What to Bring

Most river trips in Nepal are at a low altitude so that typically you will find the water pleasantly warm and the climate sub- tropical – in truth, this is one of the pleasure of paddling here: much of the time all you need to wear is a pair of shorts and a thermal top. If you are doing a multi- day trip you won't normally need to carry lost of heavy cold weather gear.
Here, is a suggest gear list for a self- contained trip down the Bheri in November.

The gear you should take obviously depends on the time of year, the river, and the altitude of your start point. When we did an expedition down the Humala arnali, we start at 2000 meters in December and we were grateful for our wetsuit and extra warm clothes. For more difficult rivers like this, there is a strong case for long john wetsuits in that they give you more protection if you do have a bad swim.
Remember that most of the valleys of Nepal are well populated and on most rivers you be able to find shelter and food in an emergency.
