White Water rafting @ River Beas

Posted by
Sunder (Chennai, India) on 2 June 2011 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

The river Beas at this time of the year is relatively shallow and the rapids looked rather benign - not all that wild.

These thoughts gave a false sense of complacency - that I was taken by surprise - well..actually a rude shock....
I refer to the icy-cold-water-drenching which was not easy to cope with - to say the least....

Fun ? yes....but no thanks....
No more rafting for me.....

Oh the freedom of it all. Just beautiful! Love the vastness of nature surrounding the little humans. It does look like it could be a bit of a challenge. Not for me either. : )

@CElliottUK: Yes, I did it - only to experience the biting cold After drying myself ,I then clciked pictures of those unsuspecting souls - Some found it very amusing and diverting....As they say -"It takes all kinds"

A wonderful grand view in this shot Sunder! Great sense of turbulence in the water. I would be most fearful for my camera...... ;-)

Wherever there is white water, there is a lot of power that can take you on a wild ride as you found out it seems. A cool shot.
