Overview

Sunkoshi River is considered to be a little hard river for Rafting, as there are smoothly sloping hills lies to the downstream. But it is one of the rich area for visit in terms of its variety of natural beauty along the river and peace and calm area made up of formation of rock to the entire trip.
