Very varied trail. Difficulty level for me as a 77 year old just at the limit. Our guide was approachable and very knowledgeable. On the trail we were also accompanied by a resident Karen who pointed out snakes several times. Although not included in the tour, our guide also took us to Doi Inthanon.

It was a very long day but worth it. I would do it again with the same guide who was extremely patient, helpful and happy to share her knowledge with the group. The day was well planned with regular breaks and lovely lunch and tea/coffee break.

I really enjoyed this trip, our tour guide was very informative. My favorite part was the water fall. It was utterly stunning.
