Bhote Koshi White Water Rafting and Kayaking – 2 Days
If you have limited time and need a feeling of an adrenaline rush, rafting at Bhote Koshi (also translated as the river from Tibet) is the perfect one for you. The Araniko Highway resides along this river making an easy transport way to Lhasa from Kathmandu. Even looking at the river with rapids of class 3, 4 and 4+ rushes your blood and gives you an adrenaline rush.
The put in point of this rafting trip is the lower part of Khadichour, which is a 3 hour drive from Kathmandu, and the take out point is the Sukute Beach but the put in point changes during the monsoon season. The rafting journey is suitable throughout the year but you can gain a much better experience from September to October.If you are looking for a thrilling white water experience within a limited time, this rafting expedition is just the right one for you!
