A great walk which highlights just how "out there'' you really are. You pass the local villages and spectacular scenery, then……..you hear the river!

Day 03 : The river gives the team time to build and there is enough challenging rapids and Water flow to allow for learning errors. We still manage to get at least one great class IV rapid in. We camp and get excited about tomorrow.

Day 04 : This is the type of day that people imagine when they think of Himalayan water. It is BIG and it is continuous. We enter into the jungle corridor. This is a narrowing jungle clad gorge and it is all ours. The team building is put into full practice and when your guide shouts "all forward" he really means it! Enjoy the ride all day and camp in this sensational setting.

Day 05 : More of the same including the notorious GOD'S HOUSE rapids. Don't forget to take in the bird life which is equally as abundant as lush vegetation. Camp and relax.
