Day 02 : After having Breakfast we paddle down to encounter with challenge of "Meatgrinder"i.e. IV+ rapids. A few meters below here the Tamakoshi joins Sunkoshi on the left with a beach on the confluence. There is another beautiful Shiva Temple, where the local pilgrims come worship every morning. We camp here.

Day 03 : Until the confluence with the Likhu Khola, we have short easy rafting and rapids are only iii class. Thereafter, very soon we face the iv + rapid "High Anxiety" with a large hole on the left highway down and series of holes at the bottom. Swim for a while splashing each other and camp.

Day 04 : After facing a several 3+rapids, we stop for a while to buy some necessary provisions and beers. Be ready to paddle faster because we encounter with challenge of v class rapids "Harkapur 2" and "Harkapur 3", the hardest and biggest in this trip, which should be carefully scouted. Camp set and just think what a great day we have.

Day 05 : After the confluence with the Dudhkoshi river from Mt.Everest, the river becomes wide in size. But very soon we meet the "Jaws", iv rapid.

Day 06 : Today is the hard day as you will encounter with V class rapids"Rhino Rocks" and "Jungle Corridor" and a few continuous white water. Waterfalls cascade on both sides of the river. One water fall makes great spot for a team shower. We set camp and enjoy the tranquil night.

Day 07 : Relax yourselves because you paddle too much for couple of days.

Day 08 : Great waves not a big rapid so you can ask our kayakers to instruct you about how to roll.

Day 09 : Today we are going to face the last rapid of this trip "Bigdipper" is a series of huge standing waves. A few KM down we meet Arun and Tamur to form the river As Saptakoshi(seven rivers) and we will have numerous waves and whirlpools. For a short time we go to visit Barahi temple in order to pick a so-looked small rock. We finish our trip at Chatara and then drive back to Kathmandu.
