Our First International Courses
welcome to the himalaya....
This winter we're in Nepal, from October right through to February. Combining many things on this trip such as trekking the Annapurna, Kayaking and rafting multi day expeditions & teaching our first international courses we couldn't be more excited to be here in the wonderful place that is Nepal.
Our first courses take place right after the Himalayan Whitewater Challenge in Pokhara, central Nepal we begin on the 5th of December. We have teamed up with local friends at Silk Road bar and restaurant to host the course, provide us with a delicious dahl bhat and caffiene.
This program is Whitewater first aid - 16 Hour - and is for members from Nepal Kayak Club. We made a friendly deal with the club, the courses here are not for profit as pretty much no one here made any money last year due to the earthquake. Classroom lessons happen at the Silk Road and the 2nd day of each course is spent out in rafts & kayaks on the nearby rafting section of the upper seti river. As most of the people coming on the course have done a first aid before or if not are already experienced river guides, these courses are an absolute blast! The boys really know their stuff, and it s great to see so many people getting so much out of the training. We have sunny conditions all day on the river days and great classroom environment. In total we put 19 people through theses two courses - we are very happy to have helped out the whitewater community here.
