Our Arun River Rafting packages takes you through the stunning Arun Valley, with its bright green valley and Himalayan backdrop. Arun River Rafting takes place on the most powerful and appreciated rivers present in Nepal. Arun River cuts from side to side and the base of the Himalaya surrounded by bottomless and overpowering gorges, prosperous valleys and excellent riverside beaches. Our itinerary for the Arun River Rafting takes 8 days but it can be arranged according to the convenience of explorers (i.e. you) and their interests. Some take extra time and complete the journey in 9 days, while others do it in 7. The river rapids can be more challenging and technically complex than other rivers of Nepal, making the trip a bit more exciting. The river grade is ranked as IV.  The starting point of Arun River Rafting is Tumlingtar and its ending point is Chatara. An outward travel time is 3-5 hours where as its return travel time is 6 hours. This package is relatively short and is most refreshing. You will forget about all your worries you might have for a few days while you are on the river. This package can be completed during all months of the year.
