Welcome to one of the top 10 white water rafting rivers in the world. With the place of origin at Tibetan plateau, Sunkoshi flows east and passes through the valleys of Mahabharat Range towards the flatland of Terai. Named as the river of gold, Sunkoshi is a very technical river for rafting. The rapids are tricky and difficult to guess. Sail past the mountains, forests and culturally rich villages. Conquer the challenges of Grade II to V rapids. The difficulty level is increased by frequent water waves. Sunkoshi is one of the longest rafting rivers in Nepal. Check-in point is at Dolalghat which is towards east from Kathmandu. Cover 270km of river distance and experience the thrill of technical rapids and turbulences.
