Huallaga Video

Posted November 24th, 2010 in Blog

The last major tributary of the Amazon yet to be Navigated! The run-ablity of the gorges amazed us as we had no major portages past the chalkstone. I’d highly recommend this run to anybody who enjoys multi-day adventures, though the clock may be ticking. Rumor has it that the Great Bend of the Huallaga will be inundated by 2013. We saw evidence of the possible dam site, though hard facts have been difficult to nail down.

This little clip showcases some of the classic runs around Cuzco.
Enjoy

In 2011 Telluride Kayak School will be offering guided kayak trips to Peru. The rivers slated for this trip include: Cotahuasi, Colca, Apurimac and the Paucartambo. Many thanks to Immersion Research for the Semi Dry Top, Splash Pants and the Lucky Charm squirt. It was the perfect jungle trekking ensemble.
