Tamor River Adventure

Combination of short trekking and Rafting

Tamor River raftingThe watershed for the River Tamor extends from the slopes of the mountains of the Umbhak Himal on the border with Tibet, across to the slopes of Kanchenjunga (the world's third highest peak). It is an outstandingly beautiful river with superb views of the Himalayas mountain range, including Mt. Everest, Mt. Kanchenjunga and Mt. Makalu. The river trip includes around 120 km of continuous 125 rapids, grade 3 to 4, with some graded -5, making one of the best white water expedition trips in the world.

The trip is organized by Cultural Treks & Expedition Pvt. Ltd. and starts with an internal flight or drive from Kathmandu to Biratnagar in the far South-East of Nepal. From there, we take a private bus to drive to Basantapur in the Tehrathum Region, where we camp overnight. The following day, we begin an awe-inspiringly beautiful 5 day trek to Dobhan through the remote Taplejung region of Eastern Nepal. From Dobhan we begin the exhilarating 5 day rafting and kayaking trip, which includes a day relaxing on a remote river beach or an optional one day trek visiting local villages.

Tamor River raftingThe best times to try to “Tame the Tamor” are in October and November and February to May. In addition to our scheduled expeditions, we can also organize a custom suited trip for groups of up to six or more person. We can accommodate your itinerary and any other requirements. Optional outgoing/return flights to Kathmandu or journeys to Chitwan National Park and treks in the Kanchanjunga region can also be arranged.
