    Hi all, while I agree the price is high there are few reasons behind it:
    1. All the gear used in these sessions are the best available in the market
    2. Some of the gear has to be rented from others, also transporting them involves some cost.
    3. The session will be very focused towards teaching the sport and techniques, unlike a resort where you are just given equipment with no instructions. The objective of the session is to get people interested in kayaking and pursue it as a hobby.
    4. All over India (perhaps the world too) the price is almost the same. Few organizations based in Rishikesh provide kayak training, but not day courses.

    I hope you are all convinced :-)
    Please confirm by email or phone about your participation.
