Next day waited for the vehicle for an hour to take us up the river , finally it came after an hour and travelled about 8km up the mountainous road. We are all fitted with floats and helmet and walked down to the river.
|ENJOYING COOL WATERS|
It was an amazing experience, different from going in a boat, which used to go in Mabukala river, when going to grandmother's house in Balekudru. A couple of places where waves become rapid, movement of raft up and down was fearsome and thrilling,
Further rafting proceeded upto Laksman Jhoola area, got out from the raft walked up with paddle and floats and handed over at the office and went back to the hotel.
|SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT|
The modern raft is an inflatable boat, consisting of very durable, multi-layered rubberized (hypalon) or vinyl fabrics (PVC) with several independent air chambers. Typical lengths vary from 6 m (20 ft) (with a width of 2.5 m (8 ft)) down to very portable single-person packrafts which may be as small as 1.5 metres (4.9 ft) long and weigh as little as 4 pounds (1.8 kg).
