Burungdi Falls section of the Burungdi River

Sean Glaccum and Andreas Sommer are partners in Boathouse Nepal, a Nepali kayaking guide service. In addition to guiding, these guys are definitely pushing the exploratory envelope in one of the most spectacular boating playgrounds in the world. I got connected with Sean and Andy through my German friend Martin Bauer, who hooked up with these guys on a recent kayaking trip to Nepal. If you are thinking about paddling in the Himalayas, Andy and Sean are an excellent resource whether you are looking for class III or class off-the-scale...

One Himalayan playground that Sean and Andy frequent is the Burungdi River, which boasts a series of spectacular waterfalls. In addition to these photos which were sent to me, you can find more Nepal pics and river descriptions/trips at the Boathouse Nepal home page, and see more sweet photos of other waterfalls on the Burungdi River on the Burungdi page for the excellent German Kayaking site Soulboater.
