The Bhotekoshi river rafting is hands down the topnotch challenging whitewater rafting in Nepal. Originating in Tibet, the river makes its way into Nepal through some of the most jaw-dropping valleys ever witnessed by man. The initial point being Lamosangu Dam is a three-hour drive from Kathmandu. The serpentine Araniko highway provides a panoramic view of the snow-laden peaks like Ganesh Himal, Langtang and emerald hills. Once in the river, the time for scenery is over as the river demands your 110% attention if you are to conquer its class 4-5 rapids.
The Bhotekoshi River earns the reputation as the steepest river rafted in Nepal with continuous rapids making it a hard conquest. The rafting experience combines thrill and excitement where fear becomes joy and strangers turn into friends. The rafting takes you through the rugged terrain, breathtaking scenery and deep gorges. The Bhotekoshi river rafting trip is an ultimate thrill ride suitable for those wanting a euphoric feeling yet bounded by the constraints of time.
From Kathmandu we will drive to Khadichour which will take around 3 hours. After the professional guides brief you about safety and paddling instructions, we will get ready to start our river journey. We will hit continuous rapids of class 3. After rafting for around 16 kilometers, we will reach at a river bank and set up our camps there or go drive back to Kathmandu as per your interest.
We will start the final day of our rafting expedition driving up to Jambu, which is our second put in point. It’s going to be challenging day as we will hit a lot of rapids of class 3 and class 4+ like Barking Dog, Midnight Special and the Great Wall which aren’t run able. After an hour of rafting, we will again hit so major rapids like Liquid Bliss, Fake Right Go Left and Golden Gate and reach our take out point, i.e. the Sukute beach.
