Location, Transportation and Timetable
Dumja, instead of Dolalghat, new put-in point for Sun Kosi River Rafting/Kayaking trip, is about 3 hour drive east of Kathmandu. "WhiteWater Nepal (P)LTD" provides private transport to the put-in point of Sun Kosi river trip. The 235 km. of river action can take either 7 or 9 days, it depends on the season. There is an orientation meeting early in the evening before the trip, providing you with an opportunity to ask any further questions you may have, to meet your fellow rafters and also your guide and team.
The return journey from the take-out point of rafting/kayking on Sun Koshi River - Chatara, in far south east of the country, takes approximately 16 hours to Kathmandu. It is also possible to arrange a flight from Biratnagar (1 hour road journey from Chatara), flight takes around 50min. to Kathmandu and it's on additional cost.

Description
Sun Koshi river rafting/kayaking - classic river trip is famous for being one of the top ten river journeys in the world. The ever changing scenery helps to ensure that every day on the river is exciting and different. The beginning of the trip sees high mountains, open valley, forests and small remote villages. The final days bring you to open plains and the thriving village of Chatara.

The rapids encountered at the beginning of the river trip are fairly relaxed class 3, giving an excellent opportunity for great teamwork to really develop. As the Sun Kosi winds its way across the country the size of the rapids increase and it is not unknown for villagers watching from the riverbank to lose sight of the raft in the huge waters!
Sun Kosi river rafting/kayaking is an ideal trip for those wanting to combine peaceful stretches of stunning scenery, some great and challenging rapids and the experience of a lengthy trip where lifelong friendships can often begin.
