Beautiful Canyons #7



5/5 (6)


It is the cradle of Shangri-la and one of the deepest river canyons on earth. It is a fortress guarding sacred waterfalls and a cauldron of wild whitewater and impassable rapids. It is a Himalayan gorge so shrouded in mystery and danger that a legendary waterfall in its depths, sought by explorers for more than a hundred years, was not even photographed until the end of the 20th century. And it is a place like Everest, shimmering with mythic lore and menacing superlatives. By some standards, it is the deepest river gorge in the world - three times deeper, with a river drop eight times steeper than the Grand Canyon. The Yarlung Tsangpo, which runs nearly a thousand miles from west to east across Tibet at about 10,000 feet above sea level, enters the gorge and loses almost all of its elevation in a thunderous 150 miles. Along the way, it cuts a deep channel between the great peaks of Namcha Barwa and Gyala Pelri, only 13 miles apart.

Experience one of the most unfathomable and mysterious parts of the world. You need an aircraft that is both maneuverable and reliable at high altitudes. The Pilatus PC6 should meet all the requirements. As with all Canyon Series trips, live weather is preset to provide you with new challenges every time you take off. However, you can adjust the weather at any time to match the difficulty of the mission to your experience level.

This package also includes the airport of Tuting (VETU), which is also available for you in free flights.
