sunkoshi-river-raftingSunKoshi River Rafting is one of the world’s top ten white water expeditions. The river rises near Shisha Pangma in Tibet and run eastwards draining the highest mountain of the world. It emerges on to the northern plains of India where it joins the Ganges. The white water of Sun Koshi is Biblical, which is huge and expedition size rafts disappear into the vastness of crashing waves and rolling, boiling water. There are no roads or towns, just the occasional picturesque village and friendly shouts of “Namaste” from the bank -this is a spoilt, rural Nepal at the best. All along the river, are beautiful large white sandy beaches for camping, and the lower section of the river heavily forested with troops of monkeys and exotic birds. If you do this trip once in your lifetime, you will have a wonderful experience that you will thoroughly enjoy. SunKoshi River Rafting is one of the great adventure fun rafting in Nepal where trekkers can enjoy very much and have fun so much in sunkoshi river rafting.
