Nepal has four major river system with more than two – hundred fifty sizeable tributaries. The major rivers are: – The Sapta Kosi in the extreme eastern Nepali; the Narayani in the central Nepali; the Karnali in the western Nepal and the Mahakali in the far western Nepal. Arun rivers are one of the tributaries of river Sapta Kosi that flows in the Eastern Nepal.

The beautiful Arun River in Nepal’s springs up from the Everest region joining with the Sunkoshi on the way and snakes its way onto the Indian plains in Bihar. Along the path, the Arun rambles through spectacular mountain scenery, remote villages and farming valleys. At its peak flow in places, this river truly rages with some rapid graded as class VI. In other places, the Arun meanders along at a more sedate pace allowing you time for relaxation and to enjoy your pristine surroundings.

Due to Arun’s remoteness getting there is all part of the action. You can travel the 500 km over two days by road or fly to a nearby airstrip. From the bus or airstrip it is four hours trek to Kartikeghat, your put in point. Though difficult to get to, it is certainly one of the most rewarding river trips in Nepal.
