  • Included meals ( Breakfast + Lunch + Dinner )
day 2

Here people of the ethnic group Newars and others always wait to see the adventurers pass by cause to see people raft is also a kinda thrill.

Trip Information

How your Journey will Start Towards SunKoshi 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.

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.

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.
