Nouria Newman combines a surprising adeptness at playing on white waters with an endless thirst for discovering new horizons. Nouria decided to head North in India to achieve her goal of kayaking. She had already heard of Zanskar and the lower part of the Indus, both of which are world famous. She started in Zanskar, headed to Indus and transitioned through beautiful places of India while trying to survive very dangerous situations, both in rivers and on land.
