Our Outdoor Adventures Continue:

Having a little time on our hands we signed up for a 9 day white water rafting trip on the beautiful Sun Kosi River that streches across Nepal. We booked our trip with a company called Ultimate Descents upon a reccomendation. In fact, there was only one other couple who also booked on the same dates as us, Mark from Edmonton and Susan from Dublin. This meant we were to hit the river with only 4 clients and 6 crew members, 10 in all!!

I'll spare most of the details of our trip, highlights of the trip are outlined in detail here:

Check out a good map to get a feel for the number of rapids we went through here:

We had an exceptionally awesome crew, with Mani leading the helm. We ate like kings and queens every night, including some chicken curry (2 live chickens were picked up by Kishna, one of the safety kayakers, and brought back across the river inside his kayak!) and an authentic beach fire pig roast (the pig also being acquired from local villagers).

The rapids were awesome, immensely huge in some places. Definitely reccommend to anyone who has never done it. Can't wait to come back to Nepal to do it all over again!
