I would like to thank you both for a tremendous paddling holiday in Nepal. I have kayaked in Nepal before and know how hard it is to organize all the ground details.

Your company Whitewater Nepal enabled me and my daughter to get 17 days kayaking on great rivers like the Balephi Khola, Bhote Kosi, Sun Kosi and Tamur.

Your rafting support crew were tremendous and doubled up as accomplished cooks. You and Ram were excellent kayak support and guides and provided good safety to ensure everyone was in their comfort zone.

My daughter especially liked the four day walk up to the start of the Tamur which gave her a better understanding of the rural way of life in Nepal far away from the unreal hussle and bussle of Kathmandu.

I liked the camping on the rivers edge with the sounds of the water gurgling and time out to sketch, play volleyball or hike into remote areas. We both look back on this time and feel lucky to have had such a great holiday.

I remember it every day as I have done a couple of portraits of porters that hang in my stairwell.

With fond regar
