Family Rafting & Kayaking Holidays in Nepal

Family Rafting & Kayaking Holidays in NepalThe Seti River is one of the most beautiful and pristine rivers in the Himalayas. With dense remote jungle, exquisite sandy beaches and Class II-III whitewater running, this is the perfect river for beginner kayakers. Our instructors are some of the best whitewater paddlers and kayak instructors in the world, with a strong history of running rivers worldwide. The clinics are supported by state of the art rafting equipment which carries all personal gear, camping and other supplies down the river to our campsites.

Spend two nights in the Royal Chitwan National Park, one of the few remaining undisturbed vestiges of the 'Terai' region. Admire the opulent flora and fauna as you safari on the back of an elephant.

One of the last populations of single-horned Asiatic rhinoceros lives in the park, which is also one of the last refuges of the Bengal tiger; dolphins and crocodiles can also been seen as you canoe along the Narayani River.

Why is this a family holiday ?
The minimum age is 5 years old and the expert, internationally trained kayak guides and their instruction make this fun activity safe for the young and old alike. Parents can learn this thrilling sport alongside their children secure in the knowledge that they are all in the hands of professionals. The Seti River provides thrills for everybody whilst remaining in the realms of ‘beginner’ level rapids. The peace of mind that comes from this security only makes the adventure even more magnificent as the whole family learns how to set-up camp on the sandy beaches of one of the most pristine rivers in the Himalayas. The educational value of being part of an ecologically friendly camping expedition will stay for a lifetime as it teaches not just the fundamentals of how to erect and pack tents and prepare food hygienically but also environmentally sound practices such as correct garbage disposal and how to live in harmony and with respect for the beautiful surroundings.

Once at the national park the education and excitement will continue. Who will love the elephant ride, viewing river dolphins and the jungle atmosphere more – Mum, Dad, Grandparents or the younger ones? It will an experience that no-one will ever forget!

How this holiday makes a difference ?

All our staff are carefully chosen (90% Nepalese – 10% international) for their diverse range of talents, excellent inter-personal skills and commitment-loyalty to the local customs, people and environment of Nepal. Clients are reminded to only support community projects that, in their judgment, will have a positive ecological, social and/or cultural impact. We operate to promote environmental awareness and an appreciation of the wealth and fragility of Nepal's natural resources through sound ecological, conservation and preservation practices.

Nepal, for all its massive mountain peaks and impressive geography, is actually an incredibly fragile environment. We feel an increased responsibility to protect and preserve these wild places. Not only do we leave every campsite cleaner than when we've arrived, we've taken steps to protect Nepal's rivers and the people .With this in mind our policy is for minimal disturbance of any physical, social, political or cultural environment visited. We ask that visitors do not intentionally disturb any natural/domestic fauna and flora or their natural habitat and we adopt a zero tolerance attitude to littering.

The park and the local people jointly initiate community development activities and manage natural resources in the neighboring area. 30-50 percent of the national park’s revenue is ploughed back into the local community. Flora and fauna are fully protected and must not be disturbed. Visitors are asked to respect religious and cultural sites.
