Waterfalls and rapids

On the way there are a wanderer water obstacles, many of whom we have already spoken. But today we'll discuss the special category of challenges - not of water obstacles and barriers to, lie in wait for a traveler when moving along the river or rafting on the river. The most obvious and common of them - the rapids, waterfalls, logjams snag. On overcoming these difficult areas and obstacles we'll talk.

On the site of the river, littered with drift wood all at once difficult and easy. Wade right to dip too difficult and dangerous, as the logs slippery and may be unstable and strong currents can drag a blockage. So, from sin to continue, you should bypass sections of rubble on the beach, especially since such places are rarely extended.

Thresholds - the rocky ridge on the river. Here, go outside rocks. Water wears away thousands of these blocks, and only makes them smooth, but can not carry them down. On the thresholds for accelerated significantly. Among other things, during acquires a complex trajectory. Cascades rapids are interspersed with mini-waterfalls. If during the rafting rapids get into a zone, very high risk of death ... A strong current can drag under stones, a man can throw a ball on the stones, above the surface and underwater.

From a distance you can hear the noise of approaching rapids. In order not to lose time and get to the shore, should keep their ears above water. If your "locators" are shipped - you will not hear the roar of a waterfall or rapids. Rapids areas should bypass the shore. If you do not have time or unapproachable shore, the raft should be feet first, to repel them from underwater boulders. Otherwise, you can begin to twist and can zvezdanutsya head.

Waterfalls

Falls far more treacherous and dangerous rapids. Firstly, the approach of the waterfall at river rafting, do not hear so much as the roar of the rapids. Secondly, the height of the waterfall can be anyone and not the fact that right under the dumped water - a deep plot. If so - good. Even if pre-identify a waterfall and was unable to get out on the beach too late, grouped in a second, you'll splash down normally. If water falls on the stone peak - Khan!

Down

If you managed to get ashore, still have to go down to the waterfall, only much slower. Typically, bypass and look for more gentle descent - it is long and not always real, to the same - you can go astray and lose the river. So better get down here, next to the stream. Use a rope to descend, lianas, trunks snag. Try to choose the drier areas, the stones and the rock beneath his feet were not so slippery.
