Day 1 st : This is a long bus journey, so be prepared with water etc. We travel to the far west and arrive in Surkhet very late/early hours of the morning. You are able have a sleep here.
Day 2 nd: after breakfast, we will take a truck as far as the road goes until about lunch time (this all depends on availability.be flexible). After lunch we walk all afternoon to the put-in point at sauli. A great walk which highlights just how "out there" you really are. You pass local villages and spectacular scenery, and then. You hear the river!
Day 3 rd: The River gives the team time to build and there is enough challenging rapids and water flow to allow for learning errors. We still manage to get at least one great class IV rapid in. We camp and get excited about tomorrow.
Day 4 th : This is the type of day that people imagine when they think of Himalayan water. It is BIG and it is continuous. We enter into the jungle corridor. This is a narrowing jungle clad gorge and it is all ours. The team building is put into full practice and when your guide shouts "all forward" he really means it! Enjoy the ride all day and camp in this sensational setting.
Day 5 th: More of the same including the notorious GOD`S HOUSE rapid. Don't forget to take in the bird life, which is equally as abundant as the lush vegetation. Camp and relax.
Day 6 th : it isn't over yet! Keep paddling hard! You really are experiencing the best of the west on yet another day of great action and breath taking scenery.
Day 7 th: This is a holiday after all, so we have programmed a rest day so you can take time to enjoy your surroundings and relax on a great sandy beach.
Day 8 th & 9 th: We see the rapids dying off as we come out of the gorge. We pass the confluence with the Seti River where the river broadens. Today and the next day and a half are a chance to enjoy your journey admiring the country and village you pass. You will have seen the safety kayakers in action and will no doubt be inspired, so ask the guides for some supervised instruction, or take over the raft and learn about the river.
You se there is more to a rafting expedition than just rafters.
