Bhote Koshi River Rafting

Bhote Koshi Rafting

Bhote Koshi River is with out a doubt the most action packed short white water run in Nepal. The river drops steeply offering relentless stretches from class III-IV levels of rapids. Boulder gardens, small waterfalls, steep chutes and 90 degree bends are some of the obstacles to be overcome. This river is not typical big river flowing from the Himalayan but it is a steep and technical river which requires a reactive crew. After a fun filled action packed day, relax in unspoiled surroundings on the beach.

The river flows through a beautiful narrow canyon with lush green vegetation and waterfalls coming in from the steep stone walls. At the bottom of this stretch is a rapid called ExLax. It takes you about 3 hours driving from Kathmandu either by bus or private vehicles reach at Bhote Koshi River. It is exciting and bit tough river for the best 2 days rafting.

River Bhote Kosi: meaning - 'The harmony of Tibet and the Himalayas' (1 to 2 days)

Season Grading Water Volume
September - December 5- Approx.100 - 50 cumecs
January - May 4+ Approx. 40 cumecs
June - August Lower section only 4+ Approx 180 cumecs
