Tamur River Rafting

12 Days

“Eastern Multi-Sport Adventure”

No expedition to Nepal would be complete without a trek in the famous Himalaya and it is no accident that one of the world’s finest rivers starts with one of the most scenic treks.

This is probably the best multi-adventure trip in Nepal, if not the world! Our journey starts with 4 days trekking following a 3000-meter ridge through woods and meadows taking in stunning views of Kanchenjunga, Makalu & Mount Everest before dropping off into the lush villages of the Tamur Valley.

Once we hit the river, this amazing whitewater adventure starts out with a bang with some big, intense, and challenging class V rapids. The rest of the river is an exciting combination of white water and beautiful remote wilderness scenery.

If you would like to get completely off the beaten track and seek an authentic travel experience and personal challenge, then this trekking and whitewater combination is a perfect epic adventure for you!
