Day 01: Morning about 7 am, after breakfast drive to the Starting point of Rafting, (69km), Lunch. Drive to put- in (22km). Load rafts - safety briefing depart. The first day provides about three and half hour of pure heart pumping adrenaline. After a long series of class 3 rapids we drop into the first class 4 rapid, "Gerbil in the Plumbing". From here there is a stretch of class 3 whitewater and then we come to the crux of the day, which is a long, technical rapid, "Frog in a Blender". A long series of class 3+/4 rapids lead us into one of the guide's favorites, "Carnal Knowledge of a Deviant Nature". The remaining ten kilometers of river is a non-stop series of technical class 3 and 4 drops. The river flows through a beautiful narrow canyon with lush green vegetation and waterfalls coming in from the steep stone walls. At the bottom of this stretch is the village of Barabise, our take out.
