We’ve been publishing consecutive galleries of Chris Korbulic’s experience on the Siang and Siyom, but the third and final installment in his Epics of India series is, we think, the best. Our reasoning is that—sure the action is always impressive—but this final gallery focuses on the return, the culture and the adventure travel aspect of one of the most populated nations on earth.
It is a great conclusion to Chris Korbulic, Ben Stookesberry, and Pedro Oliva’s running of what Korbulic called “a wonderland of rivers and first descents, still almost completely dam-free and pretty wild-feeling but still very welcoming. It may be our favorite place in the world to paddle.” And the images definitely do it justice.—LYA Editor
