This trek was exciting and exhausting, from the moment we were off our tree trunk man made log canoe and onto land our guides told us all the things that can go wrong on this trek.
It was 6am and we had hardly slept, so the thought of facing tigers, bears, elephants and all sorts of other scary beautiful wild animals was abit too much at that time. But as we treked further into the jungle you forget about the danger and start looking for these animals, following their tracks.
I learnt so much and was amazed at every animal print, tiger paws, rhino tracks, elephant tracks, bear tracks all were very fresh. We came across remains of what was eaten by tigers not long before and I also learnt these wild elephants that roam through chitwan hate man made structures in their habitat. Majority of huts like this one here have been torn away by wild elephants in anger of us in their territory!
I think the trippiest part of this whole 10hr hike was the fact that our guides had a bamboo stick each, 1 guide infront and 1 behind so we were 'protected' even tho I feel each of us where prey lol...funny not funny!
Anyway we survived like most....but we did hear a few scary stories along the way which kept our attention and adrenaline high.
This hut was where we took a break and ate some lunch and regained our energy, it is apparently meant to protect us but I knew for a fact that any bear or tiger could climb it and an elephant would be as tall as it. I only really felt safe from the rhino's which seemed like our luckiest bet.
Oh and we actually walked with a wild rhino in the streets ... that video to come 😍🤗
