Steve is joined by whitewater kayakers Darren Clarkson-King, Sal Montgomery, James Bebbington and Chencho Drukpa, to help ensure a safe passage through Bhutan’s intense rapids. Before beginning their expedition, they survey their route by land to get a better sense of what they might encounter along their journey, including dangerous “stoppers" which can pull kayakers underwater.
