Watut River - Papua New Guinea

Recently Barny Young, Shannon Mast and Myself had a successful kayaking expedition to Papua New Guinea. During our 26 days there we visited 5 provinces, all on the deck of a landcruiser, and were able to tick off 8 class IV-V first descents. During our first couple of days we were invited to Middle Watut to paddle the infamous rapids that took the lives of an Isreali rafting group more than ten years ago. Here are some photos from that trip...
