Rafting in Bhote Koshi River
Bhote Koshi is another river for adventure rafting with very steep and basically non-stop mountain watercourse only 3 hours drive from Kathmandu. If you have never rafted before and if you have limited time but desire an adrenaline overload, then this might be a perfect introductory trip package for you because Bhote Koshi is probably the most exciting short rafting trip in Nepal and best white water adventure in the world has been variously described as:”Like a pinball Machine and you’re the ball”; “Like being flushed down on open air toilet- Bhote koshi River Rafting”; “Expedition River” etc. With the adventure of Bhote Koshi you also get the chance to observe emerald green fields are terraced high above the river on precipitous slopes, curious villagers lining suspension bridges are amazed as we plunge through cascading waves and chutes of foam. The rapids here are a solid class 4- 5 at high flow, and a more classic 3 at lower levels.
This true adventure in Bhote Koshi can be rafted between October -December, and February – April.
