Sun Koshi means “River of Gold”. Sunkoshi River flows from the Mountains to the east of Nepal throughout the vast valley between the Mahabharata range. It is the source of water for most of the eastern part of Nepal. Sunkoshi river rafting begins from the Dolalghat. However, from Dumjabesi also trip is possible because of the Banepa-Bardibas highway. You can experience the different grades of water rapids, exciting and huge challenges as you process ahead. While rafting, you cannot see any towns or roads just the rhythm of water and the stunning view of the often seen villages and huge mountains and lush vegetation. You can feel the hospitality of the people while you are rafting as they say “Namaste” and goodbye by waving their hands.
