Active Adventure


Your two-day liquid odyssey begins at The Borderlands Eco Adventure Resort. This border oasis is situated just south of Tibet and has exclusive access to the highest raft put-in point, which means more whitewater and one of the finest rafting and kayaking environments in the world.

Ultimate Descents Nepal , has spent more time on the Bhote Koshi river than any other rafting company. Guides are certified in river rescue and first aid. State of the art equipment and years of experience means you can happily bet on one of the safest and most exciting river journeys in the country. A rafting or kayaking experience in Nepal is a truly amazing experience.

Typical Day

Our trips meet at 0600 am (always make a point of checking this as it can change depending on the time of the year) at our office in Thamel. All the restaurants are closed at this time, so bring a snack for breakfast. Once we have everyone ready, we get on our chartered bus. The bus takes us out of Kathmandu Valley, through rice fields and the ancient town of Dhulikhel.

On a clear day, the entire Himalayan range is clearly visible from the summit. From here the road drops 1,000 meters to the village of Dolalghat on the banks of the Indrawati River. Then we push up north towards the Tibetan Border and the steep water that tumbles down from the plateau.

After an early lunch, everyone puts on a lifejacket, spray-jacket and helmet, ready to begin their adventure. Most of the people we take down the river have never been on a raft before and our guides gear the safety talk to neophytes.

Rafting on the Bhote Koshi is a full body activity, with much more than mere paddling. You learn how to throw your body weight around the raft in desperate, yet effective attempts to swing the raft around boulders and through the hydraulics. The Bhote Koshi is a steep mountain river with a long series of 3+ to 4- deeps.

Just before we reach the village of Barabise on this day, the journey ends and we load all the boats onto our bus and drive back up to the top of the river where our camp is waiting for us. While dinner is being prepared, take time to sit beside the river or play volleyball. It's an excellent time to have a beer, and swap and refine stories.
