The Bhotekosi Rafting is one of the most popular rafting activities in the Himalayas. Bhote Koshi known as the River from Tibet (Bhot), starts after a peak over the border into Tibet. The Kathmandu/Lhasa Highway (Arniko Friendship Highway) runs alongside the river. You can run a day trip or do a two-day expedition and run parts of the river twice. It’s a great beginner river for rafters and fun for kayakers at all levels.

Rafting on the Bhote Koshi river is the best for beginners if you have never rafted before. It’s even better than the Trishuli River. Despite that, if you have limited time but desire an adrenaline overload, then this is a perfect introductory trip package for you.

Adjoining high above the river, slopes, curious villagers lining suspension footbridges are astonished as we plunge through cascading waves. Raft in Bhote Kosi is probably the most exciting short rafting trip and of course, the best white water adventure in the world.

We love the adventure as it really the best available in whitewater fun. The rapids here are a solid class IV- V at high flow, and a more classic III at lower levels. This true adventure can be rafted between October and December and February and April.

Rafting Bhotekoshi Traveller’s Review

Bhote Koshi Rafting Adventure for lifetime experience

Rated 5 out of 5
November 12, 2021

We are a team of 5 college students from Kathmandu and have booked a Bhotekoshi Rafting tour for my college friends with Gokyo Treks and Expedition. From the initial inquiry to the end of the trip the company was very impressive.

Ammar – the founder of the company was extremely efficient. He answers all of our emails and messages in return. He arranged a private transfer for your rafting group to Bhotekoshi and back.

The rafting Guide was Ram Sharan, and his crew were extremely funny and always wanted to ensure we were happy. We were beginners for the Rafting tour but achieve amazing knowledge. Their customer service is first-class, so I would definitely recommend Ammar and his company to anyone.
