What to Expect
We will meet you in Thamel, Kathmandu at 6,30am to catch the tourist bus to Chauraudi, our starting place which is approximately a 3 hour drive (traffic dependant!) stopping for breakfast on the way. 

Once we arrive in Chauraudi, we will give you all the equipment you will need and a comprehensive safety briefing and practice session before we start our rafting adventure. 

We will raft for around an hour, enjoy some gentle rapids before pulling up on a beautiful sandy beach for a spot of lunch which your raft guides will rustle up for you (you'll be amazed what we can make on the banks of the river side!) 

After a half hour break, and now having been re-fuelled, we will jump back in the raft for the biggest rapids of the day! Once you catch your breath, here is chance for one last swim and a 10m cliff jump for those who are brave enough. It is then a short float to our camp, where we will give you a cup of hot tea and you can get changed before heading on to your next destination. Arrangements can be made to drop you back to Kathmandu, or onto Chitwan or Pokhara,just let us know when booking. 

All our trips have an appropriate amount of safety kayakers and all our guides are trained to the highest standards. 

No previous rafting experience necessary.

Couldn't recommend a trip with GRG more. The organisation was top notch. It was a pleasure dealing with Chrissy who was extremely friendly and helpful, making sure we were all prepped for the trip and to answer any questions. The monsoon had been particularly bad and stuck

I highly recommend taking a trip with GRG while you are in Nepal. A few friends and I took a 1 day (~3-4 hour) rafting trip on the Trisuli river about 3 hours west of Kathmandu and had a wonderful time. It's a great way to get out of the city and experience some of Nepal's

Grg is a solid and honest company. I’m sure their rafting trips are great. I did the 4 day kayaking clinic with them. It was a good and challenging experience. The guides and staff at the camp are all friendly, professional, and hard working. They give you lots of good food and

Hey Adam Many thanks for taking the time to write such a thorough review. We really appreciate it. We are so happy that you felt so cared for by the staff and that you felt we were such an honest outfitter. Our camp is basic, we constantly working on it (before the land, we used to hold our clinics on a beach and set up a camp each time, so this is a step forward but still has a lot of work to be done on it!). The pool isn't broken - it's still being made! We need to tile it, and then it will be ready for use. We are hoping by the end of the monsoon it will all be ready, and then we can run roll clinics in it for clients that would prefer to use the pool rather than the river. And the shower block should also be finished ready for the next season which will overcome the shower issue as well. I am sorry for the inconvenience. We do advise people before booking onto the kayak clinic that the camp is basic. And you are right, that at this time of year the river is very muddy due to the monsoon. The water levels rise dramatically, this is why when booking we recommended if you were able to not join until October when the water levels go down considerably and the water clears. The best time of year for learning to kayak is March - April and October - November. Thanks again for your review and we are happy that you enjoyed your experience overall. Maila

This trip was absolutely fantastic. each of the guides were friendly, helpful and brilliant kayakers/rafters. I opted to do this trip in a kayak instead of in a raft as did a few other members in my party. there was a modern fleet of boats to choose from I ended up in a burn Mk2

Hi, wow, thanks for taking the time to write such a great review. We are so pleased when people love the trips they join and the Sun Kosi is always our most popular. We were sorry that you had a bad back through the trip but it was great you could carry on in the raft and not miss out. Looking forward to welcoming you back already. Thanks, Maila
