On the 2nd day of this trip, we have got an honoured guide, Mr. Mor. He is not only the senior staff at national park but he is also well known guide in Huay Muang area. After enjoy spending time at Phurakam National Park, we then decide to not go to the accommodation right away. We prefer to drive the car to discover the paths for riding bicycles. Once, we have done all this, we then head to the accommodation at National Park.
It is the first time that we have met Mr. Mor here, we are not reluctant to discuss more details about cycling paths, he has advised us the special path to do some cycling. It is the original path which is used by the local people in the former time.
Since, Suan Phueng District has been developed, this path is no longer use. There are only some villagers who come and search for young bamboo. We forget to tell you that there are bamboo trees along the way, we could imagine how beautiful it is now. We cannot wait for the trip tomorrow.
Mr. Mor has explained all details to us again and we have attentively listened to him. Furthermore, we also note all details of the direction, this makes us confused somehow as it is too detailed. Hence, we have asked Mr. Mor to lead our trip instead. He will lead us with his favorite motorbike. We all agree to meet each other at Baanraisaingarm Hom Stay at 06.30, we will have breakfast over there and start the trip.
On the 2nd day of this trip, Mr. Mor is on time. We then have sometimes to talk while having breakfast at the same time. At 08.00 hrs., it is time to start our trip. Let's cycling on the former path, it is the path in our imagination. There are only adults who ride bicycles but children prefer to sit on the motorbike with Mr. Mor.
We start from Baanraisaingarm heading to Kaeng Som Meaw, it is so nice.
We turn into Kaeng Som Meaw, it is so beautiful. The more we are close to this place, the more beautiful it is. We enjoy indulging with some fresh air. Once, we arrive at Kaeng Som Meaw, we take a walk to see the bamboo raft. It is actually not crowded
because it is too early I guess.
We continue riding bicycles about 500 meters. The view along the way is so nice and greenery because there are many trees, they have covered all areas. It is the reason, this area us very shady. Once, we have ridden about 1 kilometer, we can now discover the stream.
We continue riding through the bamboo tunnel, it is such a long path. There are dry bamboo leaves along the way, it gives beautiful sound. Furthermore, we have also found some fallen fruits on the ground. At first, we thought it is jujube but we are not so sure. We then ask Mr. Mor whether it is eatable and what is it actually called. He said that it is not jujube but it is one kind of forest fruit (it is called Som Meaw) and it is not eatable. This forest is named as this fruit.
Mr. Mor has also taught us some practice of how to survive in the forest, if those fruits are not eaten by the animals and we could not find any left seeds, that means those fruits are not eatable.
The bamboo trees are along the way, it is about 5 kilometers for the distance. It is so nice for riding bicycles at this moment, we can feel the soft wind and hear the beautiful sound from bamboo leaves. This is exactly same as our imagination that we listened to Mr. Mor yesterday. He has not exaggerated.
We really want you come to this place like us.
Once we have exited from bamboo trees, we have found the rough path. Please be careful while riding, it is necessary to concentrate and control your body. It is not suitable for children, hence children can take this chance to learn about the path first. However, we think they are more joyful to sit on Mr. Mor's motorbike now.
If this is too steep at some parts, we ask children to walk due to security reason.
It takes sometimes to escape from rough path. We feel tired and hungry, we have thought about our lunch boxes which we have put in Mr. Mor's motorbike but Mr. Mor asks us to ride a bit further about 2 kilometers till we will see reservoir and we will have lunch over there.
We are very hungry now. It is so long to reach our destination and it is difficult to ride because it very steep.
Once we reach at reservoir, our tiredness has been released. It is worth to come here, the atmosphere is amazing and the food is so delicious.
Mr. Mor and children have arrived before us. After finishing lunch, we continue riding back to our accommodation, Baanraisaingarm. But, we will ride back on the main road, the distance is about 30 kilometers
We can see that children cannot wait for the next activity, we will go to do rafting. The distance for doing this activity is about 8 kilometers.
We go back to Baanraisaingarm in order to prepare for life vest, then we will go to do rafting by Uncle Toem's car (he is the owner of Baanraisaingarm Home Stay). It is about 5 kilometers from Home Stay to the place where we will do rafting, uncle Toem has illustrated us how to do rafting. Hence, we can ensure that this rafting will be safe. This rafting is very fun, our children really enjoy.
Our children learn to do rafting, they listen to uncle Toem attentively. However, they have found that it is not that easy once they do this alone. They have tried so many times and their effort are finally worth.
The tide is quite strong, our child is a bit nervous. Once she follows our instruction, she can pass it easily. It is time to have fun now.
She is so motivated to do rafting.
The early morning of the 3rd day trip, we just wander and chill out around Baanraisaingarm.
There is no food available at Baanraisaingarm Home Stay, it is necessary that you bring your own food. But, you will be provided for the necessary things for cooking and storing your food. You are able to go there in Summer.
