Two grand whitewater events in Nepal this October: Modi Express III and Cassanga Challenge

Join us for Modi Khola Express III 2019. and then immediately head to Pokhara for the first-ever Cassanga Challenge! With exciting sections to paddle and over 2000USD in prizes, your trip to Western Nepal will be well worth it.
On October 22-23, battle it out on the Modi Khola, an excellent grade 4/5 river nestled inside Nepal’s famous Annapurna Conservation Area. Compete in Downriver Sprint, Giant Slalom and Boatercross races for cash prizes and see if you can be the Best South Asian Paddler and take home a Royal Flush from Spake Kayaks! Also enjoy a relaxing night of cultural dance learning to move like the locals and watch some great movies including the new SEND and UNDAMAGED.

On October 25-26, battle it out in the Cassanga Challenge – a multi adventure bike-run-paddle race in the Upper Seti region to honour the memory of Cassandra Elise Emary. Cass was an inspiring and strong friend to many Nepali kayakers. She passed away while paddling the Upper Seti in Spring 2018. Come enjoy the river Cass called home, and take home big cash prizes while you’re at it.
