The Bhote Kosi / Upper Sun Kosi (during high water) is without a doubt the most action packed white water run in Nepal. The river drops off steeply providing continuous stretches of powerful class III-IV white water. Boulder gardens, small waterfalls, steep chutes and 90-degree bends present a multitude of hazards to be negotiated. The Bhote Kosi it is a technical river requiring an active crew. This run is not for the faint hearted !
At the end of an action packed day, you can relax and watch the sun set from the thatched bar of the Sukute Beach Resort or, the porch of your spacious, safari style tent. This is the place to mellow out! We guarantee that no one will try to sell you anything! Stay as long as you want, sunbathe on our sandy beach, read a book in peace, sit and chat around a fire, play backgammon in the bar, or enjoy the stars and sounds of the river.
A beautiful steep mountain river only a few hours drive from KTM offering two days of intense challenging activity.
