Trekking off the Beaten Track Trang Thailand Travel Guide
Thailand Travel Guide Trekking off the Beaten Track Trang

Trekking off the Beaten Track Trang Thailand Travel Guide The sweat is draining from my clothes. The coolness of the air sheltered from the sun under a forest canopy does not help much. People move up and down along a narrow trail that cuts through a misty curtain of rainforest trees like a caravan of ants searching for a new nesting ground. Phu Pha Mek, a towering 1,200-metre mountain in the Khao Ban That range, in Trang, where trekking activity is relatively new. Trang is well known as a beach destination for those who prefer to go off the beaten track. There are quite a few islands off Trang province that entice people in search of destinations away from the crowds. After spending several hours climbing the steep landscape, I felt as if the ascent would never end. The top to Phu Pha Mek seemed to be so far away. The soaring humidity and harsh landscape of the rainy season made one ignore biting insects and blood-sucking leeches that appeared each step you moved. But we saw only a few of them.
