Paddle Nepal is an guiding company with an emphasis on safety, fun, and a genuine experience of the Himalayan rivers. As an instructor for an outdoor experiential education program for teenagers in Ladakh, India, I was hyper-aware of their attention to detail and professionalism. The evening before we left, we had a safety briefing about what to expect on the raft and a few logistical details about packing. For the two days on the water, our guides made sure that we had fun and were safe. Their English was great and they were incredibly knowledgeable about the rivers, paddling, and Nepal in general. In response to maitaigirl92's comments, I couldn't disagree more. As a participant on the same trip, there were in fact, 6 clients on the boat, with our guide. There were 3 other guides in kayaks who paddled the rapids first to help guide the raft. At camp, the guides had a lot of work with setting up a wash-station and tents, peeling and cooking fresh vegetables, and looking after all the gear. Nonetheless, it was easy to help, practice my Nepali, and joke with them. The guides and clients built a fire and played games and riddles long into the night. As a guide, I was inspired by their ability to do it all so seamlessly! In conclusion, my only disappointment was that it was so short and that I have to go back to work. I am already daydreaming of learning to kayak with Paddle Nepal!
