Mid-July we left towards Southern Asia and joined an international group of kayakers to go and explore the whitewater in Tibet. Being known as the roof of the world and containing the tallest mountains in the world left us to wonder what rivers must lie deep in the heart of the Himalayas.

There has been a lot of expeditioning going on in countries like Nepal or India, but there are still a lot of places, rivers, and countries which haven’t necessarily been on the list of kayaking expeditions. There have been a few trips to Tibet done by kayakers, the most famous one probably being Scott Lindgrens and Steve Fishers trip to the Tsang Po, but the eastern part still largely remains untouched, just waiting to be explored. So we followed the call and sent it to Tibet.

The Panther section of the Kaweah, located just upstream of the Hospital Rock section is one of the best day runs in Cali. It’s about a 3 mile hike up but then once you are on the water it’s a few hours of sick boulder gardens, and tons of boofs and slides. By far one of my favorite day runs out there, and I highly recommend getting it if you ever have the chance!
