Tamur River Rafting

Tamur River Rafting

Tamur River Rafting

Rafting in Tamur River means a 3 day trek along a ridge full of rhododendron forest and sunlit meadows, sum-mating at 3000 meters with exhilarating views of Makalu, Everest and Kanchenjunga then down through emerald and golden terraced fields of rice and mustard to Dobhan for six or seven days on the river itself.

The power of three tributaries joining force gives a wild push to the inflatable rubber raft as you start down this river, giving a hint of what to expect next. 120 rapids in 120 kilometers makes Tamur River Rafting more than a thrill a minute. Stopping at night to enjoy the colorful traditions of the local tribes, one might try their traditional fermented millet drink, Tungba, the brewing of which they have perfected to a fine art. The best section is the last few days, when the river turns back to the west and becomes steep and powerful, with towering waves leaping skyward and water shooting through canyons like an Olympic bobsled before cascading out into the Sun Kosi and eventually on wards to the sea.
