Bhote Koshi River, that runs below the Freindship Highway in Tibet and Araniko Highway in Nepal originates in Tibet. The River is known for thrilling rapids of Level 4+ and hence caters the most challenging rafting holiday in Nepal.
Bhote Koshi River Rafting is a thrilling water adventure with very steep and basically non-stop torrents. The starting point of the rafting is only 3 hours drive from Kathmandu offering two days of intense and challenging river activity. If you have never rafted before and if you have limited time but desire an adrenaline overload, then this is a perfect introductory trip package for you because Bhote Koshi is probably the most exciting short rafting trip in Nepal and best white water adventure in the world. "Like a pin-ball Machine-and you' re the ball" "Like being flushed down on open air toilet" "Expedition River" etc.
With the adventure of Bhote Koshi River Rafting you also get the chance to observe emerald green fields terraced high above the river on precipitous slopes, curious villagers lining suspension bridges are amazed as we plunge through cascading waves and chutes of foam. Visiting an ancient culture, trek in the awe inspiring Himalayas and get a tan - yep the weather is sunny! We love the excitement of this trip and it really is the best available in whitewater fun. The rapids here are a solid class IV- V at high flow, and a more classic III at lower levels. This true adventure can be rafted between October and December and February and April.

Bal Bahadur Tamang
Bal Bahadur Tamang was born in Solukhumbu. After completing his eighth grade, he left his village and went to Jiri to work as a porter. His first experience as a porter was to carry a big sack of rice from Jiri to Lukla. He has carried as heavy as 110 kg of load on his back as a porter.
After working as a porter for some years, he met a trek company owner in Lukla and started working for them as a porter. He was later afforded the opportunity to work as a guide. He took the opportunity with both hands. As a guide, his first assignment was to lead two Canadian trekkers and an Australian trekker to the Everest Base Camp.
At present, he lives with his family in Kathmandu. He has a 12 years old son and a 7 years old daughter. He is very fond of the mountains. So much so that as soon as a trek concludes, he cannot wait for the other to begin so that he can be around the mountains again.
his first assignment was a group of two trekkers from Canada and Australia whom he took to EBC…that being his first trip, it required him to ask a lot of questions to other fellow guides…he learnt a lot.
his family is now in Kathmandu….he has two kinds..a 12 yo son and a 7 yo daughter…and his wife…..when he is not on trek , all he does is wait for the next group to arrive so that he can go to the mountains.
He believes that it is important to give tourists a unique taste of places they visit- be it local animals or flora and fauna, celebrations or culinary experiences. He tries his best to always give the tourists a close view of the life in the Himalayas beyond just the majestic mountains.
Born in Burlang, Gorkha District, Ishwor first came to Kathmandu in 1999 to get enrolled in a college to complete his under-graduation.
It was during the final year of his under-graduation that he got into tourism to support his financial instability. A novice, he first went to the Annapurna Circuit as a porter carrying a 30 kg goods on his back. He did the same for half a dozen trips, An earnest man, he waspromoted to be the porter cum guide for Annapurna trek and later guided a trek to Everest Base Camp.
He lives with his family in Kathmandu. A family guy, he loves to cook at home and help with other household chores along with assisting his children with school assignments.
His friends call him a jolly fellow. He loves dancing to folk tunes...and occasionally sings during the recreational activities in trek. He says, "If we consider going to Everest Base Camp to trek, it is not just about Everest, the cultural and natural extravanza along the way is what make the trip special [...] The fun of the trek is not in the destination but in what you meet along that way…and in Nepal one meets a lot!"
He is a man of various stories and you can talk about a variety of topics with him.
