Raft and Trek in Nepal
The Tamur is the best all round combined trek, rafting and kayaking multi day expedition in Nepal and is suitable for anyone wishing to go. If you wish to kayak the trip you will need to be an experienced class 3/4 kayaker but we will have qualified instructors and guides on the water to help you find the best lines on all the rapids. If you wish to raft the river then you really need no experience, we will teach you everything you need to know, all you'll need is to bring is your sense of adventure!
The Tamur river and it's tributaries drain the snows off Kanchenjunga, the Worlds third highest peak. The river itself is the sixth largest river in Nepal. Our expedition will set off from Kathmandu we will transfer by bus and drive to Basantapur.
Basantapur marks the true start of our expedition. From here we will trek for 4 days to the put in of the river.
The trek is far from something that should put anyone off of this particular rafting trip. All of our equipment will be carried by local porters and the trek itself is a very gentle trek along a ridge through beautiful woods and meadows at an altitude of 3000m.During the trek, weather permitting we should get amazing views of Kanchenjunga, Everest and Makalu.
We will put onto the river at Dobhan and from here will follow the river to the take out on the Sun Kosi at Chatra. The river between Dobhan and Chatra is graded at class 4 predominantly. The lower sections of the river will include some rapids that touch the lower end of class 5. The last day of the Tamur is regarded as one of the best single days of white water in the World!
The Best Expedition in Nepal
The Tamur expedition is probably one of the finest combination expeditions Nepal has to offer giving participants the chance to experience true unspoilt trekking and fantastic whitewater rafting.
