We left the hut at 6am to see sun rise.

It was still dark in the forest. Speeding up hill I was out of breath. When I passed the tree line the high ridges were glowing red and clear blue sky was spreading above.

Soon after the sun came out from the other side.

Sky changing it color, sun rising slowly in cold clear air and flow of monuments it was just beautiful.

I was keeping up with Nobu’s pace thanks for the half rest yesterday.

The last section today was multiple river crossing. Walking in the clear stream felt good I didn’t mind my shoes getting wet.

These crossing are impassable with heavy rain fall. Tropic cyclone was coming day after tomorrow and I was so glad we passed this part.
