The Bhote Koshi is known as the River from Tibet and you can start a trip after a peak over the border into Tibet. The Kathmandu / Lhasa Highway (AKA Friendship Highway, Arniko Highway) runs along the river. You can run a day trip or do a two-day expedition and run parts of the river twice. It’s a great beginner river for rafters and fun for kayakers at all levels. Bhote Koshi is the beautiful for adventure trip with very steep and basically non-stop mountain river only 3 hours drives from Kathmandu offering two days of intense and challenging river activity.

We take a drive on 95 km road east of Kathmandu to the starting point Lomosangu – Dam 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. We raft the first 10 km of the most exciting stretch of the river and then return to the start to play again the same stretch the next day rather than continue with only half a day paddling to the end. Drives back to our camp.

After breakfast a quick pack up and set out (approx. 9 to 10 am) for white water hit again for a class 3 rapid starting from upper section. 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, Dolalghat Bazaar, at about 2 to 3 pm and bus back to Kathmandu.
Our driver and airport representative will drive you to the airport for your final departure.
Nepal is under a constant cloud of political uncertainty as has been for years. The U.S. Department of State and other governments urge caution when traveling to Nepal, often in the form of official travel warnings. Travelers should read these warnings and exercise caution as they would before traveling to any other country.
After significant due diligence before my recent trip to Nepal, I came away reasonably confident that Nepal is safe for trekkers. A number of knowledgeable people were unequivocal in their opinions that trekking in Nepal is mostly unaffected by politics. I booked our tickets after hearing from two fellow Coloradans who were in Kathmandu preparing for a trek when the King was overthrown. Their advice was to go and that, “everything will be fine…just don’t burn tires in front of the Royal Palace.”
As with any foreign country, use good judgment and do your part to ensure that you have a safe trip. Solo trekkers are most at risk for a number of reasons and it’s best to go with a guide. Don’t walk around the streets of Kathmandu late at night (taxis are extremely cheap) and avoid large crowds. Petty theft can occur at lowland villages including from the tents of unsuspecting trekkers.
For those who decide to make the trip, the number of people trekking in Nepal remains relatively low compared to years past and it’s a great time to go.
