(45/95 in case you are counting…)
It’s hard to tell this morning if the sky is overcast with a threat of rain or just the “normal” amount of pollution. It likely wasn’t great before the earthquake, but since then more and more people have had to rely on burning wood for cooking and heating. In turn this makes for haze, in many cases the air is brown.
We are off today for the Seti River. The alleged plan is for rafting this morning and this afternoon followed by some hiking/trekking tomorrow. The river is down, so I don’t think I really have to worry much about rapids.
From there it will be overland to Chitwan where hopefully tigers will make an appearance. In any case, wifi is not present.
and how it went
and we set off down the river in three rafts.
along the river –
we had plenty of time to look and relax. Class I rapids if you want the absolute truth and about 2 1/2 hours to drift the 12 miles or so we traveled. Hari – our guide – mentioned having done this segment in 45 minutes right after monsoon season.
