Early morning wake-up to attend the sunrise
over the Chieo Larn Lake. I love these furtive hours, when there is an absolute calm. The water surface is as smooth as a mirror. We leave by boat from the hotel (pictures 2 & 3) to go to Klong Saeng, Klong Ek and Klong Yee.
The scenic beauty is breathtaking! More enigmatic and wilder than during our boat safari, the day before in the late afternoon (pictures 8, 9 & 10). More or less we pass through the same places today. No matter: I do not get tired of the haunting atmosphere around the Chieo Larn Lake …
Exciting to play explorers (lol!). And for big fans of trekking with leeches and other extreme sensations, you can organize trekkings with a guide in the area. Some of us tried the experience!
And well let’s say… when I saw them coming back – after just a couple of hours – like wrecks (red as tomatoes, breathless, super dirty with bites of leeches and so on…), I was SO happy not to have participated to this great trekking of hell! Of course they explained me all the WOW things I missed! LOL!
Now the bottom of the air is fresh, while the sky is between cleared and threatening: the rainy season in Thailand. Slowly the mist surrounding the mountain tops, dissipates (pictures 1, 4,5, 6 & 7). Cold light, output of an array of a Seicento master. Sometimes the landscape reminds of Chinese prints. Next stop in the Khao Sok rainforest : Elephant Hills …
