Package Details

Rafting on the Bhote Koshi River is one of the newest rivers and represents the cutting edge of rafting. The Bhote Koshi River flows about 70 kilometers east of Kathmandu and is fed by snow from the Himalayas. Rafting on the Bhote Koshi River is always a popular activity due to the speed of the adventure and the thrill of rafting. Rafting on the Bhote Koshi River is an exciting and challenging white-water adventure. The Bhote Koshi River is popular among experienced adventure and extreme rafting enthusiasts for rafting in Nepal. It's more daring because of the big bounces and the daring throat. The river has very steep and basically non-stop flow characteristics.

Rafting on the Bhote Koshi provides numerous photographic opportunities as well as the opportunity to visit unexplored archaeological sites and abandoned areas. The river drops sharply and offers long stretches of class III IV rapids. Pebble gardens, small waterfalls, inclined channels, and 90-degree curves are just a few of the obstacles to keep you entertained while rafting. Rafting in Bhote Koshi will also allow you to see emerald green fields on terraces over the river on steep slopes, as well as curious villagers. Rafting in Bhote Koshi may be the best trip for you if you have never done rafting before and have limited time but want an adrenaline rush. The upper section for kayak experts or extreme rafting enthusiasts is also well-deserved. This is also the only river in Nepal where the sport of bungy jumping is practiced, and the second most well-known in the world after Switzerland.
