Rafting Expeditions around the world
Travelling on rivers gives you access to the most secret places on Earth.
Some places are accessible only by water, where the roads don’t reach. Our expedition is a blend of nature, adventure, action, culture and team spirit. There is no need to be experts in rafting to join us! Just come to the preparation day on our base in Italy. The people who chose this kind of holiday usually are energetic and flexible, curious and with a positive attitude. If you have already done a little bit of camping, that helps and if it is your first experience, you will learn quickly. Everyone participates actively not only in life on the river, but also in pitching up the tents, loading and unloading the rafts every day, and who wants can help in the kitchen! It is a simple life, in tune with the elements, in good company and in an unique and totally remote place.

One of the few unspoiled remaining paradises. The Tamur River comprises all the fascination of unexplored Asia. The adventure departs from Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. Kathmandu is a multicoloured city, a place of wonderful artisan and local handy craft markets. It is a must see for all avid travellers, and the departure point of many Himalayan expeditions.
In two days we cross all of Nepal by bus to reach the unexplored and mysterious Far East Nepal, across small villages, Buddhist temples, puzzled looks, friendly smiles. Another three days trekking, through astonishing views such as Everest, Makalu, Kanchenjunga and finally we will reach the secluded valley of the TAMUR. The river welcomes us with its awesome crystal blue & white rapids. Tamur, the top world class rapids! We have 6 days to get to know its secrets, navigating over 200 km entirely self supported.

Preparation and packing for the porters, starting the four days trekking traversing the mountain chain of the Milke Danda. Like on the river, also during the trek we spend the nights in the hotel 1000 stars. We pass the villages of Chouki, Gurpha Pokhari e Gorjia walking in altitudes between 2500 – 3500m. that means no problem as far as altitude sickness, but with very cold temperatures during the night. We get rewarded with the most stunning views of Everest, Makalu and Kanchenjunga. And finally we arrive at Dobhan, where we will leave the porters, set up our first river camp, pump up the rafts and go for a swim in the cristal waters of the Tamur.
