About Balephi Khola

This river is one of the smaller tributaries of the Sun Kosi and is a lovely tight boulder strewn river with crystal clear water.


The river rises on the southern slopes of a mountain called “Dorje Lakpa”, at 6990 metres high. You will enjoy nice continuous white water with class 3 and 4 rapids all the way down to the confluence of the Sun Kosi River.


Paddle the Balephi Khola river taking in stunning views of Everest on a clear day. The Balephi Khola is one of the smaller tributaries of the Sun Kosi and is a lovely tight boulder strewn river with crystal clear water. We will paddle this lovely jewel of a river down into the Sun Kosi. Take out after fantastic days paddling and drive back to Kathmandu in a private bus approximately 3 and half hrs. If you are looking for longer river trips or if there are any other activities we can organise that for you, you just need talk to our friendly staff in our Thamel office.
