Both sides of the river is clad in native forest, inhabited by Karen people. We will stay overnight at the Karen village of Moo Ban Pong Moo Red, with a dinner party around the fire.
Day 2: Breakfast at homestay, and get back into the kayaks. The water in this section is Grade II to III with some small rapids that are easy enough to negotiate for novices.
