On your first day trekking, you will pass many small remote villages, then you will arrive at the last village called Suwanggama. On the next day you will leave the main trail and headed along side a river. The track is very muddy with lots of ups and downs . The toughest two days of the trek are through the jungle in thick deep mud and is very physical. You have to be prepared that you will all covered in mud and wet .
