    The river have some rapids class I or Class I+, but depending of the water level some people can be nervous, or your safety could be compromised, in all rapids there is a dry exit available to avoid it.

Because of National Park regulations, there will be an Indian motorized boat along, just in case someone get tired or need assistance. You must bring the life jacket on the water. The medical assistance is at least two days away, so prevention is the key for your safety. 

The weather is hot during the day, the night are fresh, the water is warm, is common  rainy days, there are mosquitoes, so, bring light clothes for day, dry and comfortable clothes for nights, wet shoes, hat, rain jacket and insect repellent.

The best time of the year for this trip is in the raining season, you need high water level to reach the waterfall base, that means the weather could be wet some time.
