Rafting on Tamur
Thanks to the new road this jewel of eastern Nepal has recently became quite easy to access. Tamur river drains water from the area of Mount Kanchenjunga, the third highest peak in the world. In seven river days we'll paddle over 120 rapids which takes more than 130 river kms. Breathtaking views of eastern Himalayan range will be a very welcome company. Once you're already in Nepal join us for trekking in either Manaslu, Everest, Gosaikund region (more information on request).
The expedition will be led by our experienced rafting guides who take Nepali rivers as their second home. Besides rafts the kayaks will be available on the trip for safety on the river and more fun in the rapids. Each boat will be fully equiped with whitewater gear including dry bags. Due to warm weather and water in this time of the year neoprene suits are only provided on request.
1st day Expedition group meeting in a hotel (to be specified) in Thamel, Kathmandu, where we'll also have an option to leave excess baggage while on the river.
2nd to 3rd day You'll get a dry bag along with some information how and what to pack. We'll do some preparations and hit the road. The goal of our transport is Dobhan.
4th to 9th day We'll load the rafts. You'll be given thorough safety talk and all instructions by your guide. In the 131 km of river length we'll enjoy world class white water with over 120 rapids up to grade 4+ (5), camping on white sandy beaches, remoteness from civilization, no roads and beautiful nature. Especially first two days and the final one are described as some of the best whitewater in the world.
10th day On the last river day Tamur joins Sun Kosi river, that will bring us to our take out point in Chatra. We'll pack all our equipement and take a bus back to Kathmandu (optionally you can shorten the travelling time by flying back to Kathmandu for an additional costs).
