At Pure Land Expeditions, we are proud to offer a true bespoke service. From kayak clinics to full treks. From the jungle safari to the mountain bike trail.
We get asked for private kayak clinics all the time, this is a sample schedule – showing what we can offer. Our bespoke trips work around your dates and we always tailor the trips to the group, so any questions just ask. We believe that beginners deserve the best gear to learn with and we supply modern kayaks and equipment during the clinic.
Arrive in Kathmandu. We will arrange for you to meet one of our team at the airport who will journey with you to your base camp hotel. This is time to relax and explore this chaotic capital.
With the time difference and possible jet lag this the time to soak in the temples and markets of Kathmandu. Our guides can assist with this or allow you to find your own way. We will spend the afternoon sorting your kayaking gear and begin your learning.
After our breakfast we will journey towards our dedicated static ‘Beach Camp’ situated on the banks of the Sun Kosi, close to Tibet. We spend the afternoon working on basic strokes and getting used to the water, terminology and rescue drills
Our purpose build camp has a fine sand beach, bar and showers on the riverside. Accommodation is in Safari tents at the rivers edge.
Full day on moving water, we will progress our skills on the Sun Kosi around Sukute village and onwards down river after lunch. New skills will be tested as the rapids increase. We will head back to the camp ready for our evening meal and talks around the bar with other adventure seekers.
More moving rapids on the Sun Kosi around Sukute, with rolling practice after lunch. We return to Kathmandu in the afternoon, to the base hotel.
Day 6 – 8
Having practiced and worked on all our skills we load up our rafts and head off down the Seti river for 3 days. We take to the water, scouting and running the rapids, all the time becoming more confident with our kayaks. All our gear is carried on support rafts. We camp each night on the beaches in the jungle corridor as kingfishers and monkeys dance, dart and play.
Drive to Pokhara and stay in hotel
Free time in Pokhara for sightseeing, shopping, relaxing.
Days 12 – 14
We head for Mugling and our base for the Trisuli. Over the next three days we build confidence on the river and aim to run rapids, building to class 4 standard. The Trisuli is a warm river and we will show your the joys of surfing and playing the rapids.
We then head back to Kathmandu for your final night.
After a rather leisurely breakfast we take you back to the airport for your return flight home.
