Bhotekosi River Rafting

2 Days

The Bhote Kosi, originating from the snow-capped peaks of Tibet and just a few hours’ drive northeast of Kathmandu, offers a short and sweet yet adrenaline-charged white water adventure. With steep mountain streams and big rapids, the Bhote Kosi is renowned for providing one of the best short white water voyages globally, making it an ideal destination for rafting, kayaking, canyoning, and trekking in Nepal.

This river trip is perfect for those seeking a short but exhilarating white water experience. The journey begins with class IV-V rapids, gradually mellowing into continuous streams featuring class III rapids. The Bhote Kosi not only offers thrilling rapids but also showcases the stunning character of Nepal. The scenic drive to the put-in point reveals breathtaking views of Himalayan mountain ranges, including Langtang and Dorje Lakpa, emerald fields, tea-aced hillsides, canyons, roaring waterfalls, and the shimmering waters of the Sun Kosi.

Drawing its power from the high Tibetan plateau, the Bhote Kosi tumbles into Nepal through picturesque valleys, creating a steep drop that transitions into more placid streams. The river’s rapids range from a solid class IV-V at high flow to a more classic class III at lower levels. This continuous, adventurous, and action-packed journey on the Bhote Kosi promises a ride of a lifetime, providing an unforgettable experience for both family raft trips and regular kayak clinics on the lower river sections. It’s an ideal place to learn and experience the thrill of kayaking in the Himalayas.
