You assemble at the DutchCo's meeting point/depot at 08.00 am unless you arranged pick up at your guests house. Departure time is 08.30 which gives you half an hour to organize your back-packs. At 08.30 we leave by car, minivan or trekking truck northern direction of Voensai. In Kachon we take take a narrow long boat that takes us up stream the Sesan river for about one hour. During this river trip you can enjoy beautiful panoramic views with the High jungle covered mountains of the Virachey NP in the far distance. Most parts of the river banks have dense vegetation where birds find shelter. Small farm houses at the Sesan river bank share the same habitat. Once you arrive at Leng Auw village, you need to register at the village Chief's house and pay an entrance fee of $2.50 p.p. (Not included in the package price). We can make some final adjustments and once we met with the local indigenous ranger we start our trek. We start walking through a variety of landscapes. Patches of forests alternate with rice paddy fields. Soon we leave civilisation behind and trek through the jungle forests.
After a 20 minute walk we have to cross the O’ Plong river. In the dry season (January -May) we can wade across and in the wet season we need to use a bamboo raft or take a small boat. The further north you go, the denser the forest. We take some gentle hill slopes up and down, but mainly the paths are flat. When we arrive at the high lands, you can have a break and enjoy the beautiful panoramic view over the jungles canopy to the horizon. During the trek we take regular breaks to enjoy the surrounding and to rest a little bit. Your guide will explain about forest foods like edible fruits, vegetables and medicinal plants and trees. Also he explains some of the indigenous hunting techniques.
