The Bhote Koshi River (Grades 4-5) is Nepal’s steepest river raft. It is utilized for kayaking and rafting. In the native tongue, this translates to “river from Tibet.” The Bhote Koshi, also known as the Koshi River and the Bhote, which both refer to Tibet, has its source in the Tibetan highlands to the east of the Kathmandu-Lhasa Highway.
Bungee jumping is one of Nepal’s most exciting adventure activities, taking place 160 meters over the Bhote Koshi River in eastern Nepal, not far from the Tibetan border. In Nepal, the Bhotekoshi River is a well-known location for white water rafting. It’s well known for canoeing and kayaking in addition to rafting. At a gradient of 15 minutes per kilometer, it is Nepal’s steepest river to raft. Given its proximity to the city, a package of 2-3 days would be plenty for this remarkable water journey.
The organization has rated it as hard, and it begins in the Last Resort and ends in Baseri (in the Dolakha area), a four-hour journey northeast of Kathmandu. The 25 km long river movement concludes at Dolalghat, which is two hours drive from Kathmandu.
The Bhotekoshi river rafting offers an amazing experience that will last a lifetime and is closest to grade V level. The Bhotekoshi River is another lovely location to unwind.
In addition, you will spend your stay in a tent next to a river while listening to the sound of running water. With the beauty of nature all around, the location is unquestionably ideal for white water rafting and other sports. About three hours separate the destination from Kathmandu and the trip lasts two days.
Also, Over the Bhote Koshi River is the ultimate experience. It is 26 kilometers of nonstop white water that soaks rafters as they race through a genuine maze of gorges and stones. A steep slope towers over 2,000 meters (6,600 feet) from the river in the small valley. The Bhotekoshi River was the first location for bungee jumping in Nepal. However, you may always try out a different adventure activity.
