7 Weeks in Tibet
In the fall of 2007 Dave Kwant and a bunch of friends packed up our famous Green Truck boating bus and headed out to East Tibet for 7 weeks of kayaking some of the most spectacular rivers in Tibet.
Follow an international team of 6 whitewater kayakers as they embark on a journey of a lifetime. Their challenging attempt to be the first to paddle the length of the PARLUNG TSANGPO river in Tibet takes them deep into the heart of the Himalayas. From there they have to survive an incredible 12 days on the river battling their way through huge whitewater rapids. Friendships, skill and nerves will all be tested to the limit.
