About the Trip

Bhote Koshi River Rafting is adventurous for whitewater adventure which is a very challenging river for rafting and kayaking. The main branch of Sun Koshi River which flows from Tibet is easily accessed from Kathmandu & Pokhara. Bhote Koshi River Rafting is full of exciting gorges between the mountain valleys, springs, Hills, etc. These gorges are dramatically adventurous and rapids are challenging with big bounces current of the river. Discovery World Trekking has been selecting Bhote Koshi River as challenging and enjoyable adventure sports in Nepal.


The Bhote Kosi is the steepest river rafted in Nepal. With a gradient of 15m per kilometre, it is a full eight times as steep as the Sun Kosi, which it feeds further downstream. The river carves a steep and direct drop at the top that gradually eases to more placid streams and the calmer pools with a 46-km run at the Lamosunga dam. The rapids here are class I4-5 at high flow, and 3 at lower levels. The Bhote Kosi is used for both rafting and kayaking. The river is steep and continuous with one rapid leading into another. It takes you about 3 hours driving from Kathmandu by private vehicle to the start point at Bhote Koshi River. It’s an exciting and tough river but makes for the best 2 days rafting.

Bhotekoshi River is not so away from Kathmandu therefore easily accessed driving through highway by Private Car/Jeep. It is at the distance of 3 hours drive through Araniko Highway to Lamosangu. The highway is with numerous bents and natural scenarios which will definitely amaze you every time you look out of the window. Bhote Koshi is itself very challenging river as the roadway view provides while travelling to access point of rafting. The upper Bhote Koshi ends at Barabise and the Lower Bhote Koshi starts at Lamosangu Dam. Rafting put-in – the point is at Lamosangu. Rafting adventure in this river is challenging because of the big water flow current in the river. Expert rafters can handle some rapids which are breathe stopping and hair straightening while rafting.

Trip Information

How your Journey will Start Towards Bhote Koshi River Rafting

You will arrive in Nepal, Kathmandu at Tribhuwan International Airport as that is the only international airport. An overnight stay in a hotel in Kathmandu is required upon the arrival. The next day we will be travelling to our destination via bus or a local jeep.

Don't Worry Transportation Is Included In Package

We provide free airport pickup and drop by private vehicle. Upon arrival, you’ll be warmly welcomed by our Discovery world trekking crew with a traditional offering of Khada or marigolds garland (symbolizing purity, goodwill, auspiciousness and compassion), then directly transfer you to your hotel. To make use of this service please submit full flight details of arrival and departure in advance by mail.

Money exchange

You can exchange most foreign currencies through the banks and through the money exchanges. Money exchangers are also legitimate. You might be able to also exchange small amounts of cash at the hotel you are staying. Money exchange facilities are available in Kathmandu. Money changers or Money exchangers in Kathmandu are found all over Thamel. The going rate is normally displayed in the front of the stores on a board. The official currency of Nepal is the Nepali Rupee (NRP). Its symbol is often displayed as Rs. The government of Nepal has banned the import, export and use of 500 and 1000 Indian Rupees in Nepal. You should ensure you are not carrying these notes on arrival in Nepal as they will be confiscated and you may be fined. Despite having the security advantage of traveller’s cheque, many hassles problems like a lengthy process and high rate of commission may take place during the processing at banks. You can withdraw cash (in Rupees only) from one of many ATMs in Kathmandu (if you card is linked to the International Cirrus System), or by exchanging your travel cash at a bank in Kathmandu, the service fee charge will impose on around four percent or more depending up on the bank. There is a day transaction limit on cash withdrawing if you use the bank. Please note that most establishment banks in Asia will not accept foreign currency notes that are old, torn or faded and they can be very difficult to exchange or extra fees added when exchanging at banks. Please ensure that you have new, clean notes.

Safety During Rafting

Discovery World Trekking guarantees our client’s safety, security and satisfaction. Safety is the utmost important concern for us. For the rafting, we will be carrying all the necessary gears, types of equipment and first aid kits for any worst-case scenario. Our leaders and guides have vast knowledge and have extensive first aid training. If a rafter feels uneasy due to the current of the river, it is entirely up to the leader to decide if he/she will further continue as health is very important. During the rafting, every group will be together so that everyone is safe and won't wander off alone.
