Trip Details

The Sun Koshi River is one of the ten best river expeditions in the world. It is also one of the longest rivers in Nepal. The river starts from the Tibetan border, falls down the Himalayas, and runs to the River Ganges in India. This river offers a massive volume of white and warm water for rafting. A run in this mighty river amazes any rafters with beautiful ingredients of canyons, majestic waterfalls, caves, temples, white sandy beaches, and great intensity of white water rapids.
The Sun Koshi River means the River of Gold. It got the name since the locals used to pan the gold from the sediments of river banks, or it may also refer to the orange colour of the river during the monsoon season due to alluvial silt. It is the best option for a multi-day white water adventure due to the large volume of pool/drop River. Most of the rapids in the river depend upon the harshness of the monsoon season. The severity of the monsoon often creates rapids and creates Meat Grinder (Class IV-), Judy (Class III), Pre-anxiety (Class III), Punch (Class IV-), and High Anxiety (Class IV-), and several new rapids. River welcomes the rafters with easy and smooth Class II/III rapid during the initial days of rafting. These experiences will prepare the rafters for the numerous rapids in the next few days. Along the way, many rivers join with the Sunkoshi River, which swells up the river and forms a few of the world-famous rapids. One can enjoy the scenic beauty of different villages and Hindu temples, making the journey remarkable.
