Hell or Highwater! Kayaking the World's Largest Gorge in Tibet

Imagine a gorge that is 3X deeper and 8X steeper than the Grand Canyon. Now imagine kayaking its treacherous waters. It's called the Tsangpo River Gorge in Eastern Tibet that is considered sacred to Buddhists and is the inspiration for James Hilton's "Shangri-La." For Beyond 50's "Travel" talks, listen to an interview with Peter Heller who followed a whitewater expedition to kayak these waters and lived to tell about it. He'll also discuss about his great experiences with the Tibetans of the area. Tune in to celebrate May as Asian American Heritage Month on Beyond 50. *Produced and syndicated by Joy and Daniel Davis of Beyond 50 Productions. **Tune in to Beyond 50 Radio: America's Talk Show for Baby Boomers that promotes the healthy lifestyle for those in midlife.
