We might have spare 2-3 days after the trek (end of November).

Any advice/experience with rafting in Nepal?

Check your insurance policy covers rafting. Book direct with one of the main reputable rafting companies (eg Ultimate Descents) rather than a 3rd party broker (eg a trekking agency). A 2 day trip on the Bhote Khosi would be a good choice - they normally start every other day or so, cost ~$120 but if you book at the last minute then you might be able to blag a discount.

Thanks.

I am not sure whether Bhote Khosi is really for us - no prior rafting experience, but it surely looks fun.

Well I had no prior rafting experience before I did the Bhote Khosi trip a few years go. If you have a decent river guide controlling the raft you should be fine.
