Package Itinerary

The first commercial run on Tamur was in 1990 and there have been very few descents since then. In November of 1991, we ran an expedition down this river and proved to ourselves that all we had heard about it being an 'exceptional trip' was right. The trip combines one of the best short Himalayan treks with a challenging and exhilarating river journey. Tamur drains the snow of the mighty Kanchanjunga massif, the third highest peak in the world, and flows through a truly beautiful and unspoiled gorge. The superb sandy beaches, few villages and limited agriculture along the river provide Tamur with the most pristine rafting environment in Nepal.

Although the Tamur is still relatively untravelled, it probably has created more whitewater interest than any other commercial rafting rivers in Nepal. With three days of trekking through the foothills of the Himalayas followed by 120 kms of exceptional whitewater thrill, Tamur is a highly recommended, active and exhilarating wilderness journey.

DAY 07: RAFTING IN TAMUR

Rai Ghat to Bander Ghat rafting approx. 6 hours. Hold tight, the ride is not over yet. as past the point of Sap Su Khola is a rapid with the greatest drop Huge 'holes', 'eddies' and churning 'stopper waves' demands team work and hard paddle.

DAY 10: RAFTING IN TAMUR

Starting and ending point for the day is not mention because of this is one of the remote areas for the white water rafting. Relax and enjoy a mellow day on the river as you float through the day with the occasional "all forward call" to bring you back into action. You need to relax so you are ready for tomorrow!

DAY 11: RAFTING IN TAMUR

Final day, raft take out in Chatara and transfer to Biratnagar for flight to Kathmandu or go for the safari trip either in Koshi Tappu or in Chitwan National park or drive back to Kathmandu.
