Tamur River Rafting

Tamur River situated on the eastern part of Nepal is known as the sixth largest river in Nepal which is fed by the waters of Kanchenjunga Mountain. Tamur River flows through a beautiful and unspoiled valley best suited for those rafter who require sense of adventure. Tamur River  rafting offers magnificent white water trip with approximately 130 rapids in 120 kms with huge Class IV and Class V rapids that ensures fast action and unforgettable challenge. Tamur River is also recommended as an exhilarating, active, white water rafting kayak trip.

The Tamur River trek is an extraordinary mix of a trek through beautiful countryside, tremendous perspectives of mountain peaks above eight thousand meter and a delightful whitewater experience. The excursion starts with a flight to Biratnagar, accompanied by a head to Hile and after that further on to Basantapur the following day. Getting our group of porters at Basantapur, we trek through antiquated greenery rhododendron forests. The excursion passes through the beautiful, phenomenal beaches for camping and plenty of natural life.

Day 1– Kathmandu - Basantapur
The adventure starts with a short but scenic flight from Kathmandu to Biratnagar in eastern Nepal. Stop for lunch and drive to the hilltop town of Hile and overnight, at Basantapur. The drive from Hile to Basantapur is along a ridge with superb views.

Day 2 – Basantapur
Enjoy the early morning sounds of a typical Nepalese small town market and if lucky, a beautiful sunrise. After breakfast, take a scenic drive over ridges to another small settlement called Basantapur. This is a busy little town from where the Nepalese porters walk through rhododendron forests carrying the heavy rafts to the river’s put-in point.

Day 3-4 – Gopa Pokhara
Early morning breakfast is followed by a trek over a 10,000ft pass above the sacred Gopa Pokhara Lake that has superb views of the eight-thousanders: Kanchenjunga, Makalu and the world’s highest, Mt. Everest. A walk down terraced hillsides leads to the Tamur river below.

Day 5
After the usual safety talk, the much anticipated river trip begins and soon some of the most challenging white-water is encountered. The river run today is exciting as one rapid leads to the next in quick succession. Later in the afternoon, it is time to set up camp and discuss the day’s events.

Day 6
On this day, continuous, powerful rapids are encountered as the river flows through a deep canyon. It then broadens out and small fishing villages are passed along the way. Entertainment comes in the form of monkeys on the prowl along the river banks. Camp is set up on one of those lovely white sandy beaches.

Day 7
Rest day and everyone is free to spend it the way he wants. The choices are many: just relax, read, go for a swim or take part in an invigorating game of volleyball with the others. The setting is simply beautiful.

Day 8
Another easy day, but with some white-water fun in the water.

Day 9: Sun Koshi
The ninth day brings a dramatic change; massive waves greet the boat and the whitewater action today is exhilarating. Another ride through steep canyon walls ensures there’s plenty of action and the rapids keep coming. Finally the river runs into the Sun Koshi River.

Day 10: Chatara
This morning, watch the sun rise over the hills. Then float down to Chatara where the long adventure finally comes to an end.

Day 11: Kathmandu/Chitwan
Fly back to Kathmandu or drive to Chit-wan National Park for some safari.
