We meet you at Kathmnadu airport and transfer you from airport to hotel. Introduction to local area.
We have a pre-tour briefing this morning before we take you on a fully guided tour of the capital city. We visit the many Temples and Palaces within Durbar Square before heading to Swayambunath - this incredible stupa sits on a hill overlooking Kathmandu. If you climb the many steps to the top, you have some incredible views over the city and out towards the surrounding Kathmandu Valley. After some browsing in the markets, this evening take the time to explore Kathmandu at night, sampling some of the many bars and restaurants.
We have an early start this morning, leaving Kathmandu by road heading east. After driving for approximately 2 and a half hours, we reach Dolalghat – the put in point on the river Sun Kosi. Upon arrival, we inflate the rafts and spend the rest of the afternoon getting expert training in rafting techniques from our highly qualified guides. Tonight we camp by the river.
These next six days are spent rafting through the spectacular Nepalese countryside. Each day is a combination of adrenaline pumping action travelling along some of the best white water in the world and gentle rafting through picturesque scenery. You really never know what you'll find around the next corner. At night, we camp at the side of the river on a sandy beach and enjoy a hearty meal.
At the end of your last day on the river, we pack up the raft and drive back to Kathmandu through the night, arriving early morning.
Today is kept as a free day, leaving you to enjoy Kathmandu at your leisure. There are many options available including visits to the nearby towns of Patan and Bhaktapur as well as the chance to experience an Everest mountain flight.
Your time is free today until we transfer you to the airport in time for your flight home.
