Akishma is the most difficult river for rafting in the Khabarovsk territory.
In 1992 together with a group of American tourists, we rafted along the Akishma river. It was the first group of foreign tourists who rafted in the Russian Far East. Unfortunately at that time we did't have digital cameras, so photos are not very good quality.
I am ready for journey!
We started our journey from the bank of Amur river, where we boarded the helicopter.
Airport in the village Chegdomin. We were waiting for good weather to continue our flight to the river.
