Bhote Koshi river rafting is probably the most exciting short rafting trip in Nepal. It offers fun, challenges, and non-stop action.

Bhote Koshi is the main branch of Sun Koshi river and is a steep mountain river only a few hours drive from Kathmandu. Rafting on the Bhote Koshi offers one or two days of intense and challenging river activity. The valley is impressively narrow with steep hillsides shooting up over 2000m from the river. The river drops steeply away and is as dramatic as the scenery.

This river is best for white water rafting in autumn. However this river is better for white water rafting most of the year than any other river.
