Bhote Koshi River Rafting another popular river for rafting, the Bhote Koshi originates in the Tibetan plateau from where it flows down steep gorges to Nepal in the south. Naturally, the landscape it flows through is rugged, adding thrills to the trip. It's a tough ride with Class IV and Class V rapids at the higher flows and Class III in the lower levels.

It's 3-hour drive from Kathmandu along the Arniko Highway to Bhote Koshi. The drive to the put-in point has its own highlight -- views of snow-capped mountains such as Langtang and Dorje Lakpa towards the north of the country. With its steep gradient, it is a fast flowing river that challenges the expertise of river guides. The rapids on the Bhote Koshi are highly technical and come one after another in quick succession. At first the Class III rapids are encountered followed by the more difficult Class IV. The river flows through narrow canyons covered in lush green vegetation and from the rocks flow down crystal clear waterfalls. The usual run on this river lasts from one to two days.
