This spectacular river is only available for those undertaking an expedition. The scenery on both the trek and river is unrivaled and unspoiled. The Upper Arun is one of the most powerful and respected rivers in Nepal, cutting through the Himalaya with deep and awesome gorges, lush valleys and superb riverside beaches.

The powerful current and large water volume ensure huge and impressive rapids are encountered the length of this river journey. The rapids can be challenging and technically complex. The Arun is an excellent choice for a long trip for those seeking real adventure and the thrill of encountering huge rapids in an idyllic setting. It is the first choice for those wanting an expedition into the wilderness.

Detail Itinerary

Day 01: Megan Besi 
As soon as we get on the river. From Tumlingtar, we get started at 9:30 AM after breakfast. Today is pretty smooth except for little rough ones of grade III/IV.

Day 02: Rafting
Today could be more challenging than the previous days. We come across quite a number of rapids one after another. The first encounter is a left- bend rapid, before the suspension bridge at Ranighat. A number of rapids follow after this, one after another we finally camp nearby blithe rapid.

Day 03: Rafting Final Day
Today is pretty smooth and relaxed compared to the previous days. The Arun River now merges with river Sunkosi to form in to a confluence of river Saptakosi, one of the major rivers of Nepal, which further flows to merge with the famous Gange in India. Float along Saptakosi for another half an hour and we reach the site of a temple in Bara Chettra a Hindu temple dedicated to lord Vishnu. From here, float for another half an hour to Chattra . Drive back.

Grade 1,

Easy: Moving water with occasional small rapids. Few or no obstacles.

Grade 2,

Moderate: Small rapids with regular waves. Some maneuvering required but easy to navigate.

Grade 3

Difficult: Rapids with irregular waves and hazards that need avoiding. More difficult manicuring required but routes are normally obvious. Scouting from the shore is occasionally necessary.

Grade 4

Very difficult: Large rapids that require careful manicuring. Dangerous hazard. Scouting from the shore is often necessary and rescue is usually difficult. Kayakers should be able to roll. Turbulent water and large irregular waves may flip rafts. In the event of a mishap there is significant risk of loss, damage and/ or injury.

Grade 5

Extremely difficult: Long and very violent rapids with several hazards. Continuous, powerful, confused water makes route finding difficult and caution from the shore is essential. Rescue is very difficult or impossible and in the event of a mishap there is a significant hazard to life.

Seasons

Winter early December to mid- March
The Nepal whitewater experience is still a warmer and sunnier one than in many parts of the world but there are longer shadows in the deep river valleys and a warmer sleeping bag is advised. Wetsuits may be needed.

Spring/Summer - late March to early June
The clear, still powerful rivers driven by spring snow melt are, on average, reduced by one grade less than their high-water maximum. The Karnali and Kali Gandaki, perfectly suited to this season, are great ‘all comers' rivers.

Monsoon - mid-June to early September
The Rivers are full and the few raft trips that are operated are limited to overnight programs on the Trishuli and Seti.
