Having read reviews on TA about this company we decided to sign up for one of their trips to the upper Seti river. After a rather brief sell in the main office we signed up but were already feeling a little unsure. We were taken up to the river in the companies jeep, but we were totally packed in, with far too many people on board, some of the guides even travelled on the roof with the equipment which made us feel like the company were more interested packing in as many people as possible rather than safety. The same theme seemed to continue once we were on the river, again with too many people on the rafts and too few staff. Nothing in particular was wrong but it all just felt a bit like the staff didn't care much - it wasn't the special experience we were hoping for. To add to everything once back in Pokhara the next day we were in a travel agent down the street who were offering the same trip with paddle nepal, but for 15 dollars less than we had been charged by their own office! All in all we would not really recommend this company, but if you do want to go book via an agent for a better price.

Awesome crew created lots of fun at the campsite, worked hard to make it a great trip. Fantastic food! Very happy with safety briefings and kayakers on hand when we capsised. Good company to go with, we'd be happy to do it all over again!

With just one day to fill in Pokhara, my wife and I chose to go rafting. We elected to go with Paddle Nepal, a company recommended almost everywhere in Pokhara. Whilst we were offered similar packages for cheaper at other companies, you really should expect to get what you pay for.

The safety equipment, organisation and guides were EXCELLENT. We were lucky enough to have Nim - the owner, as our guide, and his knowledge, experience and obvious love for his job, made the whole afternoon.

The upper Seti is a superb half day trip for all.
