Suddenly we heard a vehicle approaching. An auto rickshaw with 3 men onboard. Being on an adventure means you always need to stay alert and be prepared to aptly react to a dangerous situation. Disembarking from the vehicle, they approached us and started talking in their native language. Watching our blank faces and inferring that we didn’t understand a single word they uttered, one of them waded to the river and started pointing to us on how we should cross the river with the bike.
We felt utterly grateful that those people just happened to come there for fishing (we later gathered that from animated hand gestures) and assisted us in crossing the river! We carried on our merry little way, trespassed a couple of private properties and later camped at an aesthetic location.
