About Jalbirae River – Also Known as Balephi Khola it is one of the smaller tributaries of the Sunkoshi, joining that river a short distance upstream of Dolalghat and only long 50km from Kathmandu. The river rises on the southern slopes of Dorje Lakpa(6990m) one of the mountains to the north est of Kathmandu and at the head of Langtang Valley.

Jalbirae trip can be an intense, fun, tight, technical and active trip however it does need the right water level so is only possible for a couple of months each year “Best season Oct-Nov,Feb-May”.
