Not too sure why either, I'm not fat and I'd even swapped tubes with no improvement. For the most part the river was calm, but there were some very light currents in places, and shallow bits where you really had to lift your bum.

But when we got there we found that the prices that were quoted on their website and in all the guidebooks had recently skyrocketed. Luckily we had our tent, so we could afford to camp.

We returned the way we came in with the exception of the ladders, we were sent down a waterfall slide into the dark abyss below - no point taking a candle here because you went under the water with the speed of the fall.
