Sunkoshi River Rafting


    SunKoshi is one of the ten most benevolent white water rafting rivers in the world, originates near Mt. Sisapangma and flows 270 km. down the eastwards through the great Mahabharat range. The further we raft down; the river becomes bigger after the confluence with its numerous tributaries encompassing Dudhkoshi from the Mt. Everest, Arun, Tamur etc. The area is so remote so that we always have relied on our supplies and gears. As its having huge volume of water, the rapids (3-5 class) are so big that the raft will disappear from the sight of those standing on the shore!
