Bathtime for the elephants following a days trekking!.
They asked if we wanted the opium-trek or the normal trek! – the ordinary trek please, if you don’t mind!.
You have to be in very good condition for the trek, I wasn´t, my stomach ran “wild” the night before our trek and we had to cancel the adventure.
A 3 day trek starts with an Elephant ride for about 1-2 hours with lunch, then you walk for 2-3 hours and taking a bath in a waterfall.
Now it is time for the 1st camp because the sun sets at 17:30. The next day starts with a 2-3 hour walk up and down the mountains with possibilities for taking a bath in another waterfall, then it´s time for lunch, another 2-3 hour walk before it´s time for 2nd camp.
The third day is like the others with possibilities for meeting locals from the hill tribe villages, the trek ends with bamboo rafting.
Things You need:
Mosquito repellants, long pants,a pair of trainers, extra socks, shorts, a jacket with long sleeves, t-shirts, jumper,flashlight, swim suit, towel, toilet paper, a hat, first aid kit, sun cream, toothbrush and tooth paste, money for buying things from hill tribes.
