Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dudh Kosi (दुध कोसी, Milk River) is a river in eastern Nepal.

Course

The river begins just east of Gokyo Lakes and flows south to Namche Bazaar. There, it is joined by the Bhote Kosi, which drains the south and west of the Mount Everest massif. Continuing south, the Dudh Kosi exits Sagarmatha National Park and passes to the west of Lukla. The Lamding Khola joins the Dudh Kosi to the southwest of Surkya and continues its southerly course to Harkapur, where it joins the Sun Kosi river and forms the Kosi River.

Kayaking

The river is extreme white water. Normally it can't be used for watersports. The first kayak trip was made 1976 by a British expedition under the leadership of Mike Jones.
