Sunkoshi River Rafting – 10 Days

  • Rafting


Sunkoshi means “River of gold” perhaps named after the gold, that is found from the river gravel or alternatively it refers to the orange color of the water in the monsoon when it is thick with flood.
Sunkoshi river rafting starts from Dolalghat and ends at Chatara. Dolalghat is 3 hours drive from Kathmandu to the east. Among many advantages of a long river trip, it is a pleasant diversity of things within a short span of time with a chance to see different species of flora and fauna available around the basin. It is a 4-5 graded and challenging Wild River in east Nepal. Tour not recommended in the months February to April. There are dozens of adrenaline pumping big rapids and miles of calm water to reflect on this beautiful area with scenery. There is not any road and town between starting and ending point.
