Pretty cool. Wouldn't want to be in that canyon when it rains. That conglomerate probably sheds bowling balls into the stream!

I kept waiting for them to pop their tubes on the side walls. Those boats tend stay up right quite well.

Daydreaming of Xinjiang/Kyrgyzstan trip

Here's a thread from this winter that grew from the same video. I was also quite enamored with that footage and began researching Russian rafting history and the rivers of western China.

Long story short: Russian boaters are running Chinese whitewater and it is the sickest thing happening in rafting today.
