Himalayan Kayak Race – The Kayaking Event

Kayaking Event : Himalayan Kayak Race 2018 Events Detail

The Himalayan Kayak Race is a 2-day international showcase of whitewater sports, featuring a series of kayaking competitions and events. This annual festival attracts both local and international participants, from novices to professionals, as well as scores of spectators from a variety adventure-sports backgrounds. This year will be the 1st annual Himalayan Kayak Race.

Although the river has traditionally been the centerpiece of this festival, our main objective is to gather outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world for a celebration of adventure sport, multi-culturalism, and unity. Spectators, competitors, and participants of all ages, nationalities, and backgrounds are invited to attend the Two days of festivities at the river’s edge. Everyone in attendance gets to choose their level of involvement in festival activities, and their presence alone is a welcome contribution to the spirit of this event.

WHAT, WHEN & WHERE?

The festival will held each year on Bhotekoshi river, set to a backdrop of the central Nepal Himalaya. Among a host of events, competitions include kayak slalom, kayak freestyle, boatercross, down-river races.

BEHIND THE SCENES

The Himalayan Kayak Race is being started by House of Rajkarnikcar to help provide opportunity and support to a new generation of Nepalese kayakers. Traditionally, up-and-coming Nepalese paddlers show great potential and natural talent, but lack the equipment, training, and guidance needed to make it to professional and world-class levels. Through the House of Rajkanicar and Ultimate Descents we aim to help them reach their full potential by providing them with an opportunity for education, training, and support, both on and off the water.

FESTIVAL MISSION

An important goal of this festival is to promote whitewater sports– kayaking in particular– on the Nepalese and Himalayan sport scenes. In doing so, we also aim to inspire the continuing development of paddle- and adventure-sports in the rest of Asia, and promote an unprecedented legitimacy to their athletes.
