We had direct from the beginning the adventure of jumping/ abseiling. Their was no Sum in the canyon and it was therefor quit cold. Because there was much water in the canyon we didn’t do the last 2 abseilings in the waterfall but we had enough adventure during this trip.

In Germany we say "Angsthase" (as scared bunny, means someone being afraid of stuff), but I totally could put off this title for myself! Its been a very sick experience and can only recommend it for anyone who wants to get that special kick! We've been save the whole time and didn't even think about stopping. You get more than what you paid for!
