Mountain Flight in Nepal

Tamor River

Tamor a mighty River lies Eastern part of Nepal, it begin from Mt. Kanchanjunga and other numerous mountains of Eastern part. A trip to Tamor offers a thrilling experience combined trekking, Rafting and exploration through cultural heritage. The snows of Kanchenjunga feed a challenging less known relative of the Sun Kosi. The spectacular Tamur combines an exhilarating river expedition with one of the best short treks in the Himalayas. Picking up our team of fifty porters at Basantapur we trek for 3 days through ancient moss covered Rhododendron forests and sunlit meadows. The short trek is stunning, with great views of Kanchenjunga, Makalu and Everest. Descending to Dobhan we wander through charming Gurung villages and emerald fields of rice. Children play excitedly along the trail as we pass, snow-capped Himalayan giants surround us, and the champagne river churns and bubbles below. It gets even better - local people are a fascinating collage of tribes and castes who have perfected the brewing of their local drink, Tungba, to a fine art. At Dobhan three tributaries of the Tamur join their forces, combining the racing rivers of the high mountains to the north. Steep canyon walls enclose the river and the rapids are powerful and continuous. In the middle section the river opens up and there are beautiful white sandy beaches. The last few days where the river turns back to the west is phenomenal. Towering waves leap skyward, with seemingly endless rapids surging through steep canyon walls. Small fishermen's villages line the confluence of every major tributary, while wild monkeys watch from the jungle as we drift past. For people who want a longer trip that combines a spectacular short trek with intense whitewater, the Tamur is without a doubt the river to run.

Detailed Itinerary
Day 01 Kathmandu - Basantapur
Morning fly to Biratnagar, At Biratnagar we meet up with the rafting bus and drive up through the bustling market town of Hile and onto the end of the road at Basantapur where we camp.

Day 02-04 Trekking to Dovan

No visit to the Himalayas would be complete without trekking and it is no accident that one of the world's finest rivers starts with one of Nepal's most scenic treks. At Basantapur our Sirdhar (head porter) will be there with a tough looking crew who will carry all the expedition gear to the river. Our 3-day trek follows a ridge up to a 10,000 ft pass above the sacred lake at Gupha Pokhari with magnificent views of Kanchenjunga, Makalu and the . Trekking camps are an extravagant affair with staff preparing well-deserved meals. Arriving at Dobhan where the river expedition starts it is highly recommended that you sample the local Tongba (Millet wine).

Day 05 - 08 Rafting

The Tamur and its tributaries drain the snows of Kachenjunga, third highest peak in the world. Constrained by steep valley walls, it becomes Nepal's sixth largest river and one of the world's remotest whitewater river expeditions. A raft trip down the Tamur isn't just a vacation.  it's an education. Our river guides spend the first part of the morning explaining the finer points on how to paddle through whitewater and stay in the raft as it bucks and contorts through rapids. From Dobhan we have 131 kilometers of breath-taking river journey through the heart of eastern Nepal. With over 100 class 3 and 4+ rapids, the Tamur offers a unique six days of white water with plenty of time to explore hidden side valleys and visit remote villages.Evenings are spent around the campfire, drinking hot-spiced rum and getting to know the people on the trip. Food is communally prepared, every day a different raft crew helping with the creation of sumptuous meals. Camping on the Tamur is awesome.

Day 09 Rafting

The Lower Tamur is a steep and continuous mountain river section; a unique combination of exceptionally fun and challenging rapids without it ever getting past the point of recreation. It's sort of like being flushed down a huge open-air toilet, but the Tidy Bowl Man is your guide and there are no worries. Emerald green fields are terraced high above the river on precipitous slopes; curious villagers lining suspension bridges are amazed as we plunge through cascading waves and chutes of foam.

Day 10 Rafting - Drive to Biratnagar Fly back to Kathmandu

The Tamur / Sun Kosi confluence is called Tribeni Ghat and has an interesting temple to visit. Before emerging onto the flatland Terai, there is another larger Hindi Temple called Baraha Chhetra. Every year on the day of the full moon in January, thousands of Hindu pilgrims mass here to pay homage to Lord Vishnu. The final day we raft the Sun Kosi to Chatara and then return to Kathmandu. From the takeout it is a short 2 hours drive then a 55-minute flight back to KTM.
