About Sunkoshi River Rafting
The Sunkoshi is referred to as the Gold River and is one of the longest rivers for rafting in Nepal. Nepal is a top adventure destination for river rafting with many exciting options. The country has rivers bulging from Himalayan runoff. The waters plunge down from the snowy mountains and through green foothills as they make their way to the fertile plains. Of the many choices we offer for river running from east to west, the Sunkoshi River is one of the most popular and exciting adventures.
It is accessed from a scenic drive off the highway that connects Kathmandu with Tibet. The river takes rafters through charming valleys, exciting rapids, relaxing currents, and inviting beaches. Drifting down the Sunkoshi River can also be the perfect way to unwind and refresh after a long trek or to simply escape life on the solid ground for a while.
Our river rafting adventures are both thrilling and safe, suitable for all ages. The valleys we raft through are a rejuvenating blend of smooth waters and rugged rapids.
As we float along the Sunkoshi we take in all the beauty Nepal has to offer including rural farmland, lush landscapes, jungles, remote villages, glimpses of white peaks and perhaps observing wild animals in their natural settings. Nepal’s diverse landscape offers something spectacular at every bend in the river.
A great length of the Sunkoshi is available for rafting, and we have many options for a rafting adventure, from single days to several day trips and longer and from easy stretches to thrilling chutes and descents. The Sunkoshi can be rafted at any time of the year and even in the monsoon when the extra flow provides more excitement.
For our overnight trips, the river adventure is broken up by slow-paced rest on sandy beaches for meal stops and a resort camp under the starry skies.
Throughout the excitement, we follow the highest safety standards and have your well-being as our top concern. Our journeys are safe and enjoyable. Our crew of trained specialists has years of experience guiding on this river and we provide the best gear and rafts that are always accompanied by safety kayakers looking out for you.
Please Note: There are additional options for more exploration in the area that can follow a river adventure including trekking the Indigenous Peoples Trail, nearby jungle safaris and more. If you have the time and the interest, just let us know and we can combine this rafting trip with other, nearby adventures.
