Also known as the “Jewel of the East,” the first commercial run of the Tamur River was in 1990 and there were very few descents thereafter. Then in November of 1991, UDN ran an expedition down this river and proved to ourselves that all we had heard about it being an “exceptional trip” was right; and we have been offering it to our guests ever since. The trip combines one of the best short Himalayan treks with a challenging and exhilarating river journey. Tamur drains the snows of the mighty Kanchanjunga massif, the third highest peak in the world, and flows through a truly beautiful and unspoiled gorge. The superb sandy beaches, few villages and limited agriculture along the river provide Tamur with the most pristine rafting environment in Nepal.
Although the Tamur is still relatively untravelled, it probably has created more whitewater interest
than any other commercial rafting rivers in Nepal. With three days of trekking through the foothills of the Himalayas, followed by 120km of exceptional whitewater thrill, Tamur is a highly recommended, active and exhilarating wilderness journey.
