What We Provide

Before your trip, you will be invited to an orientation meeting in order to meet the rest of your paddling team, the guides and safety kayakers. At this meeting, there will be opportunities for you to ask any questions that you may have and discuss any personal requirements, such as a special diet or medical conditions that could affect your time with us.

We have our own private transportation to take you to and from the river. When our own coach is not available then we provide a privately booked alternative.

We provide plentiful, healthy and hygienically prepared food and drinks.

Along with our high-quality self-bailing rafts, we provide helmets, plastic paddles, wetsuits (during winter), lifejackets, dry bags, camera barrels, all necessary safety, and medical equipment. Tents and sleeping mats are also provided. Sleeping bags can be supplied upon request.

All our equipment is of the highest quality, clean and well maintained.

What to Bring

In some ways, it is best to bring as little as possible to the river. There are, however, some essential personal items that you may need.

Please bring:

  • Lightweight clothing that will dry quickly, Shorts,

T-shirt, Swimwear on the river.

  • Warm clothing for the evenings including a fleece or a pullover.
  • Sunscreen and lip protector.
  • Sunglasses (with retaining device) and/or a cap.
  • Towel.
  • Toiletries (environmentally friendly is best!) and any personal medication.
  • Flashlight.
  • Footwear that will stay on in the river, ‘Tevas’ or tennis shoes are best

You may also want to consider bringing:

  • Camera, spare batteries
  • Spare glasses
  • A book to read
  • Your diary and a pen!
  • Snack treats
  • A small amount of money
  • A positive attitude!

Please tell us if you are a non-swimmer or not very confident in the water. Also, it is essential that you inform us of any medical conditions that may affect your well being on the trip.

Don’t forget to request vegetarian or other special meals if required.

Minimum!

For Trekking ( Marsyangdi and Tamur Expeditions)

  • A day pack for the trek to the river. Long-sleeved thermal tops and bottoms (long underwear). •Light and medium weight weaves are handiest. •Walking shoes or lightweight hiking boots are a must. People who are used to walking long distances over uneven terrain will do fine with light hiking shoes or even running shoes. Some of the guides will do the trip in Tevas, but if you saw their feet, you’d opt for better footwear. Heavy mountaineering boots are more of a burden than a blessing.

Personal Spending

There is not a lot you can buy on a river in Nepal, bearing that in mind you will not need to take much in the way of money, say 500-1000 rupees/day (US$15). Chocolate, sweets, and cigarettes are seldom available anywhere on the rivers, so bring a few treats for yourself.
