We booked the four day kayaking clinic in their office in Pokhara. Since we were two, we were even able to choose our own starting date and did not have to stick to the fixed dates on their website. Thanks to that we could plan the trip perfectly with our other adventures in Nepal. On the first day we paddled on the lake and learned some basic techniques. We were a group of four participants and had two guides on the lake. This allowed very good coaching. We learned a lot during the first hours of practice. However, it would have been great to have an extra hour on the lake to practice the roll some more. The second day of the course started at the office in Pokhara. When we arrived, the coach was already packed with all our gear and after locking our luggage in the office, we directly left to the river. After a comfortable ride, the guides made everything ready and our tour started. On the river every participant had his own guide. This was perfect for our saftey and we learned a lot during the one to one coaching! On the river we stopped everyday for lunch. The guides provided delicious salads and cold meals for lunch. We were even offered cookies and watermelon, while they were preparing the fresh meals. In the afternoons, we stopped at beautiful river beaches. The guides set up a beautiful camp, which included our private tents, a big tarp for the guides, a big table for the buffet and a well built latrine. They brought a big stove to cook our dinner. We were very surprised by the super high quality of the food we were provided. The first day we were served delicious pasta with three different sauces (bolognese, vegan tomato vegetable, vegetable curry). The second evening we were treated with the most delicious french fries we had for a long time and pasta with cheese sauce. For breakfast we were offered a big buffet including toast with butter, jams, peanutbutter, omelette/scrambled eggs, porridge and even more. The rapids we passed got more and more intense during the trip on river. Thanks to the very good one to one coaching, we felt were safe the whole time and had a lot of fun! Thank you very much Paddle Nepal for an unforgettable experience and the perfect service!

I did the 4 day kayak course with Paddle Nepal and it was fantastic. The guides instilled confidence and pushed me to paddle all rapids. The gear raft provided a bailout option should you choose. The campsites were amazing and the guides cooked great food and took great care of the clients. I look forward to more trips with Paddle Nepal in the future.

I did the four day white water kayak clinic in March. I was the only person on the trip and appreciated that the company ran the trip with only one person. The river conditions were perfect for me as I have kayaked on flat and sea water but not on rapids. The guide Som was brilliant - highly competent and very friendly. I felt very safe and was entertained with his many kayaking stories! Wild camping by the river was a lot of fun and the team bought all the gear and set up and packed down quickly and professionally. The only slight improvement could have been the food which, as it was just me on the trip, was a bit cobbled together from granola bars and instant noodles. But overall a very good experience that I am really pleased I did.
