The thing that really stands out in my mind about the T-canyon was that it was not an easy boat to pull an ender / pirouette / loop in old school terms, but when you did - they went massive.

Re: Kayak Tsarp Zankar HOW much£

Yeh, high volume Tsarap and you'll likely be taking a couple of sneak lines. And one or two easy lines around on the bank that you normally could paddle if it was lower levels. Does mean the flatter sections are easier on your arms though.
