This is the house where we did homestay. We cooked our dinner and breakfast in their kitchen. Toilet and shower hut is outside. They provided us mosquito nets, mats, a dining table; and we were allowed to their fire wood and kitchen utensils.

Next day morning, after the breakfast, we left the village and took the trail to the east in the direction of Lay Kathit mountains on Mae Klong river. On the way we passed by small streams. This one was the last water available naturally before Mae Klong river on the eastern side of Lay Kathit mountains.

At about 1 p.m. we reached to a view point overlooking the panorama views of Mae Klong river far down below.

After lunch, and enjoying the scenery we moved along the mountain side to the second viewpoint closer to Mae Klong river.

The going down from the viewpoint to the river is quite a steep descent. We used ropes at some sections for safe and faster descent. After that we walked mostly alongside Mae Klong river, passed by paddy farms and finally arrived Klotho canal (downstream of Thilorsu waterfall). We camped on the northern bank.
