Sunkosi (On A Quest for Gold) - 10 Days


The SUNKOSH means River of Gold, so called after the gold that is sometimes panned from the river gravel or perhaps the orange silt color it gets in monsoon. It is known by river runners as the BIG ONE! It rises near Tibet and rushes eastward to form the watershed of Eastern Nepal. In high water it is not for the faint hearted. The river is wide and fast with bumpy pressure waves fed by the monsoon big hones and massive waves are the order of the day and most rapids have only tow results - flip or trip - but certainly won't get through without the river letting you know who is Boss!

The Sunkosi Thunders through isolated terrain occasionally coming across Rai and Limbu villages. This is un-spoilt rural Nepal at its best. The banks have broad, sandy beaches ideal for camping and the river gives us little surprises such as the occasional waterfall where you can play while the water pummels your tired limbs. The banks of the lower river heavily forested with troops of monkeys and exotic birds.
