Overview


Nepal as a holiday destination is plain fantastic. A kingdom steeped in history and dominated by the majestic Himalayas, it enthrals all who enter. One of the best ways to explore and discover this remarkable land is to get away from the towns and roads and embark on a trekking and rafting adventure – the snows of Kachenjunga feed this less known, but very spectacular tributary of the Sun Kosi, the Tamur River which offers amazing mountain views with an exhilarating river journey! The trek is one of the most spectacular in Nepal, with outstanding views of Kachenjunga, Makalu and Everest. Our amazing team of seventy porters who help carry all our gear into the river is truly a sight to behold. This is an expedition with it all! Other trips similar to this you may be interested in, are our Karnali Adventure or Sun Kosi Whitewater Rafting Trip.

After a hearty Breakfast each morning, our trek takes us over a 10,000ft pass above the sacred lake at Gopa Pokhara rewarding us with stunning views of Kachengunga, Makalu and the majestic Mount Everest. We descend through terraced rice paddies and mountain villages which lead us to the river.

My trip to Nepal with Water By Nature was absolutely fantastic, I loved it so much I’m going again this year! Great crew, very professional – and experts with a throw bag when I took an unexpected swim from the raft! Awesome time had by all.
