Tamor River 21 Days


The river Tamor lies in the East of the country and is fed by the waters coming down from Mt. Kanchanjunga. Tamor has some excellent Class IV and Class V rapids ensuring a good rafting trip. Ideal for adventure seekers, this is another trip that involves a flight to Biratnagar in the Terai, followed by a long drive after which a four-days trek leads up to the put-in point. This trek is ewarding with great mountains views. The river trip is exciting with a continuing series of rapids especially when going through a deep canyon. But along the way, there are places to relax, swim and laze about the camp. Towards the end of the trip, there are challenging rapids with towering waves until the river finally turns peaceful allowing the raft to float gently to the put-out point. This river run can be combined with a visit to the Chitwan National Park for wildlife safari or a trek in the less visited Kanchanjunga region. 

The flight from Kathmandu to Biratnagar itself promises grand panoramic views of the Himalayas. After stopping at a delightful little town of Hile on a Hilltop, the next day`s drive is through a picturesque ridge all the way to Basantapur. Before the river is reached there are superb views of 8,000m peaks like Kanchanjunga, Makalu and Mt. Everest.
