Bhote Koshi River Rafting
The Bhote Kosi is known as the River from Tibet and you can start a trip
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 beautiful for adventure trip with very steep and basically non-stop mountain river only 3 hours drives from Kathmandu offering tow days of intense and challenging river activity. You are beginning to understand what 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 of the Bhote Kosi is probably the most exciting short rafting trip in Nepal and best white water adventure in the world has been variously described as:
"Like a pin-ball Machine-and you' re the ball"
"Like being flushed down on open air toilet"
"Expedition River" etc.
With the adventure of Bhote Koshi you also get the chance to observe emerald green fields are terraced high above the river on precipitous slopes, curious villagers lining suspension bridges are amazed as we plunge through cascading waves and chutes of foam. Visiting an ancient culture, trek in the awe inspiring Himalayas and get a tan - yep the weather is sunny! We love the excitement of this trip and it really is the best available in whitewater fun. The rapids here are a solid class IV- V at high flow, and a more classic III at lower levels. This true adventure can be rafted between October and December and February and April.
