River Bhote Koshi (Grade 4 to 5) is a day run of pure adventure. Most of the trips are for two days. However, a day trip is also possible.

The rafting site is located only three hours drive from Kathmandu. Twenty-six kilometers of continuous white water soaks rafters as they shoot through a veritable maze of canyons and boulders. The rapids are steep and continuous class 4, with a lot of continuous class 3 in between. It is the steepest river rafted in Nepal and required a lot of concentration. Starting above Barabise, you raft down to the dam at Lamosangu.

There are also some fixed campsites ranging from safari tents to deluxe tents. A dinner with local fish from the rivers along some local wines would just add more flavour to your adventure story.
