Carnage and Zen on the Beas

We have just come off a day run on the Beas that proved to a varied and interesting day.  The river proved to be the definition of “Jazzy:”  One group got on and had a dropped boat and a swim.  This involved chase boating grade V blind as everyone seems to have lost the ability to catch any eddies.

Meanwhile myself and Tom Haywood got on a little further down and had an excellent run of IV+/V with just the two of us.  We must have been in some sort of higher level Zen paddling state as we seemed to cruise down it with out much problem when we should have been bricking it.

This is the second time now I have paddled the Beas and I’m pretty sure it will be my last.  There are definately better rivers in India.

    Hi Tom,

    Beas is a high run from Manali Center down in August. It definately is not a bitch in lower water (September) but, a pure gem.

    Where did you put on/took out?
