Tarka Kumal, a member of Nepal’s freestyle kayaking team at the 2001 world championships, deftly leads flocks of self-bailing rubber boats through the rapids of the Menominee River, one of the Midwest’s liveliest waterways. During the 3- to 3.5-hour journey, rafters of all experience levels dart past 200-foot cliffs to the swirling Sand Portage Rapids before finally making their way to Piers Gorge, where they’ll plunge down a 10-foot waterfall as gracefully as a swan descends down a mall escalator. Experienced guides holding certifications in river rescue, CPR, and wilderness first aid pilot each boat of six to eight voyagers as they traverse rapids that range from Class I to Class IV.

Tarka's Whitewater Journey

Tarka Kumal always loved the water. After a childhood spent on the rivers of Nepal, he was inspired to not only lead the nation's freestyle kayaking team to the world championships in 2001, but also to take rafting trips in more than a dozen countries. Today, Tarka has transformed his passion into a globe-spanning career—his Nepal- and Wisconsin- based company schedules adrenaline-pumping sojourns from rock climbing and safaris to whitewater rafting. Tarka's experienced guides have led hundreds of trips, and they each hold certifications in CPR, river rescue, and wilderness first aid to keep guests and nearby fish in safe hands. The company's website is stocked with helpful tips for watery adventurers, from advice on what to wear to details on trips down American and Nepalese rivers.
