Karnali in 30 frames

Never travel without a good friend!

Tata keeps you going! Private shuttle bus service provided by Paddle Nepal

Day one: 17 hours on the bus

Day two: Surrounded by the local people at the put in

Stunning scenery and some big volume
rapids in the sunny Karnali gorge

Djange feeling small with the gear raft #2
(the more important one because of the rum)

10 days, 25 people, lots of food...

…but you can always buy a pig in a riverside village to have a good barbecue!

Late afternoon in the camp...

…turning into night.

Another beautiful camp spot on the Karnali,
not a bad place to have a little birthday party!

The morning after

Getting ready for some action!

Feeling small again...

…and again.

Just when you thought "I made it!"...

Hmm… which way to go?

The local Jätkänkynttilä-bridge at the take out

17 more hours to go...

The team

The man who makes miracles happen!
(Providing ice cream on a remote multi day river adventure in nearly tropical conditions,
taking care of nine aboriginals from Muonio on those same conditions, just to mention a few...)

Find a mistake in the picture!
