The Tamur and its tributaries drain from the World's third highest peak - Mt. Kanchenjunga. Tamur is the sixth largest river in Nepal and seems to have a feeling of thrusting power, and of being embraced by its valley sides.
The Rafting journey to the put-in point on Tamur River involves an 18-hour road journey followed by a 4-day trek to Dovan (the put-in point for Tamur River rafting/kayaking). This is a 135 km river action trip that takes 5 to 6 days to complete. The return journey from Chatara to Kathmandu is 16 hours (the take-out point of the Tamur river trip). It is also possible to arrange a (1hour) flight to Kathmandu for an additional cost. Tanur follows the beautiful valley with relatively un-spoilt villages and little agricultural farms. Both sides are heavy jungles, and there are good beaches for camping and plentiful signs of wildlife and vegetation. In addition, the local people are a fascinating collage of tribes and castes. Locals don’t see a lot of westerners, and that’s why they welcome you very respectfully. This is most appropriate for those with a sense of adventure and seeking something a little different from the rivers of Nepal. It is also possible to arrange a special trip to meet your needs. This is ideally combined with trips to Chitwan National Park, or treks in the Kanchanjunga region. The huge grade 4 and 5- rapids of Tamur River Rafting/Kayaking give you a challenging and exhilarating feeling of a wilderness expedition!
Tamur and its tributaries have a steep gradient and are probably only of interest to expedition Kayakers. Downstream from Dobhan, the gradient is more reasonable, but the river profile is unusual in that the river is steeped in the last 30km before its confluence with the Sun Koshi. The Kabelli River adds about a quarter to the volume of the river but from here down there are no substantial tributaries. We “Nepal Mother House Treks” are glad to organize this Rafting / Kayaking trip considering our client's safety and relative enjoyment.
