Upper Seti River - 1/2 Day
Only 30 minutes from Lakeside Pokhara, this “short & sweet” rafting adventure offers 1 ½ hours of non-stop adrenaline filled class III+/IV rapids. This fairly technical river offers fantastic Annapurna mountain views, crystal clear Himalayan white water, and a beautiful gorge decorated by suspension bridges & prayer flags blowing in the wind.

Beginner Kayak Clinic - 4 Days
Our classic beginner “kayak clinic” has been designed to get a first timer feeling comfortable and competent in whitewater in only 4 days. Starting on Pokhara’s spectacular Phewa Lake with views of the majestic Annapurna Mountain Range, followed by 3 days on the moderate Lower Seti River, ending near the Chitwan National Park – this is the perfect way to learn a foundation to white water kayaking while embracing beautiful Nepal and our spectacular riverside scenery and cultural landscapes...
Kaligandaki River - 3 Days
Named after “Kali” the goddess of destruction, the Kaligandaki is said to be one of Nepal’s most holy rivers. Beginning its journey high on the Tibetan Plateau in Mustang, the “Mighty Kali” plunges down through the Himalayas, carving into one of the deepest gorges in the world between Dhaulagiri and Annapurna.
We have used Paddle Nepal several times over the past 5 years bringing youth groups and volunteer programs into Nepal. Paddle Nepal is clearly the most professional adventure company we have had the pleasure to work with in the Himalaya including Bhutan & India! They provide honest and efficient pre-trip advice, high quality trips that are fun and safe with professional guides and top of the line equipment. We highly recommend Paddle Nepal for Rafting, Learning to Kayak and Canyoning adventures in Nepal. We just wish they would start Trekking too!!! Kevin Bernard - UK
