Time for Rafting…………….. September 11, 2011

What is raftingRafting is cruising down a gushing river in an inflated rubber raft overcoming rapids and waves that comes crashing on you. It is what we call ‘enjoying life’A Day on RaftWe are woken by the cheerful sound of the birds along with the sun daring you to challenge for yet another day of rapids. After a hearty breakfast prepared by our staffs, we start rafting. We paddle through the high and lows of the rapids and stop in between to scout the rapids as well as to capture these beautiful moments on pictures. We stop for a leisurely lunch break around the middle of the day along the sandy beach of the river. We explore the various temples and villages, waterfalls and other interesting sights. The length of time spent rafting each day depends on our choice of spectacular campsites. Typically we are on the water for 4-6 hours. Camping on isolated sweeping white sandy beaches and sleeping in tents under the stars and open sky is an ideal introduction to the great outdoors.Points to ponder1.Always follow what the river guide tells you and respect his judgements.2.Valuables of any nature should be left at the hotel.3. Shorts, T-shirts, comfortable shoes and a spare pair of clothes to change, sun creams, sun hats and sun glasses, which can be tied at the back, are recommended.

4. Life jackets and safety helmets are a must.

5. Should anyone fall into the rapids, do not panic. Try to float on your back with the feet downstream. Hold on to your paddle, which will make you more visible.

Gifted with a multitude of rivers that that are perennially fed by the Himalayas, Nepal is one of the richest countries in water resources. In recent years avid river runners have taken notice of the true potential of the Himalayan river and within a short span of time it is earning a reputation as one of the best places in the world for white water rafting. Though only ten rivers have been opened by the Government for commercial rafting, Nepal offers a unique opportunity for all to taste the thrill of whitewater rafting. There is something for everyone – slow moving rivers with idyllic sand beaches ideal for relaxation to high action big volume rapids that has your adrenaline pumping. Spectacular scenery, rich culture and spectacular rivers make the trip gratifying.

Teamwork is crucial to the success of any true adventure. The guidance and instruction of our staff enables you to play an active role in paddling your raft successfully through exhilarating whitewater. From rigging the rafts in the morning to putting up the tents and cooking, you are totally involved in the adventure. Most trips include a layover day when people can wander to nearby villages, explore, learn to kayak, play volleyball, or just relax on a sunny beach with a book, a chance to do as much or as little as you wish. The pace of the trips is very relaxed, we have plenty of time for rest, exploration and discovery.

We put a lot of time and effort into preparing superb, hygienically prepared, wholesome and abundant food, as rafting promotes a healthy appetite. We encourage everyone to learn the art of camp cooking, and most people enjoy the opportunity to be involved. We always offer a vegetarian option and can cater to special diets.
