You will be high in the mountains for the first half of the day following a ridge line up and down with peaks all around. In the afternoon it is time to relax a bit as the road is largely downhill along a valley to our overnight stop of Kiew Ka Cham, a small village on top of the mountains. Few people stop here overnight so the accommodation is very simple. It is special experience to stay in such a place.
