Days: 2 / Difficulty: 4 of 5 (Strenuous)
The Bhotekoshi is known as the River from Tibet and you can start a trip after a peak over the border into Tibet. The Kathmandu/Lhasa Highway (AKA Friendship Highway, Arniko Highway) runs along the river.
You can run a day trip or do a two-day expedition and run parts of the river twice. It's a great beginner river for rafters and fun for kayakers at all levels.
Bhote Koshi is this beautiful, very steep, non stop mountain river, perfect for adventure trips and easy to reach. Only 3 hours from Kathmandu, it offers two days of intense and challenging river activity. You are beginning to understand what this great trip in Nepal offers you, nothing less than the ride of a lifetime. If you have never rafted before, and if you have limited time, then this is a perfect introductory trip package for you. Because the Bhote Koshi is probably the most exciting short rafting trip in Nepal and best whitewater adventure in the world. Like getting pure adrenalin shots…People have been variously describing it as:
"Like a pin-ball Machine-and you' re the ball!"
"Like being flushed down on open air toilet!"
"Expedition River" etc.
With the adventure of Bhote Koshi you also get the chance to observe emerald green fields, they 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. Yep, the weather is sunny! We love the excitement of this trip and it is really the best available fun in whitewater. The rapids here are a solid class IV- V at high flow, and a more classic III at lower levels. This true adventure can be rafted between October and December and February and April.
