Sun Koshi River Rafting - 09 Days

Sun Koshi River is the longest river offered in Nepal. Sun Koshi, "River of Gold" is considered one of the ten best rafting rivers in the world. The Sun Koshi flows eastwards in Nepal through the great valley between the Mahabharat Lek Mountains and the Himalaya. It forms the watershed for most of eastern Nepal and gathering strength from tributaries draining the highest mountains in the world it emerges onto the northern plains of India where it joins the Ganges.

In November, the flow at Dolalghat is about 100 cubics: lower down the river, through the big rapids of the 'jungle Corridor', it would be about 400 currents which is approx. 11,000 cfs-a typical low flow on the Grand Canyon of the Colorado. At the take-out, at Chatra, the flow is a mighty 800 cubic- still only a fraction of monsoon levels!
