TAMUR RIVER RAFTING - 11 Days

Tamur River Rafting is one of Nepal’s newest rivers open for rafting and kayaking commercially. It certainly lives up to its name, “The Jewel in the East”. This sparkling river hails its waters from the mighty Mount Kanchenjunga, the third highest peak in the world, which straddles Nepal’s border in the east. The river itself is accessed by trekking on one if the most beautiful trails in Nepal boasting views of Everest, Makalu and Kanchenjunga, simply breathtaking. Once you reach the river you are then treated to rapids, rapids and more rapids! In its 131 raft-able kilometer length, there are some 120 rapids, which sure as hell means you are going to be in for the ride of your life, with the non stop whitewater of this river.

The unspoiled and barely inhabited environments of this river make for an unforgettable trip. Probably the best combination trip in Nepal : magnificent white water, a beautiful unspoiled valley, combined with one of the most scenic treks in Nepal. This expedition is perfect for people wanting an adrenaline fueled adventure.

Day 3
DAY 3-4

The local people are a mix of castes and tribes and very interesting to get to know. Nepali’s are renowned for being the most friendly people on the planet, and during this trip you will discover why.

Day 4
DAY 5-10

If you choose the bus option, at around 1pm, the gear bus, staff and clients opting to travel by bus will depart. They will drive overnight to reach Biratnagar airport in the morning, to collect the clients who opted to fly (or if everyone is on the bus, they will continue direct to Dobhan). It is a very long drive, and quite uncomfortable, so if you have the budget, we do recommend that you fly instead. If however you are on the bus, be prepared for a long bumpy ride – it’s quite the adventure in itself!
