Learn to Kayak on the Sun Kosi
This trip is perfect for those who have a little bit more time and really want to get to grips with the basics white water kayaking. Our two week itinerary will leave you a whitewater pro and a new hobby for life!
Whether you are a total beginner or someone looking for bit more tuition to brush up on your kayaking skills, this trip covers it all. We will start this trip the same as our 4 days course on the Trisuli River where we will be based on our river side camp. Here (depending on your level of course) we will go over everything you need to know for the days ahead, rolling, bracing, crossing the river, edd-ing in and out, and choosing lines.
After a few days here we will then transfer back to Kathmandu for one night (make sure you grab a shower as it will be your last for a while!) before we head out on our favourite river trip in Nepal…the Sun Kosi! We will follow the itinerary of our standard Sun Kosi trip, but with an extra guide just for you. This river is actually the perfect place to learn on as it starts of very gently, letting you find your groove in your kayak before we hit the bigger rapids. By the time we reach these, you should have grasped the basics, but if it gets a bit too much we are fully raft supported, so for that odd rapid that is a little bit out of your ability (namely Hakapur the biggest rapid of the river!) you can enjoy it from the safety of the raft before jumping back into your kayak, perfect!
This river will test your newly found skills and you will learn so much, and did we mention the warm water!! Much better than learning in England where you will most likely freeze!!
