The trip starts with a calm and quiet float in the river but it gets thrilling once it reaches the high waters; the rapids can rise to enormous sizes and can be overwhelming.The Sun Koshi flows from the Himalaya to eastwards in Nepal through the great valley between the Mahabharat range Mountains. It forms the watershed for most of eastern Nepal and gathering strength from tributaries draining the highest mountains in the world it emerges onto the northern plains of India where it joins the Ganges.Rafting trips start right here from Dolalghat.
