Kayaking PNG
« on: May 14, 2013, 11:18:19 AM »
A friend recently guided a group of Brazillian kayakers on a wilderness paddle on the headwaters of the Pandi River in New Britain.  There is some awesome country there.

The locals seemed friendly too.

The accomodation may not have been 5 star


It's obviously not easy to get to



But the scenery is pretty amazing

This is what is known as a sink hole.  The water disappears underground at the bottom of the falls and reappears further down the hill.


The guys were very well prepared.

More boring scenery





The good news is there is now a road/track that leads pretty close to this area and it may be accessable by 4WD soon.
There was no fishing on this trip, but the waters are full of Spot Tail Bass and XOS Jungle Perch.

I fish because the little voices in my head tell me to.

Thanks for sharing Dale

Amazing stuff, I love watching it as well. These guys have either no brains or huge balls

Holy cow. I'd just be happy to rock hop down that river with a rod in hand.

This is a few years old but covers the same area.  The Pandi is probably the best river I've ever fished.  I saw some Bream at the mouth last year that would give the average ABT angler nightmares.
