Kayak Clinics: Seti River 4 Days

 

Kayak Clinics: Seti River 4 Days

Class II-III (ex Pokhara)

With the support and guidance of our internationally certified instructors, we can make your introduction to kayaking enjoyable and positive. Flowing blue and warm, the Seti River meanders through an isolated wilderness of contorted limestone gorges, forest and small rapids. The thrill and gratification of learning to Kayak in the Himalayas is a great start to Kayaking.

If you have never rafted before, this is an ideal introductory trip. A stupendous setting, thrilling drops, gorges and limestone formations, welcome you into another dimension, where your instinct becomes your driving force, and your body your best ally. Both experienced and novice paddlers will agree this, is the Ultimate Experience.

Itinerary:

There is a pre-departure briefing in our Pokhara office the evening before the expedition at 6 PM. This is a chance to get the group together and discuss the clinic. At the meeting you have a chance to meet the instructors and support group, and we can answer any final queries, give out personal gear bags and collect money for the beer kitty. Afterwards we will probably head to one of our local favorites for a relaxed meal.

Day 1
After breakfast we head to the boathouse in Pokhara to be kitted with your means of transportation for the next 4 days; that being your kayak and all personal kayaking gear. Once everyone is kitted and fitted, we head to Fewa Lake in Pokhara and spend the day familiarizing ourselves with being in a kayak, covering the basic paddle strokes and with an aim to perfecting the perfect still Eskimo roll. We break for lunch and continue our water acrobatics well into the late afternoon.

We head back to the boathouse to change into dry clothes, set up our bedding for the night on the big compound and enjoy some real home cookin'.

Day 2 - 4
We wake the next morning for an early breakfast before boarding our chartered bus. It is a 2-hour drive from Pokhara to our put in below Damauli. From here until take out, we live and breathe and sleep kayaking. We wake early each morning to get a good start on the day and with the combination of riverside theoretical and whitewater practical instruction to hone those much needed skills, you'll be looking for that perfect play hole to show off your surfing techniques before long!

On average we paddle 5 - 6 hours each day. You'll quickly begin to feel muscles you never knew existed before. We camp out each night on river beaches, and after enjoying a hearty meal there is time to relax by the camp fire with a hot rum punch exchanging, and often exaggerating, whitewater tales and experiences.

Day 4
Although progress and skill depends on the individual, by day 4 most clients have a reliable whitewater roll and easily make their way through the class III rapids on this last day. We kayak to the take out point at Gai Ghat, load the bus and relax on the return journey to Pokhara. After a much needed hot shower and change of clothes, the group usually gets together to enjoy an end of the trip meal at one of the popular restaurants in Pokhara.
