Inand, up north - toward the chinese border i lost a family member who was with official guides who did not alert him (nor his friends) to underground pools when they went to swim in a river. Though locals had drowned there,(and teh guides knew) the newspaper account said he was the first American to drown there. A sad and senseless tragedy.
