The Lion River, Indus (Pakistan)
Follow Adrian Mattern Bren Orton, Daniel Egger, Kristof Stursa, Sam Grafton and Thomas Neime down the Indus River in Pakistan.
Whilst the Indus is the only river featured on this edit we also kayaked the Gilgit, Astore and Hunza rivers all of which are much lower volume than the indus and contain everything from steep class 5 kayaking to perfect stretches for beginners.
We where continually blown away by the friendliness and the hospitality of the local people and just how safe and easy it is to get around in this country! Pakistan’s reputation has been unfortunately tainted over years of past with several extremist groups causing security issues in the country, thankfully the dark days of fighting are over and Pakistan’s reputation and tourism industry is steadily recovering.
