    Short description of the Organization
    Established in the year 1987 by Mr. Megh Ale, Ultimate Descents Nepal is the name of
    the Nepal's premier rafting organization. With the years of experience in hospitality as     well as in Nepal's whitewater, Ultimate Descents is also very proud to claim the Nepal     Tourism Award for last five consecutive years. Our operators employ the most     experienced guides and state of the art equipment, to make all trips a memorable,     fulfilling and above all, safe experience. Safety is and always been the first priority at     Ultimate Descents Nepal and it is the only company having guides trained in SRT (Swift     Water Rescue Technician), CPR and wilderness First Aid. Ultimate Descents Nepal has     run many of the first descents on Himalayan rivers and offers river journeys on almost all     the rivers including Karnali, Marshyangdi, Sunkoshi, Bhotekoshi, Tamur, Trishuli, kali     Gandaki, and Seti. Our river journey starts with a pre departure meeting where clients     are given an opportunity to meet their Trip Leader, collect money for beer kitty, handout     dry bags, and put forward any last minute queries. All the expedition is led on a private     coach and our guides will be your best entertainers for the rest of the journey. camping     is always set on a clean site and the food is prepared hygienically.
