The Tamur and its tributaries drain the snows of Kanchenjunga third highest peak in the world. The river is the sixth largest river in Nepal and seems to have a feeling of thrusting power and of being constrained by its valley sides.
Tamur and its tributaries have a steep gradient and are probably only of interest to expedition kayakers. Downstream from Dobhan the gradient is more reasonable, but the river profile is unusual in that the river is steeper in the last 30km before its confluence with the Sun Koshi. The Kabelli River adds about a quarter to the volume of the river but from here down there are no substantial tributaries.
The valley itself is beautiful and un-spoilt with relatively few villages and little agriculture. Valley sides are well wooded there are good beaches for camping and plentiful signs of wildlife. Local people are a fascinating collage of tribes and castes. Local don’t see lot of westerners and are very welcoming.
