Overview

Sun Koshi river rafting/kayaking - This classic river journey is regarded as one of the top ten river journeys in the world. The ever-changing scenery contributes to making each day on the river exciting and unique. The trip begins with high mountains, open valleys, forests, and small remote villages. The final days will take you to the open plains and the bustling village of Chatara.
The first class 3 rapids encountered on the river trip provide an excellent opportunity for great teamwork to really develop. The size of the rapids increases as the Sun Kosi winds its way across the country, and it is not uncommon for villagers watching from the riverbank to lose sight of the raft in the vast waters!
The Sun Kosi river rafting/kayaking trip is ideal for those who want to combine peaceful stretches of stunning scenery, some great and challenging rapids, and the experience of a long trip where lifelong friendships can often begin.

ITINERARY

Day 01: Dolalghat – Khalte Chayenpur.  A three-hour drive from Kathmandu to the expedition starting point on the Sun Koshi River. The trip begins after the standard briefing and preparations. The river appears deceptively peaceful and lazy, and soon local villagers are encountered. Lunch is served on a beautiful sandy beach. Kooyeh Bhir was one of the rapids encountered on the first day. There are villages and temples along the way until the campsite is reached a few kilometers above the rapid Meat Grinder. While some choose to assist the crew in pitching tents, others can spend their time exploring the surroundings.  

Day 02: Khalte Chayenpur – Likhu Khola. Eat breakfast, pack your gear, and begin rolling down the river, where you will encounter the first Class III rapid, Meat Grinder. The best path to take is straight through the center, avoiding any holes on either side. A few kilometers further down, the Tama Koshi, also known as the "River of Copper," meets the Sun Koshi. There is plenty of time after lunch to explore the landscape and see different ethnic groups along the river. The second camp is located above the swift Punch and Judy. The day concludes with a campfire dinner.  

Day 03; Likhu Khola - Harkapur.  The valley here is constantly changing in width. The rapid is taken seriously by the crew at Bat Cave. The size of the rapids on this river will astound you. It is time to pause and scout before deciding on the most exciting route through. The Newars, an ethnic group, always wait to see the adventurers pass by. The water splashes across the boat as it floats down after lunch, but the waves pose no threat. A nice stretch of sandy beach is later chosen for the campsite. The monsoon floods deposit a large amount of white sand, which appears to be ideal for camping.  

Day 04: Harkapur - Rasuwa Ghat. Today, a number of small to medium-sized rapids are encountered. A long Class IV rapid known as Likhu Rapid is encountered a few kilometers below the confluence of the Likhu Khola. Soon after lunch, the ride takes you through interesting rock formations on the walls. The white water becomes more exciting, and the day concludes at a campsite near the small village of Harkapur. It is possible to visit a local tea shop and even shop for wares for a change. Camp there.  

Day 05: Rasuwa Ghat - Jungle Corridor. Sun Khosi meets Dudh Kosi about a kilometer below Harkapur, and the river widens into an arid gravel area, with the river valley stretching almost two kilometers across. Several small rapids are encountered on the afternoon run. The next stop is near Rasuwa Khola, where we camp.  

Day 06: jungle Corridor - Big Dipper.  A challenging day with many rapids to navigate. They begin with small rapids and gradually grow larger and longer. Jaws is one of these, a challenge with a massive hole at certain levels. Even the smaller ones are enjoyable, and the afternoon is full of them until you reach Rhino Rock, a Class III rapid. This is located just above the next bridge and marks the start of the "Jungle Corridor." Then it's time to stop for the night and make camp.  

Day 07: Big Dipper - Tribeni Dovan. The gorge forces the water to flow through a narrow, densely forested opening. A series of rapids, such as Cooper Chin and Black Hole, can be found along the way. Today there is an opportunity to shower under waterfalls, which is a rejuvenating experience. The scenery changes quickly as the gorge is navigated. The campsite for the night is located near a 400-foot-high waterfall. This location is a few kilometers from the Big Dipper, the last major rapid.  

Day 08: Tribeni Dovan - Chatara.  Today, everyone is anticipating the Big Dipper. This rapid is a series of standing waves with holes that can be dangerous. This must be thoroughly examined and the appropriate strategy implemented to deal with it. The waters soon calm down, and the afternoon float is enjoyable. Today, there are many sights to see, such as cremations, bamboo logging, and people being ferried across in dugouts. The Rais and Limbus, collectively known as Kirants, descendants of Kathmandu valley's ancient rulers, have a strong presence in this region. A good camping spot is at the confluence of three major rivers in eastern Nepal: the Arun, Tamur, and Sun Koshi. The river then merges with the Sapta Koshi (the Indus).  

Day 09: Chatara - Kathmandu.  The final day on the river begins with a visit to the popular Hindu temple at Barah Chhetra, just below Tribenighat, where the three rivers meet. Thousands of Hindus flock to the temple during the full moon in January. Pilgrims arrive to rejoice in Lord Vishnu's victory over a legendary Demon. The fantastic Sun Koshi river trip ends at Chatara after lunch on the beach, and the drive back begins with fond memories of the nine-day journey through gorges and challenging rapids. We leave for Kathmandu around 2 p.m.
