The Sun Koshi the longest river trip offered in Nepal around 270 kms. The river flows through the beautiful Mahabharata Range on its meandering way from the put-in point at Dolalghat to the take-out point at Chatara, way down on the Gangetic Plain near the border with India. The trip begins just 3 hours out of Kathmandu, only sixty kms from the Tibet border, and ends looking down on the North Indian plain just a week later.
The first couple of days on the river fairly relaxed with class II and small class III rapids just to warm you up. This is an ideal time to get some cohesion as a group and the river guides take this opportunity to get the teams to work with exquisite precision for what is to come!.On the third day, the rapids become more powerful and frequent with high water trips. Many lower sections of large volume rivers are usually rather flat, not the Sun Koshi, some of its biggest and best rapids are saved for the last days. A trip on this fantastic river it is a combination of powerful whitewater, stunning scenery, villages and truly quiet and introspective evenings along what many people consider to be one of the world’s ten classic river journeys.
