A water sport, kayaking is the best form of river adventure, specially in the blossoming rivers of Nepal. Kayaks are made from a special type of plastic and have floatation devices inserted to aid buoyancy. Kayakers move through the water with a double blade paddle, and are able to negotiate rapids and obstacles on the river. With its wide range of rivers and wealth of challenging rapids, Nepal is the perfect destination for Kayaking.
