Arrive in Kathmandu. You will be met by an AdventureX Guide and then taken to your hotel for the evening. Hot shower then out to one of the many local fine restaurants.
(No meals included)
Have the day to explore the amazing city of Kathmandu. Grab a taxi or rickshaw to visit some of the incredible temples and squares that make up this most vibrant of capitals. At 6pm we will have a pre-departure briefing then head off for a meal together.
After breakfast we jump on the bus and head for the Sun Kosi river. We will put on below the first damn on the river on the section officially classed as the Upper Sun Kosi. This is a lower volume class III+ run and is a good start to the river with little flat water. We will camp the night just after Sukute.
(All meals included)
A gentle day on the river as we tick off some of the 280kms of paddling this river covers. The flat sections are interspersed with gentle class II/III rapids. (All meals included)
Another steady day but as the volume of the river grows so do the rapids. We run several bigger class II & III rapids before running the big waves and holes of Punch & Judy. (All meals included)
This is a day of two halves. A few steady rapids in the morning lead up to the rivers largest rapid - Harkapour. This is definite inspection and portage for some. The rest will hopefully nail the lines and miss the holes! This is followed immediately by Harkapour 2, another intimidating but fun rapid if levels are high. We stop for lunch on the beach opposite the confluence with the Dudh Kosi river (the "Raging River Of Everest"). We continue downstream playing in the friendly rapids and will finish early. (All meals included)
We start fast today with several larger read and run rapids of class III/III+ including Jaws. We will stop and scout Dead Man's Eddy and run a sneak line river right if needed. More playing and fun rapids until we stop early again (approx 3pm). (All meals included)
Jungle Corridor. Lots of read and run class III/III+ with some interesting lines, boils and whirlpools - but lots of fun! We will stop and inspect Roller Coaster but this is quite an easy rapid. We will lunch on a waterfall beach and give people the chance to rinse off in the one of the jungles chilled power showers! Again an earlish finish (3pm) and camp on another spectacular beach surrounded by the jungle on all sides. (All meals included)
The last big rapid of the trip - The Big Dipper. Its then a quiet cruise down the confluence with the Tamur and Arun and the beginning of the Sapta Kosi, or the Seven Rivers. From this point it is a short 2 hours drive then a 55-minute flight back to KTM.
(All meals included, except any additional meals out in Kathmandu)
Free time for sight-seeing and retail therapy in Kathmandu.
After breakfast we take you back to the airport for your return flight home.
