Of course when rafting especially during the high water,
your safety is our main concern. Prior to going on the
water, our guides will give you a complete safety talk
and demonstration of how to deal with any situation that
might occur whilst on the river. Of course you will be
supplied with and required to wear a helmet and life
jacket at all times. Our guides make the trip fun for
you but at the same time they donít take unnecessary
risks. Though on some rivers we run high class rapids,
they all within the limits of our guides. Our guides all
highly qualified and experienced allowing them to give
you the thrills of the river in safety. Of course there
are occasions when accidents do happen, thatís why our
guides have full first aid training and know how to
handle such situations.
Safety comes first in every thing we do.
All our guides are skilled outdoorsmen, superb chefs and
great companions. Apart from their river skill, our
guides love what they do and their good humor and ready
smiles are sited as one of the highlights of the trip.
Our guides are trained to international standards and
have spent several years rowing for leading rafting
As a member of our guiding team, we take along a cook
who prepares for you delicious and healthy meals to keep
your tummy well fueled along the trip. Our cook is
qualified and knows all the precautions to take when
cooking for travelers and ensures a high standard of
food hygiene. He will cook for you a variety of meals
for the camp fire, you will be surprised as to what you
are offered and we assure you there is plenty of food so
you want go hungry.
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.
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.
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.
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.
