Arriving In India

Arriving In India

Epic first day in India! We paddled the Iri Janipura river which was massive and we think it is the highest descent so far. Levels where rising on us throughout our session which made it pretty intimidating and we where all pretty stoked to be off the river at the bottom. Got into a good old cluster f**k and couldn’t find our driver, waited in the rain for a few hours before being rescued… So far India has been awesome!

Tsarap Chu And Zanskar Descent

It’s been only a short while since the one day Tsarap Chu and Zanskar descent. In Ladakh, India. The 20hr50min paddle. The 240km descent, the boxed walls, the long rapids, the silent cries in the night.

I get asked daily, why? What pleasure was in it? Is it worth it?

I’ve not come up with a real answer before – Mallory’s quip unsatisfactory – it’s always going to be there.

Perhaps I can sum up why I enjoy the isolation of a long paddle, even with peers, perhaps it’s also an explanation for those that don’t understand solo paddling as a concept. They both run as parallels for me.

Unsponsored Q&A – Goma Sunuwar

As Nepal came to terms with the after effects of the Quakes in the spring of 2015 one woman shone like a beacon of hope for the emerging nation. Assisted across the border to India by returning aid convoys and a network of friends. Goma Sunuwar made her way to the Malabar River Festival, paddling the Ganga and Coorg along the way.

Unsponsored Q&A - Goma Sunuwar

Prejudice is always high and female kayakers in India and Nepal are a rare sight. ‘Should you be married now?’, can you imagine.

We caught up with Goma in India and followed her progress later as she trained for Slalom competition in Indonesia.
