Mission East to West (Nepal) – Trailer
Nepal whitewater legend Anup Gurung is back with another masterpiece project. In the next five months, heand a team of top Nepali paddlers, aim to cross Nepal from east to west, paddling all the rivers on his way, but also explore, witness, and document his fast-changing, beloved country as it confronts globalisation.
« We will be kayaking all the major rivers of Nepal from the east to west of Nepal. I will be sharing this journey with young Nepali paddlers and friends from around the world. Yet, this is not just about our journey. It is not just about paddling or extreme kayaking, neither is it only about the river, or being patriotic. This is about the people we will meet along the way, about their stories and their experiences of the fast and scary development of rural nepal. This is about the streams I used to swim in, the rivers I used to paddle, the juicy fruit garden , the fresh air I used to breath. This is about seeing what’s left of my childhood. This is Mission East to West. »
