Bhote roughly translates as river from Tibet so there are quite a lot of rivers with this name in Nepal. The river Bhote Koshi lays just 3 hours drive away from Kathmandu. It is originates in the Tibetan plateau from where it flows down steep gorges to Nepal in the south. Bhote Koshi River is adventurous for white water adventure which is very challenging river for rafting that provides some of the most exciting and kayaking in nepal. The river without a doubt the most exciting thing you can do without risking and social disease and one of the best two days river journey in the world. The river is steepest river that rafted in Nepal, with continuous rapid action making this river a full-on commitment and a huge adrenaline rush.
