While in Ecuador, I was able to get on this section a number of times, at a variety of water levels. We paddled from the foot bridge at Cotundo down to the Kayaker Hostal of Oso Perezoso at different times. My first day we had a ton of rain and lighting during our first lap down the Upper into the Middle Misahullai. While having a beer at Oso Perezoso the river came up a couple of feet. So myself and Lau headed back up for another lap. That was a excellent day of kayaking. With it’s close location to Tena it made for a great run. The river also has boulder gardens that dreams are made of.
Enjoy the pictures from a couple different runs below.
