Tamur River Rafting
|11||Oct-Dec||III to V||Mar-Apr||III to IV+||700|
The newly opened river in the eastern part of Nepal. The trip combines one of the best short Himalayan treks,amazing mountain views of the eastern Himalayan Range including Mt. Kanchanjunga and Mt. Makalu, and a challenging and exhilarating river journey.
Tamur drains the snows of the mighty Kanchanjunga massif, the third highest peak in the world and flows through a truly beautiful and unspoiled gorge. The superb sandy beaches, few villages and limited agriculture along the river provide Tamur with the most pristine rafting environment in Nepal.
Although the Tamur is still relatively unraveled, it probably has created more whitewater interest than any other commercial rafting rivers in Nepal. With three days of trekking through the foothills of the Himalayas followed by 120 km of exceptional whitewater thrill, Tamur is a highly recommended, active and exhilarating wilderness journey.
