Other services we offer
Although we specialise in water sports, WhiteWater Nepal can also organise a range of activities on dry land throughout the country.
If you desire, we can arrange treks off the beaten track and into the country’s more remote regions - where we are often able to help support local communities. We also offer cycling tours and sightseeing services around the Kathmandu Valley and beyond. And many of our customers choose to combine one of our rafting trips with a visit to one of Nepal’s famous National Parks.
Further more, WhiteWater Nepal are pleased to offer another exclusive: special Educational Programmes. These programmes are designed by us in consultation with qualified teachers from the international community.
Jungle safaris have a long history in Nepal. They first started as hunting trips for the Royal Family and biggame hunters from around the world. Today the hunting is more commonly done with a camera.
In Nepal’s protected National Parks you can observe the wildlife on foot, from the back of a jeep or even a top an elephant! Some of the animals you may come across include endangered one horned rhinos, deer, birds, monkeys and, if you are very lucky, a royal Bengal tiger.
What’s more, a number of our rafting trips pass through the region in Nepal known as the Terai – home to the National Parks. We recommend a jungle safari as the perfect way to relax, unwind and experience the wildlife of Nepal.
We can arrange safaris in Royal Chitwan National Park, Bardia National Park and Royal Suklaphat Wildlife Reserve.
We can organize cycling tours around the Kathmandu Valley and beyond. Cycling is a great way to travelaround Nepal and it is becoming increasingly popular. Why not try some biking after you have been on one of our rafting trips?
We are pleased to arrange sightseeing trips for you in and around the Kathmandu Valley. Nepal boasts a rich cultural diversity and it is well worth exploring the region. If you only have a short time in Nepal, our tours will make sure you get the most out of your trip.
Favorite destinations for visitors are Bhaktapur, where it is possible to see local potters at work, Nagarkot, for wonderful sunrises and mountain views, Swayambhunath (monkey temple), Patan Durbar Square and Kathmandu Durbar Square, but we can design programs to meet your own requirements and budget. We can take you to all the popular tourist attractions, but also our knowledge of the area around the Kathmandu Valley ensures that we can take you to less known, but equally interesting and culturally rich places.
All our sightseeing excursions are conducted by experienced guides who speak and understand English very well. Guides for non-English speakers can also be arranged.
A trip to Nepal is a rewarding and educational experience for students from any country. As such, we specialize in offering educational programmes.
Our programmes are designed in consultation with qualified teachers from the international community to meet the individual needs of the participating students.
We can provide single activities or a variety of combined packages, which include different combinations of the following:
- Jungle safari/National Park experience
We will work with you in developing an education programme that meets the precise needs of the students of your institution. We can also arrange all your accommodation, airport pick-ups and transport to and from activities.
Our Education Policy
We believe in providing educational experiences in which students develop their own personal and interpersonal skills, in a safe and secure environment.
A selection of challenging and exciting activities can be especially adapted to meet the needs of your students.
All our guides speak English and have experience working with students in outdoor activities. They are also trained in CPR, first aid and advanced river rescue techniques.
Our activities are open to students aged 13 and over.
Rafting for students
We offer rafting trips specifically designed for student groups on three of Nepal’s rivers: the Seti, Trisuli and Kali Gandaki. (Rafting on the Kali Gandaki is dependent on the time of the year, river conditions and the age and size of the students.)
We provide staff on a 1:4 ratio helping to ensure the safety of all participants, at all times.
Kayaking for students
Through our kayak school, we can teach students to learn to kayak, or to improve established skills. The kayak school starts with basic skills, building up to rolling in white water and navigating small rapids.
Jungle Safari / National Park Experience
A trip to one of Nepal’s protected National Parks or Wildlife Reserves is a unique opportunity for students to experience some of Nepal’s native flora and fauna. We can arrange safaris by jeep or elephant, both a great but safe way of viewing wildlife such as the one horned rhino, deer, monkeys, sloth bears and, if you are very lucky a royal Bengal tiger!
There are also opportunities to visit the elephant breeding centre, see traditional Tharu dancing and visit a typical Tharu village.
Jungle safaris can be easily combined with one of our rafting trips for a more rounded experience.
Nepal is famous for its wonderful mountain scenery, and the best way to see it, is to trek it. It is a common misconception that the most rewarding treks are the longer ones. In fact, stunning views, excellent trekking routes and diverse cultures can all be found on short treks not far from the Kathmandu Valley. If you are limited by time or budget, these treks are excellent opportunities to see more of Nepal.
We offer a variety of short treks, many of which can be completed in just one or two days. Our trekking guides provide informative coverage of all treks, routes, peoples encountered and local festivals and customs. We can also arrange porters if required.
However, you don’t need to embark on a trek in order to see Nepal’s stunning scenery; fine views can usually be found wherever you are, on the river, inside the National Parks or even on the road en-route from one place to another.
If you and your students have a limited amount of time, our sightseeing tours in an around the Kathmandu valley will make sure you make the most of it.
Favourite destinations for groups are Bhaktapur, where it is possible to see local potters at work, Nagarkot, for wonderful sunrises and mountain views, Swayambhu (monkey temple), Patan Durbar Square and Kathmandu Durbar Square, but we can design programs to meet your own requirements and budget. We can take you to all the popular tourist attractions, but also our knowledge of the area around the Kathmandu Valley ensures that we can take you to less known, but equally interesting and culturally rich places.
All our sightseeing excursions are conducted by experienced guides who speak and understand English very well. Guides for non-English speaking groups can also be arranged.
