Micro Gap Sun Koshi Rafting

Kathmandu
mix

Description

Big rapids, warm water, beautiful scenery and great camping make this one of the best rafting trips in the world. The Sun Koshi river rises near Tibet and flows eastward through Nepal to join the Ganges in India. It forms the watershed for most of eastern Nepal, gathering strength from tributaries draining the highest mountains in the World.

For the vast majority of the river there are no roads or towns, just the occasional picturesque village and friendly shouts of ‘Namaste’ from the bank. All along the river are beautiful, large white sandy beaches for camping, and the lower section is heavily forested with troops of monkeys and an abundance of birdlife.

The first few days are fairly easy and offering a gentle warm up with the ride getting progressively bouncier and exhilarating as the rapids grow in size. This classic river is truly breath taking in size, giving you real perspective of your place on earth.
