Originally from the UK, I've now made Nepal my home. I love Nepal and I love adventures. Taking people who have never been to Nepal before and showing them how amazing this country is truly is the best job in the world.

Alongside my partner, we run an outdoor adventure company that specializes in whitewater rafting and kayaking. We also organize school groups, volunteer groups and bespoke tours including trekking, safari, sightseeing, and adventure!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Nepal, Nepal, Nepal. Mostly all things water. Rafting, Kayaking, Canyoning, SUP & More. Also has a long history of running tours for school expedition groups. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"I first traveled outside of Europe after college and spent 6 months in West Africa (traveling through Ghana, Burkina Faso, Mali...made it all the way to Timbuktu and back again!) after that, I guess I was hooked. I forced myself to go to University and get my degree, and since then the longest I have spent in the UK at any one time is 3 months! I now call Nepal my home, but can make myself at home in pretty much any country I find myself in! "

Kaligandaki River Rafting - 3 days Rafting Expedition near Pokhara, Nepal

This is the best mini rafting expedition on offer in Nepal.

Trisuli Rafting & Kayaking - 1-2 Days

The Trisuli is Nepal’s best river for day trips. Located centrally between Kathmandu, Chitwan and Pokhara, it’s the perfect way to break up a long bus journey to your next destination. Why sit on a bus for 8 hours when you can raft half of it! It’s one of the most popular day trips in Nepal and is great for everyone, all year round.

Tamur Rafting/Kayaking Trip

This has to be the ultimate adventure trip in Nepal. Combining a breathtaking Himalayan trek (with views of Everest can we add!) with some world class whitewater. 11 days off the beaten track, and very much in the wild! You’ll need a great sense of adventure for this trip as the rapids are non-stop for the first few days and pretty hardcore. If you’re looking for a trip to get your heart pounding – this is the one!
