Incredible Rafting & Great Fishing at Sunkoshi River with ‘NGT’Bryan, John and Adam [United States]
We must admit that our fishing experience at Sunkoshi was amazing. It was one of the best moments of our lives. Very professional service was provided to us by Nepal Guide Treks. All the members of the company were very polite, caring and had to help nature. The rafting was totally fun, the rapids of the Sunkoshi river is not to be underestimated. Truly awesome feeling. We hooked a couple of good size fishes - it always feels good to feel some good size fish. Camping was well arranged and we had a lot of fun during our trip. We recommend Nepal Guide Treks for memorable and adventure trips in Nepal.
