The Sun Kosi is the longest trip in river miles offered in Nepal and is rated as one of the top ten river expeditions in the world.
Starting near the Tibetan border and draining off the Eastern Himalayas all the way to the sacred Ganges River in India, this river offers big volume whitewater. A journey down this “river of gold” impresses any rafting or kayaking enthusiast with relaxing and sometimes challenging canyons, refreshing waterfalls, bat caves, interesting temples, beautiful white sandy beaches for setting up camp and of course a great variety of whitewater.
If you are looking for a long river expedition with a nice variety of scenery and access to villages along the way, then the “river of gold” is a classic choice.
Adventure Hub Nepal (AHN) also offers lots of trips with different combinations and durations on the Sun Kosi so please ask our friendly office staff about the choices you can take if you are on a tight schedule.
This is probably the best multi-adventure trip in Nepal, if not the world! Our journey starts with 3 days trekking following a 3000-meter ridge through woods and meadows taking in stunning views of Kanchenjunga, Makalu & Mount Everest before dropping off into the lush villages of the Tamur Valley.
Once we hit the river, this amazing whitewater adventure starts out with a bang with some big, intense and challenging class 4+ rapids. The rest of the river is an exciting combination of white water and beautiful remote wilderness scenery.
If you would like to get completely off the beaten track and seek an authentic travel experience and personal challenge, then this trekking and whitewater combination is a perfect epic adventure for you. This trip is for one who likes to enjoy mountain views as well as do great whitewater rafting or kayaking adventures.
This is the easiest of our moderate level lodge and tented trekking adventures and may involve walking for up to 6 to 7 hours per day. Maximum altitude is 3,000 meters and as the trek involves three days walking a total of approximately 45km a good level of fitness is required. The first day is a big day and we hope to cover a good distance on gently ascending and level hilly terrain on well-defined trails. On the second day, we start descending on well-defined trails that are steep and rocky in places. The last day is a half-day trek covering approximately 8 kilometers over mostly descending, somewhat steeply in places, well-defined trails.
Note: It's possible to do the Sun Kosi expedition only or Trek & Tamur river only for people who don't have enough time for the whole trip. Just send us an email and we can design itinerary according to your needs.
Fixed Departure : 7th - 25th Nov 2023/24
