Tamor a mighty River lies in the Eastern part of Nepal, it begin from Mt. Kanchanjunga and other numerous mountains of Eastern part. A trip to Tamor offers a thrilling experience combined trekking, Rafting and exploration through cultural heritage. The snows of Kanchenjunga feed a challenging less known relative of the Sun Kosi. The spectacular Tamor combines an exhilarating river expedition with one of the best short treks in the Himalayas. Picking up our team of fifty porters at Basantapur we trek for 3 days through ancient moss covered Rhododendron forests and sunlit meadows. The short trek is stunning, with great views of Kanchenjunga, Makalu and Everest. Descending to Dobhan we wander through charming Gurung villages and emerald fields of rice. Children play excitedly along the trail as we pass, snow-capped Himalayan giants surround us, and the champagne river churns and bubbles below. It gets even better - local people are a fascinating collage of tribes and castes who have perfected the brewing of their local drink, Tungba, to a fine art. At Dobhan three tributaries of the Tamur join their forces, combining the racing rivers of the high mountains to the north. Steep canyon walls enclose the river and the rapids are powerful and continuous. In the middle section the river opens up and there are beautiful white sandy beaches. The last few days where the river turns back to the west is phenomenal. Towering waves leap skyward, with seemingly endless rapids surging through steep canyon walls. Small fishermen's villages line the confluence of every major tributary, while wild monkeys watch from the jungle as we drift past. For people who want a longer trip that combines a spectacular short trek with intense whitewater, the Tamor is without a doubt the river to run.
