Trip Overview

Bhote Koshi river rafting is a short adventure trip of 2 days, ideal for those seeking a short adventure-filled rafting experience in Nepal. The Bhote Kosi River is a 4-hours drive to the northeast of Kathmandu through the Araniko Highway. We generally make it into the river from Lamosanghu and follow the river down for a stretch of about 25 kilometers. The Bhote Koshi is one of the fastest flowing rivers in Nepal. The Bhote Koshi originates in the Tibet plateau, flows up to the south, and finally joins with the Sun Koshi river.

In this standard two-day itinerary, we reach the river at the put-in point on the first day. Soon after a short briefing, we engage in rafting for about ten kilometers and return to a resort/tent camp to spend the night. The following day, our starting point will be the same, but we run the full course of 25 kilometers. And finally, emerge out of the river in Dolalghat Bazaar. After lunch at Dolalghat, we retrace our drive back to Kathmandu.

This River Rafting trip is a perfect short river trip for those seeking a whitewater adventure in Nepal. While rafting, you can also see the panoramic view of mountains, green hills, and riverside settlements. Besides gentle and constant grade III rapids, we experience more wild and huge grade IV-V rapids too. This Bhote Koshi rafting trip is one of the best whitewater rafting adventures and the best short rafting trip in Nepal.

EDhan (America)

My Name is EDhan from California, America. I am a retired management consultant. Basically, this visit to Nepal exceeded my expectations. We came here through Tibet and Bhutan. Here in Nepal, I like the neighbourhood and friendly people. My wife every day used to go for morning walk and used to tell me the story about the local people, whatever she sees every day. Especially, the guide was most knowledgeable and made it possible and get a sense of not only historical and religious value of some of the places but also some of the other places how the people live over there day to day.

The company was able to manage all the services smoothly and made the memorable trip in Kathmandu. Do not be afraid of Earthquake; the government has done very good job, lots of cleaning up and reconstructions are going on. There are many places to go without facing any problems. Feel free to make a trip to Nepal nothing to afraid of and you will feel the completely different and unique. Thanks to Sixth Sixth and an entire team making an incredible trip in Nepal and I will come back next time.

Hi, My Name is Margo Boston, America. We were planning the trip to visit Nepal Bhutan and Tibet through our local agency. In the beginning, we asked so many questions about safety, especially after the earthquake but we realised that after visiting Nepal it is completely safe & worthful to visit.

We are very glad to see the beautiful country. Everything was perfect and great to see the Hinduism and Buddhism and combinations of religious and cultural aspects in the tiny little city. The trip plan, all the staff activity including cultural show was great.
