As well as having some of the finest rivers in the world, Nepal is the perfect place to learn and develop your kayaking. Whether you’re a complete beginner or someone who just wants to brush up on their whitewater skills, this trip covers everything and more.

Situated on the banks of the Sun Kosi River, our Beach Camp is a superb place to base our first couple of days coaching. From basic strokes, ferry gliding and Eskimo rolls, to reading the rivers and picking your lines, you will have intense coaching and supervision by BCU qualified instructors based on your ability – to ensure that you really get the most from the trip.

Starting with a couple of single day trips on the Sun Kosi followed by a Whitewater Safety & Rescue day, we then progress onto 2 fully supervised Multi-days trips. The magnificent Sun

Kosi river is regarded as one of the top 10 river journeys in the world. Combined with the warm blue water of the Seti Khola these are the perfect introduction to real whitewater kayaking. Each with their own characteristics, these rivers will allow you to test your new skills and technique and offer a fabulous trip for both beginners and novice paddlers alike. With a chilled beer around the campfire in the evenings, a multitude of stories and we guarantee lots of hilarity – this really will be a trip to remember and the perfect introduction to whitewater kayaking!

After a hearty breakfast we will transfer to the Beach Camp perched on the banks of the Sun Losi River. This is an amazing set-up with a beach, bar and showers on the riverside. In the afternoon we will kit out the kayaks and introduce you to the Sun Kosi River. Our qualified instructors will guide you according to your level.

Having practised and learnt all the basics we load up our rafts and head off down the Sun Kosi river for 5 days. We take to the water, scouting and running the rapids, all the time becoming more confident with our kayaks. The flow of the Sun Kosi is interspersed with some great rapids making it an ideal place to work on our river reading and running skills. We drift the flatter sections, taking in the amazing surroundings and magnificent views of the surrounding forests and mountains. Upon reachin the town of Harkapor we take out of the river and head back to Kathmandu for a well earned freshen up and a night in a real bed!
