Tamur along with its tributaries drain Mt. Kanchanjunga (8,586 m), the third highest mountain in the world. This river opened in 1998 for commercial rafting, and since then, it has won the affection of many rafting/kayaking enthusiasts throughout the world.

Tamur is not readily available, hence to enjoy this river, you need to trek for about four days. However, you will not be disappointed, the trek in itself is equally exciting. You will be treading on narrow dirt tracks that join one typical village to another. The whole region is sparsely populated, and only a small portion of land serves for agriculture. You can view the glory of Mt. Kanchanjunga from the trekking routes.

The Tamur river has some 120 rapids within its rafting length of 131 kilometres. The initial parts of Tamur are tough. This river is for experienced guides and rafters/ kayakers, and you need to be very careful because there have been several fatalities recorded in this river.
