The Sunkoshi River Rafting is one of the longest River Rafting in Nepal. This multiday Sunkoshi River Rafting adventure is the adventure of a lifetime. Because the mountains are much bigger in Nepal, so to are the rivers. You will be surprised how far these rapids take us in 10 days. During the 10 days on the raft, experience class 3-5 rapids.  The class 5 rapids will certainly get your adrenaline pumping, but there is no knowledge of rafting that is necessary to experience this wonderful excursion. All you need is a spirit of adventure and a desire to have some fun!

Sometimes referred to as the Gold River, the Sunkoshi originates from Tibet’s Zhangzangbo Glacier. When the Sunkoshi river reaches Dolalghat, it heads south and eastward, eventually joining other rivers to cross the Mahabharat range and before finally arriving at the Gangetic Plains.

Sunkoshi River Rafting is an adventure span from near the northern border of Nepal all the way to the south – the Terai region. We embark on our journey in Dolalghat, northeast of Kathmandu, after a scenic drive on the highway that connects Kathmandu to Tibet. The Sunkoshi river plummets down the tallest mountains in the world before reaching Dolalghat. We hop in the raft and start our float.

Sunkoshi river carves through dense jungle-like forests and passes villages surrounded by terraced hillsides. We raft about 5 of 6 hours each day before setting up our camp on the banks of the Sunkoshi River. Relax around the campfire and taste the delicious homemade meals from our chef. Let the sound of the water and wind chill you out, and enjoy these precious moments on your Sunkoshi River Rafting. Sleeping in a tent near the foot of the Himalayas is an awesome experience.

For 9 nights, sleep under the light of the moon and make some unforgettable memories with us. The excitement of sleeping somewhere new each night is awesome!

Our guides are experienced and know the river well. They will provide you with everything you need to have a safe and comfortable float.

The final day, we raft for two to three hours to Chatara, where our ride aways us. Then, we drive back to Kathmandu. Do note that there are numerous ways to extend this adventure. Combine our rafting trip with paragliding, bungee jumping, jungle safari, and/or a trek. Let us know your interests and we will manage the perfect combination package for you!

Sunkoshi River Rafting can be experienced by adventurers of all ages. River rafting requires no previous experience, just a desire to have some fun. Rafting can be done all throughout the year. Even during monsoon season, the rains bring even more thrilling rapids. Breeze Adventure arranges the rafting excursion with complete management. Please, feel free to contact us for more detailed information.
