River Canyoning Recce 4th November 2013
We had gone on a river canyoning in Umwai river again on the 4th November 2013 and proceeded further from where we had left done on 10th March 2013. We reached up to the edge of the vertical cliff took bath in the waterfall falling from the cliff edge hundreds of feet above. Water flow in the waterfall was less and hence we could stand under the falls, else one could not stand under these waterfalls. The going became steep and tough as we reached the upper reaches of the river / stream. We had to negotiate many huge boulders. When the boulders were vertical rock faces, we found a way up the river bank navigating through trees standing on very steep slopes and descended back to the river bed to push forward on our trail. On this trip we were four of us Joel, Batskhem, Freddie and myself. I am not able to up load the pictures right away. What you see here is the pictures taken on 10th March 2013. Idea is to introduce new River Canyoning and trekking options for our guests. It was new terrain for us too. I have posted the 10th March pictures in the Picture Gallery under the head River Canyoning March 2013. It was a great experience this time too on 4th November 2013, as it is ever.
