    What is the best season?

    As always, Trekking Planner Nepal mention the finest months to go rafting on the Bhote Koshi River are September to December and March to May. The weather is often favorable throughout these months, and the water levels are ideal for rafting.

    The monsoon season finishes in September and December, and the water levels are high, providing for a thrilling and dangerous rafting experience. The temperature is pleasant and comfortable at this time of year, with clear skies and little humidity.

    The temperature is warmer and the water levels are lower from March to May than during the summer monsoon. This means the rapids are significantly less powerful, making it ideal for novices or those looking for a less strenuous rafting experience.

    The Bhote Koshi River Rafting excursion is not suggested during the monsoon season, which runs from June to August, since the water levels are quite high and the rapids can be deadly. Also, the water is particularly cold throughout the winter months of December to February, making rafting impossible without adequate equipment and preparation.
