Kayak Instruction Course 4 & 7days
Nepal’s First Kayak School
With warm water, clear skies and thousands of miles of spectacular river systems, Nepal is a Mecca for white water enthusiasts. Located only 69 miles east of Kathmandu, the Sukute Beach Kayak School has become one of Nepala’s favorite adventure destinations. It is truly the perfect environment for an introductory course in white water kayaking. Skilled & enthusiastic instructors will guide you in the techniques required to handle your own kayak in the rapids of the Bhote Kosi River. Evenings are spent in the tranquil surroundings of the camp lodge recounting tall tales of an action-packed day over a cup of rum punch. With volleyball, our private beach and a bar, Sukute Beach offers the opportunity to enjoy life and relax.
