5 4 Road To Kharta Crosses A River And Becomes Narrow, Kharta  [14 of 41]


The road to Kharta was washed out and we had to cross with the half-metre high water flowing quickly by. Were lucky, Kumar later told us, if it had been a little higher, wed have had to wait until it lowered. We turned south rejoining the Phung Chu (Arun), traveling high above the river on a rough narrow track. We passed through the village of Kharta (3750m) and left the Phung Chu as it entered a gorge on its way to Nepal.
