Tamur River Rafting

A magnificent white water trip, one of the best in the world, approximately 130 rapids in 120 km The river flows through a beautiful and unspoiled valley and the trek to the start is one of the most scenic in Nepal. The Tamur and its tributaries drain the snows of Kanchendzonga, third highest peak in the world. The river is the sixth largest river in Nepal and seems to have a feeling of thrusting power.

Whilst it is possible to fly into Taplejung, we especially recommend the trek, a great way to start your river trip. The trek is not to arduous as it goes along the top of the ridge and then drops down to the river. We should recommend this particularly as an exciting paddle trip for fit and active rafters looking for the second time trip.
