There, in the local environmental office, you need to register your name before continuing on a trailer pulled by a small two-wheel tractor for about two hours. Then, walk through the dense jungle up the hill for approximately 5 hours until you reach the destination.
Second Day: Experience the Incredible View of Sunrise and Sunset on Khnang Phsa
