The Sun Kosi or, River of Gold is rated one of the top ten river trips in the world. The river rises near Shisha Pangma in Tibet and runs eastwards, draining the highest mountains in the world before emerging on the plains of India, where it joins the Ganges. Our journey takes us 270km through some of Nepals remotest regions giving you a unique wilderness experience. A dream trip for rafters and experienced kayakers the Sun Kosi combines pristine beaches, warm water and the thrill of Himalayan white water.
Rafting trips start right here from Dolalghat. Since the Banepa-Bardibas highway is now in operation, it is possible to arrange a trip from Dumjabesi. One of the nice things about the Sun Koshi is that, with the exception of a few big rapids like Harkapur the general standard of the river gets progressively harder as you descend it so there is time to loosen up and practice your skills on easy water before you reach the more interesting bigger and more challenging rapids lower down the river. You will be pleasantly surprised and flattered by how much your skills improve by the end of the trip!
