Package Itinerary

Drawing amazing and mystifying power from high in the Bhot (Tibet), the Bhote Koshi River, tumbles into Nepal through breathtaking valleys. Glacier water, from the 10th Highest Mountain Shisa Pangma, carves a steep and direct drop at the top that gradually eases to more placid streams and calmer pools within a 46 kms run at the Lamosangu dam. The rapids over here are a solid class IV- V at high flow and a more classic III at lower levels.

Continuous, challenging and action-packed, the Bhote Koshi offers nothing less than the ride of a lifetime. If you have never rafted before and if you have limited time but desire an adrenaline overload, then this is an ideal introductory trip package for you.

A stupendous setting, thrilling drops, gorges and limestone formations welcome you into another dimension where your instinct becomes your driving force and your body is your best ally. Both experienced and novice paddlers will agree that this is the Ultimate Experience.

The perfect complement to any trip to Nepal or on the road to Tibet can be an extended stay at the multifaceted Borderlands Eco Adventure Resort. Activities and facilities

DETAIL ITINERARY

Day 01: KATHMANDU DRIVE TO RAFTING STARTING POINT. IT TAKES 3 HRS WITH PRIVATE VEHICLE:

Meet at the office as per time arranged by your expedition leader at the pre-departure meeting. Then we travel by our private bus to the river starting point of the trip. This is a spectacular drive through villages and if weather permits, you will have fantastic Mountain views i.e. Ganesh Himal, Langtang etc. Upon arrival in the camp lunch will be served. After early lunch your expedition leader will deliver a safety talk and provide all paddling gear for the trip. First day rafting provides about three and half hour of pure white water. After a long series of class 3 rapids we drop into the first class 4 drop known as Gerbil in the Plumbing. From here there is a stretch of class 3 whitewater and then we come to the crux of the day, which is a long, technical rapid called 'Frog in a Blender'.

After this rapid we settle down for about twenty feet, and then it’s back into the soup with a long series of class 3+/4- drops which lead us into a nifty little rapid called Carnal Knowledge of a Deviant Nature. The remaining ten kilometers of river is a non-stop series of class 3 and 4 drops terminating into short pools with the next drop just a few feet away. The river flows through a beautiful narrow canyon with lush green vegetation and waterfalls coming in from the steep stone walls. At the bottom of this stretch is a rapid called ExLax. Just before we hit the village of Barabise we load all the boats onto our bus and drive back to our camp, change your wet clothes, enjoy the scenery and late evening have dinner and camp.

Day 02:  2-3 HOURS RAFTING & DRIVE BACK TO KATHMANDU:

Early morning, have hot drinks and breakfast then pack your gears. You have the second chance to show how your raft team can work well together in challenging rapids. We have lunch on the river and continue the action until the take out point. We run the top stretch again in the morning, though most people don’t recognize it the second time through. Today instead of getting out at Barabise we continue on down through the center of town and onto a short flat stretch. Upon reaching the dam, the entire gradient of the last kilometer fulminates into fifty meters of incredibly steep and technical rapid known as 'The Great Wall'.

'The Great Wall’s one redeeming feature is that there is a pool at the bottom, because right after the pool is an incredible rapid called 'Liquid Bliss', which leads directly into a rapid called 'Fake Right Go Left', which leads directly into another rapid called 'My God, What To Do?'. The trip ends with a bang on a long series of drops known as 'Dazed and Confused'. Without a doubt this is some of the finest whitewater rafting to be had anywhere. Our trip ends by mid-noon. Once you get their load up all the kits on bus, drive back to Kathmandu.
