Waking up after our first day of trekking was hard, especially when getting a full night’s sleep was impossible thanks to all the roosters who started cock-a-doodle-doing at 2am. We had a big breakfast and prepared to trek for 6 hours. I was pretty reluctant to trek because of how difficult I found the first day, but there was nowhere to go but forward. We had some difficult times during our hike which we pushed through with encouragement and a little singing, but it was all worth it when we reached the peak of the mountain, where the view was breathtaking. From there we only had two more minutes of trekking to the village where we would spend the night. Along the way we were able to meet some great guides as well as a dog named Mo who followed us the whole way. I’m looking forward to our final day of trekking downhill and some RnR back in Chiang Mai.
