We offer 2-day rafting expedition in the Bhote Koshi River for both domestic and international rafters; Bhote Koshi River rafting is one of the amazing trips we have in Nepal. The short and adventure trip starts from Kathmandu with a scenic 3 hours drive to the east part of Nepal. The drive following the Arniko highway which is the main trade highway to Tibet as well takes us to the wonderful Bhote Koshi River.

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 the Bhote Kosi is probably the most exciting short rafting trip in Nepal and the 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 the open-air toilet

Expedition River etc.

With the adventure of Bhote Koshi you also get the chance to observe emerald green fields 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.
