All about the Rafting in Nepal – Bhotekoshi River.

Bhote Koshi River tumbles down from the Zhang Zanbo glacier in Tibet all the way down to Nepal. Bhote Koshi is the steepest river in Nepal. It has many class 5 rapids along its path making it not suitable for everyone but a very rewarding trip for familiar rafters or seasoned veterans.

The river runs in between densely vegetated steep and narrow cliffs and many settlements beside the riverbanks.

This two-day rafting trip starts with a short drive from Kathmandu to Sukute. Here, you will spend the night and begin rafting along the Bhote Koshi River the next day. There will be instructions, tips, and safety measures that will be relayed to you by a head instructor.

The rapids come in periodic between short intervals meaning there is only a little time for you to admire the surrounding view, while the rest of the time you are focused on channeling your adrenaline. The trip will end with your driving back to Kathmandu.

Eternal Himalaya arranges your trip with experienced and license holding instructors, who are well versed in the Rivers and its secrets. Rest assured and focus on the paddling!

We were first time rafters (hence we were hesitant at first) and took a chance doing the 2 day Bhote Koshi river rafting trip. We all agreed it was one of the best decisions of our trip! The eternal himalaya team was super organised, professional, friendly and helpful, making for an unbelievable experience. This was such a thrilling activity and something I'll definitely do again when I come back - will definitely organise through these guys again too.
