On the road up to the Braldu, my heart slowed, sad and quiet. We crossed the Indus and kept driving. It was a long day, made longer by the rushing waves of the river at roadside. In the isolated hamlet we sit. Cold tired, beated kayakers.
The Braldu rushes from K2, in our minds a ball of knots and confusion. 12 months previously almost to the day, we were on the Dudh Kosi. It was in the footsteps of Mike Jones that we walked, silence and tender steps. Now on the eve of my return to the Dudh Kosi I have looked again to Mike and his pioneering spirit.
We are lucky to be in a sport that has pioneers like this. Perhaps Walt or Rob, Shaun or Jim. Mentors, should they want to be or not.

  1. What a fantastic Company!!!!! they are simply a class act. I was so lucky to go to Nepal.Like the James Bond movie "Nobody does it better" . If you do anything in your life check them out. They care they make you feel at ease, and most of all they make it special. I want to go to Zanskar with them soon.Daz and Andrea are two amazing people. Don't hold back talk to Daz and he will help you to achieve your dream. Safe Secure and Fun.
