For three weeks in October 2000 a few friends (okay, 16 of us) met up in remote western Nepal to paddle one of the wildest class IV and V rivers around - the Karnali. We followed this up with a kayak run of the upper Seti river and the magnificant Marsyandi river.

Here are my pictures from the trip

Until I write the sordid story, here are a few links to other Karnali sites on the web:

ALSO - pick up Peter Knowles' excellent guide book "White Water Nepal" (second edition, printed in 2000).
