Set to go! After a couple of days paddling here in Nepal we are now prepared to hit the road. Prepared meaning weve eaten enough yak steak and drunk enough beer!
Arunachal Pradesh is a good haul from Kathmandu with some poor roading along the way. The drive will take about two and a half days, thats a good honest stint of Guns and Roses! (Shalab and Sanggrup's favourite tape)
After crossing the border back into India and the province of Assam we will gather a few last minute supplies before climbing into the mountains once again.
Our plan is to start in the west and explore river drainages that feed the Kaming river. From there we will move east towards other massive rivers that drain from the Indian/Chinese border. The monsoon arrived late this year and there has been considerable rainfall in the last two weeks.
All river start points and predicted take outs have been detailed in our permits. Fingers crossed we will travel without drawing to much attention to ourselves and keep clear of the forest service radar! There is bound to be something unexpected lying hidden in the next three weeks though, im certain of that!
The team - Mike Abbott (NZ) Allan Ellard (UK) Sam Hughes (UK) Andy Phillips (UK) Shalab Gaulaut (India) and myself.
