Adrenalin junkies hold on tight but don’t forget to keep glancing back upstream to catch views of the amazing Annapurna’s. Once camped, the village of seti Beni is just a short walk upstream and guarantees to delight with its stone flagged lanes and curious youngsters skylarking.

Day 03: As we continue downstream, the river cliffs narrow eerily above us and we enter a somber canyon glistening with wet black rocks.
