Overview:

The Sunkoshi ‘River of gold’ has been rated as one of the top ten rafting trips in the world! It is also in the list of ‘must do while in Nepal’. The river rises in Tibet, and flows eastwards in Nepal through the great valley between the Mahabharat Lekh (hills) and the Himalaya. It forms the watershed for most eastern Nepal and gathering strength from tributaries draining the highest mountains in the world it emerges onto the northern plains of India where it joins the Ganges. Our journey takes us 270 km through some of Nepal’s most remote area giving you a unique wilderness experience. The first two days are relatively easy and allow time to train you as a team before the bigger rapids arrive. The rapids have acquired manes like Meat Grinder, High Anxiety, Jaws and Big dipper, from previous experiences on expeditions. Say no more! The calmer stretches between rapids give you time to take in the phenomenal views, swim (voluntarily) in warm water and camp on the pristine white sandy beaches.

You will stop some where on the half way for lunch. Today you are encountering Meat Grinder grade IV+ rapid, it is fairly straight rundown the center avoiding holes left and right. A few meters below here the Tamba Koshi joins with Son Koshi, on the left bank of confluence there you find a beach which will be suit for camping.

A few kilometers later, the mighty Arun River enters from the left gorge and almost immediately after, the Tamur River also adds its water with and becomes as the Sapta Koshi “The seven Rivers”. The confluence is called tribenighat; it has an interesting temple to visit if we have time. Now the sapta Koshi is surges onwards, carving a way through its last obstacle of the foothills. 5 kilometers later on the left bank there is another larger Hindu Temple called Baraha Chhetra. On the day of full moon in January every year, thousands of Hindu pilgrims visited here to pay their homage to lord Vishnu. According to legend has it that, once a demon god inhabeted this area and troubled the holy men and pilgrims. Hearing of this, Lord Vishnu, preserver of the Universe, he decided to kill the demon, and taking the form of a pig for the purpose, he slated the demon in battle. The annual Barara festival is commemorates this victory and inside the Temple you will see a statue of Baraha, a pig-headed figure of Lord Vishnu. Back into the river and continue floating along the powerful current, and then rounding a corner there is a suspension bridge swoops high over the river and the are hills dramatically give a way to totally flat Terai and northern plains of India. This is the end of our classic and memorable river expedition trip here.
