comes in from Tibet to Nepal through the south Himalaya with an altitude of 3,500m. It passes through amazing gorges following downstream very steep and rapid current, later joining together with Sun Koshi. Water current and volume makes the Arun river technically challenging and is appropriate for intermediate and advance level rafting and kayaking.
We pass through remote landmarks get view of beautiful high Himalayas, dense forest and birds and animals. Arun river rafting takes about 5 days – 6 days but several kayakers have also completed just in a day, but for relaxing journey we recommend you of at least 3 days.
