Driftaway: expedition style

 

On your next trip don’t go to a home away from home. Do something you have never done before.

Like go up the sweeping Munsiyari valley on a mountain bike. Then ride it along the Gori ganga to The Maha Kali. Camp next to the jungle. A tearful adieu to your bike. Get into the Driter raft to roll down through wilderness of the Maha Kali that runs between Nepal and India. Swim down for as long as you want along with golden Mahaseer. Where-no-one -has -been beach for the night.

Reach somewhere else. Surprise yourself.
