Bhote Koshi originates from the melting snows of Zhangzanbo (8,012 m) Glacier in Tibet. The river is extremely wild and its gradient is the steepest in Nepal. You can finish rafting on Bhote Koshi in a single day. So, if you are short of time, yet crave for extreme adrenaline rush, then this is the package for you.The river is very challenging and even a look down to the river will make most people feel dizzy. If you are seeking for a one day adventure that provides extreme thrill, then this is the river for you.
For a single day trip, we will be rafting and kayaking in the lower Bhote Koshi. The river is full of class 3 rapids, hence the entire trip will be filled with excitement. The gradient of this river is 15 meters for every kilometer. Rafters need not have much experience but this river is only for experienced kayakers. The river passes through narrow canyons that are full of rich vegetation.

Day 1: Raft, Swim and go for cliff jumping.
We will leave for our one-day rafting adventure on Bhote Koshi at 6:30 am sharp, from our office at Thamel, Kathmandu. Please make sure that you arrive at our office well before the departure time. We will be driving to Khadichaur (741 m), which takes about three hours.
After driving for about 1.5 hours, we will reach Zero Kilo, where we stop for tea and coffee (self-pay) for 20 minutes. Then, we will drive for another 1.5 hours to reach our put in point at Khadichaur.
After reaching Khadichaur, we will be setting up our equipment for the trip. It’ll take approximately 30 minutes. If you have not filled your pre-departure form, you need to do so now. This is also a time for you to change into more comfortable clothes, if you like.
Just before entering Bhote Koshi, we will brief you about safety tips, which takes another 20 minutes. We will then start rafting and during our entire trip, we will let you know of the places where you can swim and/or go for cliff jumping.
We will end our trip at Sukute (698 m) and have our (Non-Veg) cold meal consisting of Bread, Cheese, Tuna, Salad, Fruits, Biscuits etc. Then, we will depart for Kathmandu at 5 pm.
