This breathtaking combination of short trek and wild River rafting takes its flow from the melting snow of the mighty Kanchenjunga massif which is the third highest peak in the world. The remoteness of this river makes is truly beautiful and unspoiled as it roars its way through deep gorges and lush countryside.
Along the Tamur there are very few villages and limited agricultural areas. Its shores are dotted with pristine white sandy beaches which are ideal for camping. The Tamor offers spectacular white water. This trip involves a three day trek through the foothill of Himalayas. Combining the best of Nepal's rafting and trekking, this is an unforgettable journey. The river well earned its name, 'the jewel of the east'.
