Arun River Rafting

Trip Overview

The Arun River is one of the mighty rivers in Nepal that rises from the Tibetan region. It is one of the major tributaries of the Saptakoshi River that flows into Eastern Nepal. Along the river trail, you'll find breathtaking views of Mt. Everest, Kanchenjunga, and Makalu, as well as remote settlements, valleys, and cozy beaches. 

The 70 km long river offers turbulent water current and huge water volume, making it one of the best Rafting sites in Nepal. This river rages with some class 3 and class 4 rapids. It can be technically challenging because of its rapid flow, making it appropriate for intermediate and advanced-level rafting and kayaking. The Arun River Rafting journey leads us to an isolated landmark where we will experience the roughest and fastest river current moving downstream, cutting through high Himalayan peaks and deep gorges. The months of October to December, as well as March to May, are ideal seasons for going rafting in the Arun River. 

The Arun River Rafting is an excellent alternative for a long journey for those looking for real adrenaline rushes and the thrill of encountering massive rapids in beautiful surroundings. Please contact Mountain Delight Treks and Expedition for booking and more information. 


We take a magnificent and scenic flight to Tumlingtar, one of Nepal's largest Tars (large plots of dry flat land). Following the flight, we walk to Kartike Ghat, which takes around 3 to 4 hours.
Today, we'll raft down to the Tumlingtar and then camp for the night.
We continue down the river and set up camp in the middle of the jungle.
After breakfast, we raft again and then spend the night in the camp set up at Bhite rapid. Today is a more difficult day, with a few good rapids, the most prominent of which is the left-hand bend rapid before the Ranighat suspension bridge. Rapids follow one after the other for the rest of the day, making it a tough and thrilling experience.
This day is more easygoing day than that of the previous one. The Arun River meets the Sunkoshi, which eventually becomes the Saptakoshi, an important river system in eastern Nepal. After an hour of floating, we arrive at Bara Cheta, a well-known Hindu shrine dedicated to Lord Vishnu. We float for another half hour to Chatara before returning to Kathmandu.
