nepal Kayaking in april

I am new to the forum and trying to research some whitewater kayaking in Nepal for the end of March / April. I have 3 weeks to play with and looking for any recommendations.
Also is it better to walk into companies in Nepal or book online for a better deal

Also any recommendation on rivers that are the not to be missed

I went to Nepal two years ago and paddled with GRG adventure kayaking. Good company, i can recommend them.
We booked everything in advance online and i feel like it was a good choice. If you have a limited amount of time and want to spend most of it in a kayak, i think it's the easiest way.
Maybe it's not the ceapest option, i don't know, but i think we got our moneys worth and then some on our trip.

I was talking with Mary DeRiemer recently and I know she and Phil do trips to Bhutan, maybe they also go to Nepal. Check them out

There are plenty of good companies there if you want to go that route. I would suggest getting a guidebook I think it's written by a British guy, it has decent info and helps with logistics. I was there for two months last year from late October through mid December and enjoyed the trip. What kind of whitewater are you looking for?

You'll definitely want to stick with Nepali owned companies. All the westerner led trips are twice the money. I used Mountain River Adventures for a Tamur raft trip a couple years ago. They were good on the water and our guide Raju was very skilled. My wife and I managed to keep in the boat even during repeated dumptruck attempts however... So on the water they were great and Tej, the front man, was good a the communication part before and during. What they sucked at was transport logistics. This was doubly bad because that is why I hired them--I don't need help once on the water. We had three nights of arriving to some crossroads town well after normal people are asleep with zero planning for connections or lodging. The second night, at Bastantapur, the driver they hired blared the horn of his microbus for half an hour until a local brothel owner kicked his girls out and let us into the nastiest, stinkiest, most disgusting hovel I've ever spent a night. . .

Don't forget to do some trekking while you are over there it is really not to be missed and it's so damn easy and cheap.

I would plan ahead as the trips they offer can be at random times. Do you want to do just commercial rafting or do you want multicast kayaking? I would highly recommend the Thule bheri and airmail rivers. They are in western Nepal which is a lot less touristy than the rest and are two world class rivers

Multicast kayaking on the airmail river is the shit!
Just watch out for kids with rocks and lighters.
