Sunkosi River Rafting

The river rises near Tibet and is joined by the BhoteKoshi just downstream from Barabesi. Most raft trips start at Dolalghat. The Sun Koshi flows eastwards in Nepal through the great valley between the Mahabharat Lekh mountains and the Himalayas.

The volume increases considerably draining flows from its Himalayan tributories. In November, the flow at Dolalghat is about 100 cumecs. Lower down the river, through the big rapids of the Jungle Corridor, it would be about 400 cumecs, which is appr. 11,000 cft., a typical low flow on the Grand Canyan of the Colorado.

At the end at Chatra, the flow is a super 800 cumecs, in November, which makes it one of the major rivers of the world in monsoon.

A nice thing about Sunkosi is that the general standard of the river gets progressively harder as you descend it to practice your skills on easy water before the more interesting, bigger and continuous rapids lower down the river.
