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.
