My boyfriend & I had a fantastic time doing the 3-day 2-night beginner kayak trip down the lower Seti River with Riverrunner Expeditions in April 2022. Dip was our main guide and he really took the time to help me learn the techniques. I was determined to be able to roll in my kayak and he hung with me as I attempted over and over and over. The rest of the crew was also so friendly and helpful. Meals were generous and thoughtfully prepared. Don't hesitate to go with Rapidrunner Expeditions.

Did the 4 days beginner kayak course after the Anapurna circuit. İt was so good. The experience was relaxed because of the camping and nice beach spots we had lunch etc in. and then the rapids were really good. Learnt a lot, felt safe and comfortable. And it was a way nicer journey to chitwan than the bus 🤟 do iiitttt

The whole experience was super thrilling as the team was super professional as well as friendly. Loved my experience with them with a cliff jump and swimming break on top of it. Didn't feel like it was my first rafting adventure at all. They ensured safety of each one of us and can assure you they're amazing at their job(had a first hand experience when one of our mate actually fell off from the raft). Definitely choosing them for my future rafting expeditions in pokhara.
