Bhotekoshi River Rafting

Bhotekoshi river rafting

It's a 3 hours bus ride from Kathmandu. The Bhote Kosi River is with out a doubt the most action packed short white water run in Nepal. The river drops steeply offering relentless stretches of class III-IV white water. Boulder gardens, small waterfalls, steep chutes and 90 degree bends are just some of the obstacles to be overcome. Like the Marsyangdi River , this river is not typical of the big volume water of the Himalaya, it is steep and technical and requires a reactive crew.

The fun doesn’t stop there at the end of an action packed day, relax in unspoiled surroundings on the beach.
