In the morning we drive along picturesque scenic roads to the Pinhatt Mountain Trailhead, where we start our journey. The first section of trail is through ethnic minority farms and pine forest. You may even meet an elephant along the way. They live at the lake and are tame. We continue to walk through forest paths until we arrive at the base of Pinhatt. Here we can take a short rest to gain strength for the steep uphill climb (45 minutes) to the summit of Pinhatt. You will be treated to a picnic lunch of fresh vegetables and fruits, baguettes with an assortment of toppings and a French-style pastry to satisfy your hunger. After lunch and a rest on the mountain-top, we descend and you will notice a very dramatic difference in the flora and fauna. The valley you enter is no longer pine forest, but the tropical jungle that Vietnam is so famous for. You will descend on the other side, at a campsite where you can relax or take a swim until dinner.
