Wild, steep, and relentless are the best words to describe the short run down the Bhote Kosi. On this river, only a few hours' drive northeast of Kathmandu, nonstop Class IV and V rapids keep adrenaline junkies screaming for more. The big waves and big rocks add up to big fun if you're an experienced rafter. However, despite what rafting companies in Kathmandu might say, you really don't want to make this your first-ever rafting experience. The Bhote Kosi run usually consists of two separate stretches, one above and one below a dam on the river. At night, you'll stay in a riverside lodge, where you can recount the day's adventures over big bottles of local beer. By the way, in Nepali, "Bhote" means "Tibet", and this river does indeed originate in Tibet.
>>BEST SEASON: October to december and february to may.
