the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri peaks as well as
the sacred Fishtail Mountain. Upon arrival we
unload gear. We serve lunch and our professional
guides will give you a full safety briefing.
After briefing it is straight in the grade 4
rapid Little brother followed quickly by Big
Brother. If you have any doubts you have no time
to think about them now! It is grade 4 to 4+ all
the way! The scenery is impressive with blue
green water, high sided lush green valleys and
amphitheatres of golden sandstone cliffs with
eagles riding the updrafts. On the left, pass a
fascinating temple and ghat at the river1s
confluence with the Modi Khola. Tonight we camp
at one of natureís five star sites with mind
blowing views and dancing waterfalls.
Day 02: Today is continuous grade 3 to 4
world-class white water with rapids like
Rafterís Refund and our Breaker. Wave trains and
holes abound early so watch out if you donít
want to flip! Adrenalin junkies hold on tight
but donít forget to keep glancing back upstream
to catch views of the amazing Annapurnaís. Once
camped, the village of seti Beni is just a short
walk upstream and guarantees to delight with its
stone flagged lanes and curious youngsters
Day 03: As we continue downstream, the river
cliffs narrow eerily above us and we enter a
somber canyon glistening with wet black rocks.
You experience what can only be seen from the
water, so drink it all in as we drift towards
our take out point. After lunch we take the four
hour drive back to Pohkara.
