghat Bazaar about 2 to 3 p.m. and bus back to Kathmandu. Our trip is over here.
