Arun River belongs to Koshi river system. The easiest way to get to the river is fly to Tumlingtar. Alternatively one can drive for 1 1/2 days and then trek for three days. The Arum is one of the more advanced rivers in Nepal, and is for only three days on the river but the scenic mountain views and the unique wildlife makes it worthwhile. For first time paddlers, a trip down the Trishuli is an experience not to be missed (class 3 to 4+ in high water).While you learn to handle the river’s well spaced, straightforward rapids, a panorama of stunning gorges drifts quietly past. During the monsoon, the river promises a more challenging ride, with powerful rapids and whirlpools. This trip can easily be combined with a visit to Chitwan National Park or Pokhar
