Kayaking in Nepal
Kayaking is usually an individual water sport. Kayaks are made from a special type of plastic and have floatation devices inserted to aid buoyancy. Kayakers move through the water with a double blade paddle, and are able to negotiate rapids and obstacles on the river.
With its wide range of rivers and wealth of challenging rapids, Nepal is the perfect destination for kayaking. Whether you are a total beginner or an experienced white water kayaker keen to tackle one of our more challenging rivers, we can arrange a fun and rewarding kayaking experience for you.
Himalayan River Fun s is continually expanding its horizons to include a select number of fully supported kayak expeditions to provide kayakers with the experience of a lifetime. We'll run some of the best white water in the Himalayas in a style that caters specifically to the needs of kayakers with maximum river time.
Why blast past the best cartwheel hole on the river when you can camp there and play till exhausted.
Himalayan River Fun staff are expert kayakers and instructors and they are always willing to share their enthusiasm and expertise. We encourage advance kayakers to join any of our trips. There is always an expert, safety kayaker along on any expedition so you need not worry about being alone on the river. You won't!
