Kayaking for Basic Paddlers

It makes good sense to start on easier rivers then build up experience for the harder and more remote trip-most of the suggested itineraries below are designed to do just this and also to minimize the more dangerous time spent in buses. These give you an a idea of how rivers can be combined in a reasonable time spent but note that you should allow a reserve day for delays waiting. The below program designed for support raft, camping accommodation and meals service arrangement, our professional river guide and other crews handle everything. The meal will be provided enroute and camping place.

Best Season:
Autumn - October to 15th December, Winter - December to February, Spring - March to May

Suggested Itinerary 1

The Basic paddlers recommended river is Seti river: warm and wilderness river:

You start out with small rapids and by the end of the trip they get progressively harder where you're doing class III. The water is also warmer than any other river because of the natural springs that feed into it, which is really nice if you're a beginner since you'll spend a lot of time in the water.
