One of the many amazing things about this adventure was the different climates that we experienced during each section of the journey. The final part of our trek was down through a jungle like tropical climate that progressively got warmer as we descended along the path that was lined with all sorts of native flora and fauna.
Although it was all down hill, things were not as easy as we imagined with the loose dirt making it very easy to end up on one's ass. Surprisingly, it was actually easier to run and use our walking sticks to balance and bounce off... stopping however, was another story all together. Somehow in flip flops or bare foot, the porters still managed to be two steps ahead.
