We were fortunate to have good weather so the trekking is smooth and not so muddy. Some parts of the journey were on concrete/stone roads so that’s less difficult. The guide was nice and speak English, though not grammatically correct but you can understand what she is saying. This journey brings you close up to see the beauty of the mountains and the fields. Recommend if you have the time.

The hiking tour through the rice fields to the small village was a lot of fun despite the rain and fog. In between, the guides kept telling us something about culture and the manufacture of products. At the beginning, women walked with us, who helped us on the very muddy paths, who later wanted to sell their products. But some of the help was really needed. They weren't pushy when it came to selling, they just tried to sell and advertise the products. The food was really good and is highly recommended. The best thing was the positive nature of the tour guide, who simply put us in a good mood, even when the conditions were really bad at first (rain, fog, mud). However, if you are not good on foot, you should not do this tour.

The tour itself was quite good, unfortunately it was totally foggy and you couldn't see much. But the way was exciting, a lot of mud and rain and slippery paths. I would have liked more information about the landscape etc. Our guide wasn't that great. There are many people who end up wanting to sell you something. The food was ok, nothing special. But the group caught it all. Can be done, does not have to be
