Trips & Tours with Adventure Aves


Kayak School Nepal
Trip Style: School
Season: October-June
Suitable for: All
Fancy taking a trip on the river and learning a new skill at the same time? Don’t want to spend hours on a bus when you could learn a new skill and get to your next destination? Then why not join one of our kayak schools. The schools run from 3 to 5 days, on the Trishuli and/or Seti rivers and are a great way to break up dull bus journeys between Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan. We start at our boat house where we provide you with all the necessary equipment before taking you down to the water for an introduction to kayaking and rescue. The school runs at the pace of the small group (maximum 6 persons) and we provide 1:1 support to give you the best possible start to your kayaking career.

Once you have the basics we start downriver, taking on class 1-2 rapids as we go but also with plenty of calm water to practice your Eskimo roll. As you gain more confidence on the water you will meet bigger rapids and get a real feel for the adventures kayaking has to offer. All our trips run with a good English speaking instructor and support raft for safety and to transport our camp and kitchen.

Fun for All the Family
Trip Style: Family
Season: October to May
Suitable for: Children 4+yrs
When you think rafting you don’t often think about children, but we do. We love nothing better than getting kids to fall in love with the river. Our family package takes you from Kathmandu or Pokhara, rafting on the slightly warmer Seti river for 2 nights 3 days with plenty of opportunity for the kids to swim or have a play on or in our kayaks. At camp we have plenty of games and things to see and do to keep everyone occupied or let Mum and Dad relax. Then it is just a couple of hours on a bus to Chitwan to spend 3 nights surrounded by the endangered one horn rhino, elephants, leopards and the elusive Bengali tiger.

This trip is an ideal way to avoid the big long bus journeys between tourist centres and see Nepali life from the river side. We provide child size equipment, wetsuits, lifejackets and helmets and take plenty of stops to enjoy the scenery, the wildlife (monkeys, birds and the occasional fish) and replenish energy (biscuits and juice). In Chitwan you can ride an elephant to get up close and personal with the locals, watch as the elephants take a bath and visit traditional villages.

The Original Peddle and Paddle
Trip Style: Multi adventure
Season: All year round
Suitable for: All
This trip combines a thrilling day of downhill mountain biking with a day on one of the most exciting rivers in Nepal, the Bhote Kosi. After just a 2 hour drive you find yourself at one of the most stunning viewpoints over the Himalaya in Nagarkot. Once you have taken your photos and had a cup of tea (obligatory on any biking trip in Nepal) it is on to your wheels to head down a jeep track through lush green forest, local villages and a cheese factory! At the end of your 35km you get to relax and enjoy a hearty lunch. At our destination we will stop for some refreshment then it is back on to the bus for about 1 ½ hour drive to our camp site ready to relax by the river. Here we will enjoy good food and good company by the camp fire.

Next morning after a leisurely breakfast we head back on the bus to our rafting starting point. You’ll be kitted out with all the gear you need, given a short paddle and safety talk then it is onto the river to tackle the rapids. After 3 ½ hours of paddling we finish with a well-deserved lunch before heading back to Kathmandu. This trip is ideal for those who don’t have much time or are looking to fill a weekend around Kathmandu. It is a great way to see the mountains, foothills and beautiful gorge of the Bhote Kosi which runs from Tibet.

The Ultimate Peddle and Paddle
Trip Style: Multi Activity
Season: October to May
Suitable for: Mountain Biking experience required
Spend 4 ½ days taking on the might of the Annapurna’s on two wheels before heading down to the Kali Gandaki to ride wild rapids, this really is the ultimate peddle and paddle combination. The amazing views and rich cultural heritage will keep you enthralled as you ride from Jomsom to Maldungha, along great single tracks and jeep roads and combining some of the toughest climbs and best downhill in Nepal. From Maldungha it is onto the boats to tackle Little Brother, Big Brother and Rafters Refund rapids to name just a few. Sat in one of the most beautiful valleys in Nepal, this holy river changes every year after the monsoon and is a favourite of the guides.

This 7 day trip is really a chance to do and see a lot of this magnificent region. Starting from Pokhara, a short flight to Jomsom takes in breathtaking views of Dhaulagiri and beyond, a great way to kick off this spectacular tour. This is a fully inclusive tour with all food and accommodation (camping during the rafting section), transport, fully serviced quality mountain bikes and helmets, all rafting equipment (including wetsuits) and most importantly expert guides provided. With the option of an intermediate or technical level tour there is no better way to see this beautiful and enthralling area.

Whitewater, waterfalls and crocodiles
Trip Style: Multi Activity
Season: October to May
Suitable for: All
Experience the thrill of whitewater rafting, the adrenaline rush of canyoning and the peace and tranquility found when watching wildlife all in one trip. After a 2 ½ hour bus journey from Kathmandu we head on to the rafts for a one and a half day paddle on the Trishuli river from Charoudi, taking on class 3 and 4 rapids and enjoying our camp under the stars. On the second day we finish rafting at Jelbire, famous for its waterfalls and pools and a great place to canyon. After all the thrills and fun we get back onto the bus for a just a short 1 hour journey to Sauraha and the delights of Chitwan National Park. Here you can relax for the evening before heading into the jungle for the next day by elephant or jeep in hope of seeing the elusive Bengali tiger and the endangered one-horn rhino.

With an option to spend 2 nights/3 days or 3 nights/4 days in Chitwan this trip is an exhilarating way to journey from Kathmandu and see Nepal from the river side. No experience of rafting or canyoning is necessary and we provide all activity and camping equipment (except sleeping bags).

Catch of the day
Trip Style: Fishing
Season: Mid-October to End November.
Suitable for: Fishing enthusiasts
If you are an adventurous angler who is looking to go further afield to find your next catch then Nepal has something to offer. Famous for Golden Masheer and giant Catfish, the Babhai rivers meanders its way from the foothills of the Himalaya to the plains and jungle of Bardia National Park. Your trip starts with either a 14 hour bus journey or a short flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj, depending on your budget, then a two hour transfer by vehicle to Bardia National Park. Here you will spend your first night in a homely resort surrounded by the locals, one horned rhinos, elephants and the elusive Bengali tiger. After an early breakfast we hop in the vehicle with all our gear for a 1 hour journey to our starting point. From here we will spend the next 3 ½ days in the best fishing spots in Nepal, feeling the excitement as your rod bends and the fight begins. As we paddle downstream we pass local villages and watch the world go by in this remote part of Nepal. Evenings are spent camping on the sandy beaches under the stars.

At the end of the trip you can choose to spend more time in Bardia, taking in your surroundings by elephant or jeep safari, fly back or take an overnight bus back to Kathmandu. We provide all rafting gear and camping gear (except sleeping bags); all you need to bring is your own angling equipment and enthusiasm. This is a catch and release trip.
