The Bhote Kosi is used for both rafting and kayaking. It is the steepest river rafting in Nepal, with a gradient of 15 m per km.Bungee jumping or swinging over the Bhote Kosi has been described as the ‘ultimate experience’.
The river carves a steep and direct drop at the top that gradually eases to more placid streams and calmer pools with a 46-km run at the Lamosunga dam. The rapids are class IV-V at high flow, and III at lower levels. The river is steep and continuous with one rapid leading into another.If you have limited time and need a feeling of an adrenaline rush, rafting at BhoteKoshi (also translated as the river from Tibet) is the perfect one for you. The Araniko Highway resides along this river making an easy transport way to Lhasa from Kathmandu. Even looking at the river with rapids of class 3, 4 and 4+ rushes your blood and gives you an adrenaline rush.
The put in point of this rafting trip is the lower part of Khadichaur, which is a 3 hour drive from Kathmandu, and the take out point is the Sukute Beach but the put in point changes during the monsoon season. The rafting journey is suitable throughout the year but you can gain a much better experience from September to October.If you are looking for a thrilling white water experience within a limited time, this rafting expedition is just the right one for you.
