Trip Overview

Bhotekosi is Nepal most popular exciting grade 4 white water rafting river, just four hours drive from Kathmandu near the Tibetan border; this is definitely Nepal's wildest short river rafting trip. If you have limited time, or just the desire for an adrenaline overload, this is the river for you.

We head up towards the Tibetan border to raft two days of continuous whitewater on the main tributary of the Sunkosi. Smooth cliffs squeeze the luminous blue water between giant boulder gardens. Hard-Rock strata choke the narrow riverbed, forcing the flow down a convoluted maze of threadlike plunging passageways. Dodging down intricate routes, our rafts thrust through, often with only inches to spare in the constricted chutes. The raft bucks wildly through the foaming fury, accompanied by shrieks of approval from the crew.

There's also time to explore village around. A trip down the Bhotekosi can prove to be the weekend of a lifetime.

  • Day 1: Drive to upper Bhotekosi 95km away from Katmandu, the elevation of the start trip 1750m. Upon arrival at rafting putting point 11:00 AM; rafting to Lamosangu/drive back to starting point for the overnight camp at riverbank.
  • Day 2:  Same Section River rafting again up to Lamosangu and drive back to Kathmandu.
