9 days rafting on the river of Gold during a 12 day all inclusive stay in Nepal! This rafting trip listed in the top 10 in the World! SUNKOSi means River of Gold, so called after the gold that is sometimes panned from the river gravel or perhaps the orange silt colour it gets in monsoon. It is known by river runners as the BIG ONE! It rises near Tibet and rushes eastward to form the watershed of Eastern Nepal. In high water it is not for the faint hearted.

SUNKOSi means River of Gold, so called after the gold that is sometimes panned from the river gravel or perhaps the orange silt colour it gets in monsoon. It is known by river runners as the BIG ONE! It rises near Tibet and rushes eastward to form the watershed of Eastern Nepal. In high water it is not for the faint hearted.

The river is wide and fast with bumpy pressure waves fed by the monsoon big holes and massive waves are the order of the day but with a skilled raft guide and a committed crew working as a team you should make it through most of them without flipping. Due to the pool drop nature of most of the rapids flipping the raft generally results in the pieces being picked up in a big lake like eddy downstream.

The Sun Kosi flows through stunning terrain occasionally coming across Rai and Limbu villages, this is un-spoilt rural Nepal at its best. The banks have broad sandy beaches ideal for camping and the river gives us little surprises such as the occasional waterfall where you can shower and relax whilst the water pummels your tired muscles. The banks of the lower river are heavily forested with troops of monkeys and exotic birds.

This is really one of the best rafting experiences in the World and is regarded to be one of the top 10 rafting destinations in the World!
