Upper Sunkoshi River Rafting

Upper Sunkoshi River RaftingA clean, blue, scenic river only a few hours drive from Kathmandu. The upper part of the famous Sun Koshi river can offer you some amazing trips during the monsoon time with continuous class 4+ white water.

The valley is surprisingly scenic with well -wooded sides and a wide blue river winding between white beaches. The valley is followed by the Arniko highway (road to Lhasa) but the road traffic is usually light and not intrusive.

Rafting: At its best in medium to high water flows and not recommended during the low-water season.

Kayaking: Lots of bouldery rapids with a not too pushy current, make it a perfect warm up for the Bhote Koshi or a place to build confidence for the intermediate kayaker. Eddy lines are well defined and there are good play waves and Endo spots for practicing technique and posing for the photographer.
