Your Dream Vacation is Here
FUN FOR ALL
When you think rafting you don’t often think about children, but we do. We love nothing better than getting kids to fall in love with the river. Our family package takes you from Kathmandu or Pokhara, rafting on the slightly warmer Seti river for 2 nights 3 days with plenty of opportunity for the kids to swim or have a play on or in our kayaks. At camp we have plenty of games and things to see and do to keep everyone occupied or let Mum and Dad relax. Then it is just a couple of hours on a bus to Chitwan to spend 3 nights surrounded by the endangered one horn rhino, elephants, leopards and the elusive Bengali tiger.
This trip is an ideal way to avoid the big long bus journeys between tourist centres and see Nepali life from the river side. We provide child size equipment, wetsuits, lifejackets and helmets and take plenty of stops to enjoy the scenery, the wildlife (monkeys, birds and the occasional fish) and replenish energy (biscuits and juice). In Chitwan you can ride an elephant to get up close and personal with the locals, watch as the elephants take a bath and visit traditional villages.
PEDDLE AND PADDLE CHITWAN
A fantastic way to see Nepal is by mountain bike or from the river so why not combine both, all you need is experience of riding a bike (not technical riding) and a little bit of get up and go. We begin with a 4 hour bus journey to Gamaune then it is on to the bikes for a 5 hour ride off road to just below Damauli on the Seti River. Here you will relax after your ride, have dinner by the fire and camp under the stars. The next morning it is into the rafts for a two day trip through grade 2/3 rapids surrounded by amazing birdlife and plenty of places to swim or relax on the beach. On the river we camp at Saran Ghat, a small Gurung village in Chitwan with very friendly local people and who provide a home cooked meal for us at the end of our first days rafting.If you are short on time and want to do more than just trekking or fancy breaking up your journey to Chitwan National Park then this is a great 3 day trip. Available from Kathmandu or Pokhara we provide everything from transport to and from the trip, fully serviced bikes and helmets, all camping equipment (except sleeping bags), all rafting gear and expert guides and all food on the trip (from lunch on the first day to lunch on the last).
THE ORIGINAL PEDDLE AND PADDLE
This trip combines a thrilling day of downhill mountain biking with a day on one of the most exciting rivers in Nepal, the Bhote Kosi. After just a 2 hour drive you find yourself at one of the most stunning viewpoints over the Himalaya in Nagarkot. Once you have taken your photos and had a cup of tea (obligatory on any biking trip in Nepal) it is on to your wheels to head down a jeep track through lush green forest, local villages and a cheese factory! At the end of your 35km you get to relax and enjoy a hearty lunch. At our destination we will stop for some refreshment then it is back on to the bus for about 1 ½ hour drive to our camp site ready to relax by the river. Here we will enjoy good food and good company by the camp fire.
Next morning after a leisurely breakfast we head back on the bus to our rafting starting point. You’ll be kitted out with all the gear you need, given a short paddle and safety talk then it is onto the river to tackle the rapids. After 3 ½ hours of paddling we finish with a well-deserved lunch before heading back to Kathmandu. This trip is ideal for those who don’t have much time or are looking to fill a weekend around Kathmandu. It is a great way to see the mountains, foothills and beautiful gorge of the Bhote Kosi which runs from Tibet.
THE ULTIMATE PEDDLE AND PADDLE
Spend 4 ½ days taking on the might of the Annapurna’s on two wheels before heading down to the Kali Gandaki to ride wild rapids, this really is the ultimate peddle and paddle combination. The amazing views and rich cultural heritage will keep you enthralled as you ride from Jomsom to Maldungha, along great single tracks and jeep roads and combining some of the toughest climbs and best downhill in Nepal. From Maldungha it is onto the boats to tackle Little Brother, Big Brother and Rafters Refund rapids to name just a few. Sat in one of the most beautiful valleys in Nepal, this holy river changes every year after the monsoon and is a favourite of the guides.This 7 day trip is really a chance to do and see a lot of this magnificent region. Starting from Pokhara, a short flight to Jomsom takes in breathtaking views of Dhaulagiri and beyond, a great way to kick off this spectacular tour. This is a fully inclusive tour with all food and accommodation (camping during the rafting section), transport, fully serviced quality mountain bikes and helmets, all rafting equipment (including wetsuits) and most importantly expert guides provided. There is no better way to see this beautiful and enthralling area.
WHITEWATER, WATERFALLS AND CROCODILES
Experience the thrill of whitewater rafting, the adrenaline rush of canyoning and the peace and tranquility found when watching wildlife all in one trip. After a 2 ½ hour bus journey from Kathmandu we head on to the rafts for a one and a half day paddle on the Trishuli river from Charoudi, taking on class 3 and 4 rapids and enjoying our camp under the stars. On the second day we finish rafting at Jelbire, famous for its waterfalls and pools and a great place to canyon. After all the thrills and fun we get back onto the bus for a just a short 1 hour journey to Sauraha and the delights of Chitwan National Park. Here you can relax for the evening before heading into the jungle for the next day by elephant or jeep in hope of seeing the elusive Bengali tiger and the endangered one-horn rhino. With an option to spend 2 nights/3 days or 3 nights/4 days in Chitwan this trip is an exhilarating way to journey from Kathmandu and see Nepal from the river side.
