- Trip Info
Tamur River is the sixth-largest river in Nepal and flows from the third highest peak in the world called Kanchanjanga. It is a mighty river full of steep gradients and a large volume of white water hailed from the Himalayas. The river is one of the newest but finest rivers for commercial rafting. However, it has already belted the reputation as a river for connoisseurs. The best part about the journey is that it starts with a four-day trek with an awestruck view of Mount Everest and Mount Kanchanjunga. This place offers a complete adventure trip in Nepal with the perfect ingredients of magnificent white water for rafting, the most scenic area for trekking, and the enthralling beauty of a pristine valley to soak into the local culture.
Tamur River offers non-stop river action due to its immense volume of water. The river will give you a ride for your life when it throws some 120 rapids in its 131 raftable kilometer length. Rafting in this river requires rafting experience due to the river grade. One can enjoy an action-packed rafting experience on this trip while crossing the most intense non-stop class 5/4+ rapids on the initial days of the trip. One will also enjoy relaxing while floating on the plains. The Tamur River rafting is also an excellent combination to experience the scenic beauty of the eastern part of Nepal. The side of the river is a wooded valley with unspoiled villages. It is also an excellent destination for bird viewing and wildlife expedition.
Tamur River rafting is best suitable for advanced rafters who like to taste something different than other rivers in Nepal. We can combine this area with trips to Chitwan National Park or treks in the Kanchangunja region. This trip could be the best multi-adventure trip in Nepal.
Best Season to Raft
The best season for rafting in this river is between September to December and January to May when the river is full of intense rapids and a massive volume of water. July to September is a Monsoon season where the excessive thrusting of water makes it impossible to raft.
