The spectacular Tamur combines an exhilarating river expedition with one of the best short treks in the Himalayas.

Starting at Biratnagar we trek for 3 days upto a 10,000ft pass above the sacred lake. With the most magnificent views of Everest and Kanchenjunga, we descend into the lush valley arriving at Dobhan to start our amazing river expedition. The first rapids are powerful and continuous, hemmed in by steep canyon walls. In the middle section the river opens up and there are beautiful white sandy beaches. The last few days where the river turns back to the west is phenomenal. Towering waves leap skyward, with seemingly endless rapids.

  Brilliant white water on the Tamur
For people who want a trip that combines a spectacular short trek with intense whitewater, the Tamur is without a doubt the river to run. An unmissable trip!
