The Bhote Kosi is the steepest river rafted in Nepal. The river carves a steep and direct drop at the top that gradually eases to more placid streams and the calmer pools with a 46-km run at the Lamosunga dam. The rapids here are class IV-V at high flow, and III at lower levels. The Bhote Kosi is used for both rafting and kayaking. The river is steep and continuous with one rapid leading into another.Bhote Kosi is probably the most exciting short rafting trip in Nepal and best white water adventure in the world.
