Rafting in the River Dudh Koshi

Rafting in the River Dudh Koshi

The  Dudh Koshi  flows down  from  the  Everest region. It flows alongside the trail to the Everest Base Camp,  so many trekkers and mountaineers are familiar with this river. The lnku  and Hongu rivers flowing in changes the flow of the river dramatically but the valley widens out and the gradient drops. Many Class III and IV rapids are encountered as the river flows down to rabuwa. This section inloves quite a bit of portage and reportedly quite challenging. Finally it eases down until  it teaches  the  Sun  Koshi River which  is another good  river  for rafting.  

The  Dudh Koshi is a great river with stunning views of the Kumbhu  Himal. As the trail follows the river, there are  many  lodges  around here. For commercial  rafting, the last 32 km of the river is recommended after which it flows  into  the Sun  Koshi. Hence a combined Dudh Koshi-Sun Koshi river trip is ideal,  using the former as the starting point.                                          ·
