Arun River belongs to Koshi river system. The easiest way to get to the river is fly to Tumlingtar. Alternatively one can drive for 1 1/2 days and then trek for three days. The Arum River is one of the more advanced rivers in Nepal, and is for only three days on the river but the scenic mountain views and the unique wildlife makes it worthwhile. It is unique river passing through the two greenery hills usually explored by beginner and intermediate kayak learners and rafters.
