Overview

Rafting on the Sunkoshi River will be very exciting indeed, as we can view the fascinating scenery as the water passes through the beautiful gorges. The River is referred to as the “river of gold” for a reason. Through the Mahabharata Range Mountains, the River flows from the Himalayas to eastwards in Nepal through the great valley. The River fulfills the significant demand for water in many parts of eastern Nepal through its tributaries.

Sunkoshi River rafting is one of the most benign activities in the world. With each increase in distance, the rafting becomes bigger and bigger. Our rafts will take us further down the Sunkoshi River, which becomes bigger after it confluences with numerous tributaries. Getting to the Sunkoshi River will be both interesting and tiring since we have to trek through remote regions and stay at tented camps for several nights, but you can expect the interesting parts to be visible while hiking and enjoy them to the fullest.

On our way to the Ratemate, we will take the river raft to cross three rapids and then spend the night at a campsite near Dolalghat. The rafting towards the Ratemate will be exciting, crossing three rapids.

We may enjoy the stunning scenery while overcoming the hardships of the rushing River as we raft from Ratemate to Harkapur. At Harkapur, we will spend the night in a tent camp after rafting for perhaps 4 to 5 hours.

Our two-day rafting trip begins from Harkapur. We will raft for four hours following the flow of the River and then sleep at the tented camp the next night. We will enjoy the evening at the tent camp along with a bonfire if you wish for a relaxing evening.

Following the previous day, we will continue our rafting through the fast-flowing River for another four hours until we reach Rasuaghat. We will spend our night in a tented camp.

We will raft from Rasuaghat, following the flow of the River and challenging any obstacles that we encounter. Rafting is thrilling, challenging, and river-based. There will be about four rapids on our rafting expedition. On the sand along the Sunkoshi River, we'll set up camp in a tent for the night.

After breakfast, we will resume our rafting trip on the second morning. During the rafting trip, we will challenge the river flow to reach the destination of today. We will raft through the big dipper and will rest at the tented camp at the sand beach of the River for the night.

The rafting trip to the Chatara will take only about two hours today, and you will spend the rest of the time visiting and exploring the region. We will spend our night sleeping at the Chatara after spending the day rafting and exploring the surrounding areas during the leisure time we have.

About Tamakoshi

In the vicinity of 7181m, the glaciers of Mount Gaurishankar feed the Tse Rolpa Lake, from which the Tamakoshi River originates.

The Tamakoshi River (Copper River) holds a volume almost double that of Bhote Koshi, which makes it an extremely challenging river to raft on. It is generally considered rafting only for those who have a good understanding of the technicalities of sturdy water.

This river is considered dangerous as it is far from the main trekking routes and away from the main trekking routes, but it is still a challenging whitewater challenge.

Trishuli Rafting

Visitors to Nepal often want to go rafting because of the rivers that originate from the high mountains and flow with the great currents. These rivers are some of the best rafting rivers in the world. Located just three hours away from Kathmandu, the Trishuli River is one of Nepal’s most popular places to raft. Its scenic beauty and the best rafting experience make Trishuli rafting one of Nepal’s most popular rafting rivers.

It will be fun and equally thrilling to raft on the Trishuli River with the views of the gorgeous forest, gorgeous surroundings, wildlife, and the white water. The huge waves and the striking waters of the river will be an unforgettable experience for you and your friends. During the monsoon season, the water flow will be fast at the river, so the rafting experience at the river will vary from season to season. The flow of the water at the river will directly relate to the season and rainfall.

Overview of the Trishuli Rafting

On the Trishuli River overnight rafting trip, we will set up our camps at the banks of the river. Riding rafts on different rivers in Nepal will be quite a fun experience. We will raft the Trishuli River for several hours, and then we will travel back to Kathmandu on the main road to Kathmandu, or we can make our way towards Chitwan, viewing the picturesque surroundings. However, it is totally up to you whether you wish to travel back to Kathmandu or head on to enjoy the Kaligandaki rafting via Pokhara subsequently or even visit Chitwan, as mentioned earlier.

On the next day, we will struggle with the challenging water flow on the Trishuli River. After an hour of rafting, we will reach Mugling. Once we've had our fill of rafting, we will return to Kathmandu, depending on the package you choose, on the same trail for several hours. 

Kali Gandaki Rafting

Due to the fast-moving water and the magnificent scenery, rafting on the Kali Gandaki River is one of Nepal’s most exciting rafting experiences. In this context, rafting on the Kaligandaki River is also exciting from the point of view of sightseeing because we will be able to see the magnificent Mt. Dhaulagiri and Mt. Annapurna. You can reach this after a drive of about 3 hours from Pokhara.

As we trek along the beautiful river at Kaligandaki, we’ll be able to view the high mountains like Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Himalchuli, etc. As we trek to the Kali Gandaki River, we will pass through remote regions, changing the trek to an extended or short trek. In addition to passing through deep gorges, this beautiful river will also pass through glorious waterfalls, jungles, and the traditional and cultural villages and localities of Magar and Chhetri. Rafting on the Kaligandaki River is a bit risky, though. Rafters thus have to carry several things to ensure their safety, but Pokhara Info is always vigilant for their safety.

Overview of the Kali Gandaki Rating Tour

Rafting on the Kaligandaki River will be an exciting experience right from the beginning as we enter the fast-flowing waves of the river. There are several grades of rafting on the Kaligandaki River. A grade of III or IV is generally given to the rafting on the Kaligandaki River because there are lots of black stones on the river. We can spend several days exploring the Kali Gandaki River to learn more about the region.

All in all, Pokhara Info’s crew members will make rafting on the Kali Gandaki River an adventure as well as safe.

In the morning, we will have breakfast at the tented camp before beginning our rafting trip to the Modi Khola.

Having rafted all day on the river, we will retire to a tented camp at Purti Ghat for the night.

The final day of rafting at the Kaligandaki River will be from Purti Ghat. After breakfast and rafting the river for several hours, we will walk through the villages of the areas settled by different groups of people following their own culture and traditions before returning to Pokhara. We conclude the trip as we return back to Pokhara, where we will spend the night.
