Safety comes first in every thing we do.

You will receive three meals a day as well as tea and coffee and water and squash. The water is treated to make it safe for drinking. If you require something harder to drink, then you have to bring this yourself.

Transport
Naturally rivers donít flow in a straight line form one town to the next so you will be required to cover some road distance b to reach the start point of the river. You will be transported using private buses to the river. During the transport time you will be accompanied by the rafting team. Depending on the length of time the road trip takes, you will stop for food and toilets. Any snacks or drinks you require for the bus trip need to be provided by you.

Accommodation
Rafting is a fully supported adventure. You will be outside camping. Campsites will be on the river banks, normally on sandy beaches. Tents and basic sleeping mats will be supplied for you, you can sleep in them or outside as you choose. As the most rivers are away from the roads, all the equipment and food is brought along by the rafting team. They will set up the camp site with a kitchen and dining area, a camp fire for the night time and of course toilet facilities.

The weather
During the main rafting seasons in the Nepal, you will find the weather to be warm and with minimal rain fall. In February and after late October the weather can become cold especially during the evening times. You should bring along warm clothing to wear whilst not on the river. The rafting company will supply you with spray jackets to help keep you dry and warm whilst on the river at these times.

Best time for Rafting in Nepal
For rafting October through mid-December and March through early May are the best times. In this time you will have great mountains views, clear sky and rewarding natural scenery. In winter it is possible but you have to watch out for hypothermia. In this time you certainly should expect cold water and perhaps think in terms of wet suits and dry tops. Monsoon time is dangerous which brings heavy rains that flood the rivers most so people wouldn't want to be kayaking or rafting at this time.
