Dinner and overnight at Putao trekking house.
Breakfast and we visit attractive Putao market often fills withcolorful ethnic minorities. Later we depart by jeep or truck depending on the group size to upper Shangaung with the distance 17 km which takes us about one hour on a rugged road. Our adventure starts as we get off the jeep and start trek to Wasandum with the distance 20 km which takes us about 6 hours trek through Mt. Shangaung at 4468 ft, 1362 meters. First 10 km will be straight up along the trail winding up to the top of Mt. Shangaung from then trail goes all the way down to Wasandum. This will be the testing journey for us as we have to ascend from 1060 meters up to 1362 meters and then descend back to 860 meters. Wasandum is a small Rawan tribe village situates by Namro creek.

Breakfast and everyone is fitted with their specialist rafting gear, while the trip leader gives an extensive lesson in river safety and paddling technique. We pass by the remote Lisuvillage of Nam Ze, at the foot of one of the snow-capped peaks. We encounter some excellent technical rapids after two hours or so down river. We raft further down to our to day destination jungle camp at the beginning of the second canyon. Pack lunch on the way, dinner and overnight at wildness camp.
Breakfast and we start the final and most challenging days rafting. An hour later, we reach three exciting and technical rapids stacked in succession in a tight bedrock canyon. The trio of rapids ends with a bang in a series of drops between massive boulders. From here it is about three hours rafting and leisurely cruising to our meeting point at Mulashidi village, from where we transfer by jeep/truck back to Putao.
