I went with them twice for a 2 weeks adventure on 2 different rivers. The trip is fun, the food is great (even when breakfast pancakes are made on woodfire) and you are well looked after. The trip accommodates for both kayakers and rafters and whichever you are, you will be well looked after.
Both trips worked in a similar format: mini expedition for 3 days testing gear and your confidence on mighty Himalayan rivers. Then head for a few days trek, trying to spot Everest, meet the locals and sleep under a tarp on in local hostels. The last week or so is spent living at the rhythm of the river, kayakinh/rafting big bouncy rapids, socialising with other adventurers in the group and sleeping in the beach by the campfire. What’s not to love!
We did a River Trip (Sun Kosi, Bhote Kosi, Tamur, Balephi) and all I can say is: it was top level. In terms of logistics the trip was as well organized as can be. Everything worked out smooth from airport pickup until being dropped off there again.
On the river itself it was about the same. Everything was very relaxed and we felt safe all the way. The level of “luxury” (I guess you have to call it that) was absolutely compareable to Grand Canyon River Trips! You really have to hurry to set up your camp to be finished before the guys have hot water and popcorn ready for you. Also the food they prepare is excellent!
All I can do is recommend Ram and his Team to everybody planning a river trip. Thanks Ram & Team for a great trip!
One last advice for everybody though: Watch out when the dice game is on.
Did a Adventure Trip of a lifetime in Oct 2017 with Ram and his Team. Had an absolute blast!! We ended up doing an adventure trip which consisted of 4 Days Hiking, 2 Days Mountain Biking & 4 Days going down the Sun Kosi river. Apparently they can cater for all sorts of trips, so that is a big plus too. Everything was executed with safety & professionalism at all times. Would recommend to anyone and am looking forward to going back there one day & doing a different trip. Was thoroughly impressed with the holiday!! 😀
What better way to spend a significant birthday. And I was pampered like a Princess on every other day too. From the minute of arriving in Nepal, the guys (wish you had been there too Georgia) were organising. The right hotel, the right boat for me, the food that I like, where to shop and what to buy and what to see. And we hadn’t even started our over 2 week trip on some of the most beautiful rivers in the world. (and believe me, Ive seen a few!!) Humour, excellant Guides, good cooks and then because i wanted more!!! They took me on my own personal trip on the Kali for another couple of days. Thanks everyone – it was brilliant. And if you’ll have me back for my 80th I’ll be there!! “KAYAKCRAZY”
