    Day 5 : Remala to Karsha (11,500ft)

    Description :

    After an early wake-up call and breakfast, we pack up and load our expedition gear on to the rafts. We start our rafting expedition. We raft 30 km in about 3 to 4 hours which includes a small break as we pass by the Karsha Gompa complex. Throughout the day we are surrounded by 6000 metre high peaks. The River today is a Class II - III section, a good introduction for first timers as well as to the river in general. We negotiate a braided river which at times often splits in to as many as 10 channels with only one or two good enough for the rafts to cross. Settle into camp at Karsha. Easy day to get used to the river, the altitude and better our paddling skills. We hike to the Karsha Gompa after setup, or just choose to laze at the camp site. O/N CAMP.
