Weeks of whitewater in the Indian Himalaya [PICs]
THIS OCTOBER, I headed over to the subcontinent to catch up with my wife, Kelly, and her kayaking partner, Lisa, for a month of paddling in Northern India.
Although I missed out on the high alpine river valleys of the Ladakh region, where Kelly and Lisa had spent the previous month, we were able to paddle Himachal Pradesh and Uttarkhand while basing out of Manali and Rishikesh. The rivers took us from the alpine to the jungle with plenty of great rapids and mountain scenery, and it was the perfect trip to get the flavor of whitewater in the Indian Himalaya.
