Trip Overview

If you want a feel of an adrenaline rush and have a limited time, you can choose rafting at Bhote Koshi River Rafting, which flows from the mountains of Tibet to Nepal. Rafting at this river is challenging as it is steep. You will feel the rapids of IV-V class as you drift along the waves of the river, which is in itself an adventure. While you raft along the river, you will be face to face with the mesmerizing scene where you will seek for a chance to click some photos. September to October is the best time for getting better rafting experience; however, rafting can be done throughout the year.

The put-in point of Bhote Koshi Rafting is Khadichour, and take out point is Sukute Beach, but these places might be changed during monsoon. You will pass by the lush valleys, greenery, and villages, which are fascinating to see. Rafting at Bhotekoshi contains all the treasures of natural glory from the glorious view of mountains to stunning waterfalls.  This rafting expedition is perfect for those who want to get white water experience in a limited time.

Itinerary

Day: 1 Arrival in Kathmandu airport (1345meters)

Your arrival to Tribhuwan International Airport (TIA), you will be met by our Airport Representative, and transfer to hotel

Day: 2 Sightseeing around Kathmandu valley.

Your sightseeing trip will start at 9 AM in the morning after breakfast. We provide a private vehicle and professional tour guide. Places we visit are Pashupatinath temple, Boudhanath, Monkey temple, Bhaktapur Durbar square, and Kathmandu durbar square. The afternoon includes a final briefing and preparations for the trek.

Day : 3 Kathmandu to Dhunche by Bus (2,030m)

Drive to Dhunche via Trisuli Bazaar by private transport. Overnight in DHUNCHE (4WD is necessary because of the rocky un-asphalted road).This is about a 5-6 hour drive.

Day: 4 Dhunche to Shin Gompa (3,250m, Trek 5 hrs)

Today we start our trek passing the gompa, school and army post and then switchback up the steep hill above the village to Dursagang (2660m). The trail continues less steeply from now, mostly in the forest of hemlock and oak to the top of the ridge at Foprang Danda, where we will have lunch. The trail to Sing Gompa cuts across the ridge top, staying fairly level as it crosses the head of the valley. After passing the final ridge at 3260 meters we will arrive at Sing Gompa 

Day: 5 Shin Gompa to Gosaikunda Lake (4,380m, Trek 4-5 hrs)

The trail of today climbs steeply up the ridge, which creates a transition zone between rich, moist forests on the northern slopes and dry scrub vegetation on the slope facing south. The area on the northern slope is a sanctuary for the red panda, an endangered species that the Nepali calls cat bear. The trail crosses behind the ridge and stays in the deep forest for a while before emerging onto a saddle at Challenge Pati. From here we enter the Goisakund protected area where the killing of animals, lighting of wood fires and grazing of goats is prohibited. As the trail ascends there are outstanding views across Langtang valley to Langtang Lirung. 

We start by climbing further along the ridge until we see the first lakes at around 4100 meters. The trail now leaves the ridge and heads high above the Trisuli Valley. After the trail crosses a spur, the second lake in the chain (Bhairav Kund) comes into view. The trail climbs gently but continuously to the third and largest lake, Goisakund. Goisakund lake has a black rock in the middle, said to be the head of Shiva. According to the legend, Shiva created the lake when he pierced a glacier with his trident to obtain water to quench his thirst after consuming poison. Hundreds of pilgrims come here to worship and bathe during the full-moon festival each August. It takes about 45 minutes to walk around the lake.
