Our guide had told us that there was a good point for jumping from and when we booked the tour we were all quite game, but as we surveyed said jumping point the bravado seemed to evaporate. The point was a good 10m up and from where we were looking at it, but it seemd a long way down After we watched one other adventurous chap do we decided that we couldn't be out done and Leah and I climbed to the top whilst Kelly stayed at the bottom to 'take the photos'(wise move). When we were at the top, the bottom seemed a long way down I can tell you
After all that adrenalin inducing exciitement we returned to the camp for lunch during which a couple of elephants lumbered in with provisions for the trekkers that weekend, over 1000 were expected, we were very glad we had visited when we did. We set off on a hike to our next stop, a Karen Tribe village which involved a very sweaty 2hr hike through the jungle following, in some places, in the giant footsteps of the elephants. the walk was varied and we passed many villagers who were busily cutting in a track and foraging for food. We eventually stepped out into a clearing and we saw the village before us with the lovely wooden houses and the distinctive bright pink sarongs hanging out to dry.
Moses led us to the purpose built bamboo hut which his company had given money to the villagers to buy
After the grand tour we returned to base for dinner and then Moses had prepared some after dinner tricks which we were obliged to take part in under threat of "no elephant!" moses found our lack of initiative in solving the puzzles more and more amusing as more and more rice wine went down (I tried the rice wine earlier in the evening, v. strong stuff!). Eventually we managed to eacape and headed to bed in our little tents of mosquito net in a whole hut of our own.
