Nepal has four major river systems with more than two hundred fifty sizeable tributaries. The major rivers are the Sapta Kosi in the extreme eastern part of Nepal the Narayani in central the Karnali in the west and Mahakali is far western part of Nepal. Arun is one of the mighty tributaries of Sapta Kosi. Its source is on the Tibetan Plateau, to the north of Kathmandu and it then swings in an easterly arc for some 200 km draining the Northern slopes of Mt. Everest and Makalu before cutting south through the Himalaya and into Nepal. It cuts through the Himalaya in some deep and awesome gorges that have fascinated explorers, travellers, geographers and river runners, and then flows almost directly south to join the Sun Koshi shortly before the Indian plain. Besides that Nepal has more than one hundred different dialects speaking ethnic groups and during the rafting meeting, people are part of the Adventure too.
