The Bhotekosi is best described as a liquid rush! As steep as it gets with constant rapids, this two-day trip is a full body workout and the skill and determination of the paddle crew is tested to the limit. The Bhotekosi, roughly translated as ‘river from Tibet’, although little more than a mountain stream, has one of the steepest gradients of any raftable river in Nepal. Snow Giants loom over as the clean, fresh water roars and dodges its way through narrow canyons and the remnants of a huge, Giants’ boulder-tossing contest! Shooting down glistening shoots into bubbling, frothing pools, the raft twists, turns and plunges to the exhilarated shrieks of the crew. The Bhote Kosi is one of the most technical rivers in Nepal, providing continuous, challenging rapids from start to finish
