  • Trip introduction

    Ride the surging tides of the Bhote Koshi River in Nepal and enjoy three hours of rafting over class III and IV rapids. With sturdy paddles in hand, you'll hop into inflatable rafts and navigate the raging rapids and tricky sections that'll splash cool river water all over you. During the calmer sections of the river, be sure to look up at the towering mountain cliffs around you, with terraced farms and fields, and take a moment to admire the incredible beauty of the Bhote Koshi valley. Expert trainers will accompany you to guide the raft and maintain proper safety at all times.

    NOTE: Prices displayed are for travellers from the Indian sub-continent. Foreign travellers may be subject to a premium. Price displayed are per person prices for a booking of two travellers.

    Destination

    The activity site for your day adventure of rafting in Nepal is located near the deep gorges of Listikot.

You'll paddle forward on the river in an inflatable raft, bouncing up and down on foaming white rapids, with views of lime green, terraced farms around you. You'll speed under suspension bridges where curious local natives often gather to watch the rafts surging over the tides.

    This day adventure package also includes travel arrangements between Thamel, Kathmandu and the Listikot activity site, as well as a buffet lunch.
