Learn to Kayak with the Pros! Ultimate Descents Nepal runs a series of kayak clinics each season. These introductory courses are designed for those with little or no previous kayaking experience. Throughout the 4-day clinic you will learn all the basic skills of kayaking, including: paddle strokes, Eskimo rolls, Eskimo rescue and the art of reading whitewater. While the priority is on safety, we don’t forget the joys of a more intimate relationship with the magical Himalayan whitewater!

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 supplies and other needed items down the river to our campsite. The Sati River is one of the most beautiful and pristine rivers in the Himalayas. With dense, remote jungles, exquisite, sandy beaches and Class II–III whitewater runs, this is the perfect river for beginner kayakers to gain the skills needed for later kayaking expeditions.

Every season, we run a series of Kayak Clinics on the Seti for those with little or no previous
kayaking experience. The thrill and gratification of learning to kayak in the Himalaya is a great
start to kayaking. Flowing turquoise blue and warm, the Seti river meanders through an isolated
wilderness of contorted limestone gorges, forests and Class II – III rapids – the perfect river for a
more intimate relationship with the magical Himalayan whitewaters.
We have some of the best kayak instructors in the world with a strong history of running rivers
worldwide. Training begins with familiarization of being in a kayak on Pokhara’s Lake Phewa.

The clinic covers all the basic skills of kayaking and the art of reading whitewater. From the put-
in point just below Damauli, s short two-hour drive from Pokhara, until the take-out, we live,
breathe and sleep kayaking.
Every day is a combination of riverside theoretical and practical whitewater instruction and
although progress depends on the individual, by the last day almost everyone will have got the
hang of a reliable whitewater roll and can easily make their way through Class III rapids. The
clinics have support rafts that follow the kayakers down the river with personal gear and
camping supplies.

Kayaking

Kayakers are more than welcome to join any of our expeditions. We often have three or more
kayakers paddling alongside our trips, so you are never alone. Ultimate Descents Nepal
currently has 50 kayaks in stock and we usually provide you with your preference. Please give
us details of which kayak/equipment you would like and our staff will be more than happy to
put it aside for you. To be the safe side, we request that you list your first and second
preferences.
