Sunkoshi River Rafting

Trip Overview

The Sun Kosi is considered one of the top ten whitewater trips in the world and is a must do for the veteran rafter looking for the experience of a lifetime. However it is also perfect for first timers looking for an exciting thrill ride. Sun Kosi literally means River of Gold and this mighty trip holds its true riches for anyone willing to give it the time. We begin this trip at Dolalghat, a short three hour bus ride from Kathmandu. Here you can wave goodbye to any roads or towns because it is just big rapids, warm water, beautiful scenery and sandy beaches for the next 8 to 10 days. The rapids on this river increase in difficulty as the days go on so there is plenty of time to warm up and get acquainted with your rafting team. The character of these rapids are pool-drop; with a big rapid followed by a large slow moving section of water at the bottom. Because of this running even the biggest rapids is safe because any swimmers or gear can be easily collected at the bottom. After a long day of rafting let our guides pamper you with a cup of tea and biscuit while you lounge on the pristine white sand beaches and take in the surroundings. You deserve it. We will prepare your appetizing evening meal while you sit by the fire and read or go for a stroll; and best of all we are on clean-up duty as well. At the end of the trip you will be amazed at how much your rafting skill has increased and begging to continue.
