Sunkoshi River Rafting - 10 Days

Amazingly, this river prepares the rafters for the big rapids by first introducing them to milder Class II and Class III rapids. Sunkoshi River rafting gets progressively challenging from day to day, leading to some exciting rides through high water. There are also sections for relaxing during scenic floats and a remarkable jungle corridor.Sunkoshi River rafting is One of the camping spots is at an interesting confluence of three of the major rivers of eastern Nepal. Arun, Tamur and Sun Koshi. The trip ends at Chatara and the drive back begins.

The Sun Koshi (Upper) is the ideal river for novices as it has no big, challenging rapids. During the Sunkoshi River rafting surrounding scenery is beautiful and the trip is relaxing with mountain views to admire. The river run is a short half- day of rafting through forested valleys and white sandy beaches. Combining an overnight stay at Dhulikhel, rafters can enjoy superb views of the Himalayas and a stunning sunrise the next morning before heading out to the river.

The put-in point for this Sun Koshi trip is at Balefi Bazaar. As the trip begins, rafters immediately face Class I rapids. But this is a really relaxing run with plenty of time to take in the surrounding landscapes. With so much greenery around, there are sighting of wildlife such as monkeys, mongoose and deer. After a pleasant ride down the river, the trip ends at Dolalghat, the put-out point.
