The Bhote Koshi means Tibetan River and actually this River originates in the plateau of Tibet. Tibet. Kathmandu-Lhasa highway follows the bank of Bhote Koshi River. You can run a day trip or do a two-day expedition and run parts of the river twice. It’s a great beginner river for rafters and fun for kayakers at all levels.
It has upper sections of grade 5+ but most of commercially rafted sections are an overall grade of 4 with a couple or so harder rapids that warrant a 4+ or 5-. Bhote Koshi is the beautiful for adventure trip with very steep and basically non-stop mountain river only 3 hours drives from Kathmandu offering two days of intense and challenging river activity. You are beginning to understand what this great trip in Nepal offers you nothing less than the ride of a lifetime.
If you have never rafted before and if you have limited time but desire an adrenaline overload, then this is a perfect introductory trip package for you because of the Bhote Koshi is probably the most exciting short rafting trip in Nepal and best white water adventure in the world.
95 km. east from Kathmandu is the starting point Lomosangu- Dam of the trip. We raft the first 10 km of the MOST exciting stretch of the river and then return to the start to play again the same stretch the next day rather than continue with only half a day paddling to the end. Drives back to our camp.
Run white water hit again a class 3 rapid starting from upper section. We have lunch on the river and continue the action until the take out point Dolalghat Bazaar about 2 to 3 p.m. and bus back to Kathmandu.
