Gyatse Gorge of the Tsangpo in SE Tibet, 2007

The 1998 Chinese team portaged Gyatse Gorge (also spelled Gyantze). A team organized by Windhorse Adventures team (Willy Kern, Jed & Peter Weingarten and Tracey Bowerman) completed the first descent of the lower 35 miles of this 50 miles roadless canyon ( 29.340828, 90.761943 to 29.128574, 92.595336).

Gyatze Gorge is not a good repeat run.
