How tough are the Keng Tung Treks?
16th August, 2014
Anyone know the weather in November? What to wear? And the level of trek this is. Moderate? Or Extreme?
**Here is what one guide says after my prodding to find out how steep I am to expect:**
At Pin Tauk area, the climb is around 100 meters up, total walk from a village to another is around 3 hours.
At Lahu Shi area, the climb is around 400 meters steep , one way 3 hours walk up, total walk is over 5 hours.
Ho Kyim area, the climb is 1 hour over 150 meters steep, but after the trek around the villages, 2 hours down from 1200 meters to 900 meters.
Wan Nyag Wan Sen area, 1:30 hours climb over 200 meters high to Wan Nyag, another hour walk up over 100 meters. Total walk is nearly 5 hours.
Some of the options do seem strenuous! Common sense tells me I can go at my own pace. Rest when I need to. But still some of these treks seem challenging. Has anyone experience or knows what level these treks are?
I consider myself a healthy 65 year old man, but def not 35 year old. So wonder what kind of people do these treks? Any advice?
