One thing I loved about this walk is that there are no guard rails- walkers were responsible for their own welfare.
Plastic was confiscated at the entrance. We had some small fruit in a plastic bag which they transferred into a paper bag. I had trouble breathing while doing the climbs, but thoroughly enjoyed the walk as a whole.

I loved the hike and the misty hills. Learnt quite a bit about cloud forests and my friends even spotted a leopard on our way back.

We cought the perfect day; clear and sunny. The scenery is very beautiful. We visited this area with a tuk-tuk which I really like as you are basically sitting outside enjoying the views.

The circular trail is 8km long and on average takes 3 hours to complete which allows time for a breakfast picnic / photographs / simply admiring the views. There is no need for a guide and I'm not even sure they are available such is the trail so easy to follow. An early start is required as apparently the cloud comes in daily mid morning onwards. Temperature was fine even at the 6.30 start (light jacket) and once you get going and the sun warms up, you are soon peeling back the layers to just t-shirt. Very enjoyable and not too taxing - we're in our 50s!

This place needs your early morning attendance. If you are a mountain person and love to trekking - this is the place for you. Just gear up with sports shoes and joggers.

It has mini world ends and all beauty surrounded with mountains and fog.
