Mountain Flight in Nepal

Sunkoshi River

This classic river trip is famous for being one of the top ten river journeys in the world. The ever changing scenery helps to ensure that every day on the river is exciting and different. The beginning of the trip sees high mountains, open valley, forests and small remote villages. The final days bring you to open plains and the thriving village of Chatara. The rapids encountered at the beginning of the trip are fairly relaxed class 3, giving an excellent opportunity for great teamwork to really develop. As the river winds its way across the country the size of the rapids increase and it is not unknown for villagers watching from the riverbank to lose sight of the raft in the huge waters! This is an ideal trip for those wanting to combine peaceful stretches of stunning scenery, some challenging rapids and the experience of a lengthy trip where lifelong friendships can often begin Dumja, instead of Dolalghat the new put-in point for the Sun Kosi River is about 3 hours east of Kathmandu and reached by private minibus. The 235 km. of river action can take either 7 or 9 days, depend on the season. There is an orientation meeting early in the evening before the trip, providing you with an opportunity to ask any further questions you may have, to meet your fellow rafters and also your guide.The return journey from the take-out point of Chatara, in the far south east of the country, takes approximately 16 hours to Kathmandu. It is also possible to arrange a flight from Biratnagar (1 hour road journey from Chatara) to Kathmandu or Pokhara in additional cost.
