Namaste! After I won the Himalayan Whitewater Festival I went back to good old Pokhara. It's a good place to relax and get ready for the next mission.
Close to town is the Seti River. After one run of the upper Seti five weeks ago, I said:"Never again!" It was just rocky bullshit. But then, Anton and Will came back from a first descent of one canyon further upstream of the normal put-in and told us about great waterfalls in a narrow canyon.
So we went up there for a few times and paddled the shit. It was just incredible to find waterfalls like this in Nepal! So much FUN! Enjoy the pictures...
Yesterday we came back from a other trip up there. But this time we went further up to a other canyon which nobody had run before. It wasn't that good, just two nice drops and the rest portage. But still a good adventure with campfire, sleeping outside, climbing through the jungle and exploring a beautiful valley where not many people have been before.
Now I'm back in Pokhara, waiting for a call from the police so that i can pick up my kayak. I'm such a lucky man that they found it and the guy who have stolen it! Yeahh, I hope he goes to jail!
