River Expedition in Nepal

River ExpeditionRafting in Sunkoshi take you into Nepal’s most remote areas often they begin with short treks to the river. On these treks we employ local porters to carry our gear and supplies, so all you need to carry are your own personal belongings.

Many of our long trips finish close to some of our less easily accessible National Parks and Wildlife Reserves (the Karnali trip actually finishes in the Bardia National Park). So you may wish to combine your rafting trip with a safari adventure and go in search of our native tigers, bears and rhinos!

Sunkoshi River: The river of gold - Mt. Everest region (9 and 11 days)

Sunkoshi is famous in rafting circles for being one of the 10 most exciting white water rivers in the world (class 3 to 5). This golden adventure takes us down along immense mountain scenery and small remote villages, where the local people can be seen immersed in their daily rural activities. An experience of a life time, especially at high flows! This is when the rapids can flow to twice the size of the Grand Canyon and rafts can often disappear from the sight of those standing on the shore!
