Location, Transportation and Timetable:
The journey to the starting for the rafting on Tamur River involves a 18 hour road journey by the management through All Trekkers Team by private minibus to Basantpur, further ahead by a 4 day trek to Dovan (put in point for Tamur river rafting/kayaking). The 135 km river action takes 5 to 6 days depending on season. The return journey from Chatara (the take-out point of Tamur river trip), is all the way back of 16 hours to Kathmandu. It is also possible to arrange a flight from Biratnagar (1 hour road journey from Chatara) to Kathmandu in personal request and additional cost.
The Tamur, powerful and impressive river, is the sixth largest white water rafting in Nepal. The scenery witnessed during the trek through the little known eastern part of Nepal to the put-in point is not less inspiring than the river Tamur itself. The sides of the valley are wooded, with only a few villages and very little agriculture glimpsed throughout the trip. There are excellent beaches for camping and plenty of wildlife. Tamur river rafting/kayaking gives you the feeling of a wilderness expedition!
The huge grade 4 and 5- rapids are challenging and exciting. The volume of water ensures non-stop river action.
The Tamur is best suited to those with a sense of adventure and seeking something a little different from the rivers of Nepal. In addition to the scheduled trips to the Tamur it is also possible to arrange a special trip to meet your needs. The Tamur is ideally combined with trips to Chitwan National Park or treks in the Kanchanjunga region are the attraction.
