Bhote Koshi River Rafting

The Bhote Kosi – the name implies that this river has its origin in Bhot or Tibet. It has upper sections of grade 5 and 6. Most of the commercially rafted section is from much lower down and has an overall grade of 4 with a couple or so harder rapids that warrant a 4+ or 5-.

It is so near from Kathmandu that you can be on the river the same day as you leave Kathmandu. In fact, this is the only river with such gradients.

Transportation to the river the bus journey from Kathmandu takes 3-4 hours and rises up out of the valley and drops down into the Sun Kosi valley near Dolalghat (the Sun Kosi put-in). From here the valley is followed upstream and is still called the Sun Kosi. Close to Bahrabise the Sun Kosi turns east and the Bhote Kosi goes north. Close to the 95km marker the river can be accessed a run. Further upstream the grades increase and they say that if you don’t get scared, just keep going upstream and eventually you will!
