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

Kosi river system

The Kosi or Sapt Kosi drains eastern Nepal. It is known as Sapt Koshi because of the seven rivers which join together in east-central Nepal to form this river. The main rivers forming the Kosi system are – the Sun Kosi, the Indravati River, the Bhola Kosi, the Dudh Kosi, the Arun River, Barun River, and Tamur River. The combined river flows through the Chatra gorge in a southerly direction to emerge from the hills.

Course

The river drains the Mount Everest massif, the highest peak in the world.It begins just east of Gokyo Lakes and flows south to Namche Bazaar. 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.

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.
