Back from white water kayaking

White water kayak is quite an intense experience. You have no control over the water, experience and technic would help you, but as I have none, so the first days were really tough ! I drink lots of water, swim a lot. Not as relaxing as expected, I have to admit :-)

I kayak on the Trisli River

More about the Trisuli River:
The Trishuli is named after the trishula or trident of Shiva, a powerful god in the Hindu pantheon.There is a legend that says high in the Himalayas at Gosaikunda, Shiva drove his trident into the ground to create three springs – the source of the river and hence its name Trisuli

Trisuli river starts from Betrawati (625m) and flows to Narayanghat (170m) covering distance of 141 kms. The river is approchable from Kathmandu by vehicle in 2 to 4 hours' drive and the river days would be from 4 to 7. The difficulty in class is 3+ to 4

  1. Wow, that was a great video Sophie. You look like you had a blast! I love to kayak too. It must feel nice not to be wearing 3 pounds of goose down for a change ;)

    Best Wishes,
