Overview

This kayaking course is meant for beginners (and intermediate) kayakers, to make them feel comfortable in the whitewater rapids. In three days you will learn all the basics you need for kayaking. You will learn about paddle techniques, safety, balancing and steering, rolling and about river flows and eddies. You practice these skills by slowly moving from gentle waves to a bit more challenging rapids. At the end of the kayaking course you will feel confident enough for grade III(+) rapids.

Day 1

After breakfast we drive to the starting point, just below Damauli, about (maximum) 2 hours away from Pokhara. This is the warmest river in Nepal, because it comes from underneath Pokhara. Every day will be a bit more challenging as the volume increases and the rapids get bigger.

The first day of this kayaking course you will mostly practice in flat water. You will learn basic paddle strokes, balancing and steering, rescue techniques and the Eskimo roll. The guides will also teach you about the river, river currents, eddies, holes and waves. They teach you how to cross the river, eddy-in and eddy-out, how to scout a rapid and move through the currents. You will have some lunch on a beach on the way. At the end of the day we camp on a remote beach surrounded by jungle. We unpack everything we need, set up our tent and the guides will prepare dinner.

Day 2

The next day after breakfast we continue our journey. You will start refreshing your memory and keep practicing and improving your new skills. We will experience a few fun rapids. The guides will show you the best way down the river. There is still plenty of flat water to practice your roll or just enjoy the scenery.

Day 3

The last day will be more challenging, with grade III(+) rapids. You can put all your new skills to the test. Our adventure comes to an end when the Trishuli river joins in, just an hour away from Chitwan. Have a nice lunch before driving back to Pokhara, to Kathmandu or Chitwan. The kayaking course ends here. 

Note: It's also possible to take this kayaking course in Trishuli river. Usually we take people on the Lower Seti, because this river is relatively warm, but Trishuli is also a great river for beginners. Please contact us for the possibilities
