Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
2000, 1st edition. 293 pp, photos, maps. Running through the southwest corner of Tibet is the Tsangpo River, a dangerous uncharteed whitewater passage. It is also a place of beauty, coursing through snow-capped mountain ranges and ripping through verdant jungle. Local legend calls this place the sacred site of Shangri-La. According to kayaking legend, the Tsangpo Gorge is the Holy Grail of rafting. In October 1998, a team sponsored by National Geographic set out to conquer it. En route they discovered that National Geographic had also sponsored another team whose descent was timed just after their own. The chances of success were slim, but the race was officially on. Hardcover, DJ, New.
