One of the best experiences to experience in the impressive and powerful river is the Tamor River Rafting. Beginning around Kanchenjunga, the Tamor River is a major river in eastern Nepal. The Tamor and the Arun join the Sun Koshi at Triveni Ghat to form the giant Saptakoshi. Spatakoshi flows through Mahabharat Range onto the Gangetic plain. Tamur is the sixth-largest river in Nepal. In addition, it is among one of the popular rivers which are highly suitable for adventure and water sports. Similarly, rafting is a popular sport carried out in this river. This river showcases the scenario of the Eastern part of Nepal. Besides, you will come to witness the life of a peaceful place that is untouched by modernization on the way to the raft. Therefore, the sides of the valley are wooded, with few villages and a glimpse of hills and natural landscapes along the way.

This river rafting is best suited to those with a sense of adventure and those who are seeking something different from the rivers of Nepal. In addition, if you are into an extreme adventure to the river of Nepal, then Tamur is the best option for you. The rivers in Nepal are directly flown from the Himalayas making it an ideal place for rafting. On the other hand, the Tamur river rafting can ideally be combined with trips to Chitwan National Park or treks in the Kanchenjunga region. In addition, the river has excellent beaches for camping. Besides, you will explore plenty of wildlife on the way, various species of birds. However, rafting in the Tamur river gives you the feeling of a wilderness expedition. The rapids are huge for grades 4 and 5- which are challenging and exhilarating. The volume of water ensures non-stop river action.

This trek takes you along the top of a 3000-meter ridge through beautiful woods and meadows. Similarly, this trip provides you with a view of magnificent Kanchenjunga, Makalu, and the Everest Massif in the far distance. Similarly, the trek lets you enjoy the alluring chirping sound of the birds through the lush vegetation of the thick rhododendron forest as well as the verdant meadows towards the heart of Eastern Nepal.

The rafting at Tamor starts from an early drive from Kathmandu to Basantapur via Dharan. From Basantapur, start trekking for about 5 hours to Mangalbare. Similarly, from Mangalore trek for another 5 hours to reach Guphapokhari. Likewise, pass through several places in Gorjha, Dobhan and finally get ready to have a wonderful rating experience at Tamor river. Rafting at Tamor takes you to camp at the bank of Kabali Dobhan, Koya, Dumre, Triveni Ghat, and finally to Chatara. The journey lets you witness the wilderness of nature and passes through several villages as well as explore the culture and tradition of people living around there.

Unique path trekking company has excellent staff on ground to make the trekking experience very enjoyable and memorable. The guide and porters go out of their way to make each and every member of the team feel safe and secured. Mr Babu the founder owner of the company is very responsive and is able to assist every member of the team with their individual needs. I would recommend engaging Unique Path for Himalaya trekking.

I like trekking with Unique Path, the guides of this company many times made my way comfortable and safe. I traveled with them to Lobuche, Mera, Island and other places solo and in the groups with my friends. Unique Path is a reliable partner and I plan to trek with them again in Langtang region this autumn.

I have used Unique Path three times and each time the team were all helpful, friendly and informative. Every aspect of our trip to Nepal was taken care of - Pick up at the airport to take us to our hotel. Next day the excitement of getting our trekking details and depending on the trip setting out with our guide and porter. My husband and I prefer to hike on our own, so we did no group options. Our itinerary was always followed exactly. When I go hiking in Nepal this company is my first point of contact. They are a great team and are totally recommended by me and my husband.

Unique Path is a great choice for anyone who wants to explore the Himalayas. My wife and I made several treks with Unique Path to Manaslu, Kangchenjunga, Tilicho Lake, and Mustang. It goes without saying, that the scenery in Nepal is stunning. Lots of opportunity to learn about the culture and religion and traditions of Nepal. The people we met along the way were engaging and wonderful. Unique Path's staff was fantastic throughout all the trips. They were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They arranged everything from transportation to accommodation to food. They also provided all the necessary equipment and guidance and handled all the permit applications. I highly recommend Unique Path trekking to anyone who loves adventure and nature. These were once-in-a-lifetime experiences that I will never forget. I am available as a reference. David

Myself and 2 buddies hired Unique Path Trekking to coordinate an EBC trek back in 2014. We couldn't have been more happy with the results...Everything went flawlessly and we had the adventure of a lifetime. Babu and his staff / guides / porters were top-notch and I highly recommend them to anyone who may be reading this.

As with all treks, there will be unforeseen circumstances and you’re always beholden to nature. So you want a guide and an agency that is not only experienced enough but also sensitive and quick to changes on ground. I am very grateful for the deep experience that our guide, Dambar had. He made us feel safe and constantly had everything under control despite the weather and some early sickness some of us had. Coupled with his sharp wit and deep knowledge, this became such an enjoyable climb that was filled with priceless stories that I can’t wait to tell the kids about. The porters too were a lively bunch that ultimately became friends and we shared lots of fun moments on the mountain together. Babu ensured that our arrivals, arrangements and any administrative hassles were smooth and out of our minds so we could focus on the climb ahead. Thank you Unique Path trekking & expedition. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a great time while knowing you’re in safe hands!

We were very fortunate to have Unique Path Trekking for our EBC with 3 Himalaya passes expedition, we were so happy/satisfied with Unique Path trekking. Babu ( owner of Unique Path Trekking) is so kind, knowledgeable and mellow personality so does their staff ( all guides and porters ). We had great time during this expedition in terms of lodging/food. We had large group ( ~ 18 ppl ) and believe or not no one had any single complain of food. Their guides and porters are so knowledgeable, smart, humorous made our entire expedition lots of fun. They take care of us with positive attitudes with smiley face in entire trip. I definitely recommend Unique Path Trekking for any expedition in Himalaya ( we're looking forward to go with them in Annapurna expedition in near future ). You will very glad/happy if you choose Unique Path and Trekking.

I just returned from a wonderful hike to Everest base camp with helicopter return. I was traveling solo am so grateful to Manager Babu and guide Suresh for looking after me. It is a trip I will remember the rest of my life. We started with a half day tour of Kathmandu and then flew to lukla on the next day to begin the trek. All the arrangements were made ahead of time and the folks unique path team constantly got on the phone to make sure the logistics went smoothly. Suresh kept a moderate pace and a great sense of humor. We made good time throughout the hikes and always got to the lodges on time and in daylight with energy left for the next day. The weather also cooperated this March and we had beautiful sunny skies and gorgeous Mountain View’s throughout the trek. I really could not ask for anything more and would very much recommend unique path
