Today challenge yourself!! Go for a ‘real’ trek! Dare-devil abseiling down a 50 m waterfall, more than 120 m long zip-lining & cross the mind-blowing ‘via ferrata’!
Our tour takes off at the GDL office with a short drive via Pakpo village boat pier where we cross the Nam Song River, either by boat or a sling bridge. We then embark on a trek that leads us through rice fields.
Depending on the season and corresponding water levels, we may have to cross some small streams with the help of ropes to navigate the rapids. As we reach the first mountain range we make some steep ascents. We hike further into the valley until the terrain gets steeper and steeper again. We may have to cross some streams, but secured by a belay if rainfalls were heavy the days before.
Now is the moment to start zip-lining adventures! However, the real challenge of today starts at the bottom of the waterfall on a so-called ‘via ferrata’ and a crossing a gorge via a U-shaped cable bridge.
Once on top the views of the wonderful limestone scenery reconcile our senses and let us forget any hardship. A welcome rest will refill our energy we need for the next leg of our tour. Our next destination is a 50 m waterfall thundering down high up on the mountain face.
Once having overcome these obstacles, we set up our small camp especially prepared for an overnight stay. To spend your night you can either sleep under the stars on the wooden platform offering a stunning view or in a small bamboo hut which offers three little rooms.
Get ready for a relaxing evening, enjoying the great views and the refreshing cool water of the fall, with good chats and a nice dinner until a rejuvenating sleep overpowers us.
