The First Kayak Descent of This Gorge is Actually Insane

These kayakers just completed a feat that was "way beyond anything anyone's ever attempted in a kayak." 

A group of professional kayakers headed deep into the jungle in Papa New Guinea to complete the first descent of the Beriman Gorge, a 25-mile run lined with sheer limestone walls that rise up to 4,000 feet above the river. Basically, they were smack in the middle of a vertical jungle. Once they were in there, there was no chance for rescue or resupply—there was no way out but to ride the gnarly – but absolutely beautiful – river to the ocean.
