Below few photos of my very "favourite" plants ;)
It's beautiful! Even though it is not easy to move around it because of the terrain, lots of thorny plants and a number of streams and rivers that after every rain turn into insurmountable obstacles, each day spent here is a pure pleasure. Fact is, that to walk the distance of several kilometers sometimes takes all day and requires climbing up and down the hills what with the slippery clay surface is a challenge both ways. Sometimes, in the first minutes of work we come across a river so deep that to cross it we need to carry our backpack above our heads not to wet the equipment. Another time, when we manage to stay dry through the first half of the day almost certainly in the second the rain will start so we will get wet anyway. But what else can you expect from the rain forest? You can quickly get used to being wet, as well as things like leeches, horseflies and other biting insects. I personally do not like climbing up the hills, but I sort of accepted it. In some cases I even enjoy it. Especially if the summit offers beautiful views and the signal of orangutans can be received from there, which is most likely in places of high altitudes. But there is one aspect of the forest that gives me a hard time – rattan and any other this kind of thorny plants. There are so may of these here! They are equipped with various types of spikes, hooks, needles, etc. Rattan, for example releases long whiskers that are covered with hooks on the whole length. These whiskers are often difficult to see so I again and again fall into their trap. They cut the skin, clothes, adhere to everything and often remain in the body, causing additional pain and the need to remove them. Not a day goes by that I managed to avoid being scratched by rattan. Plant with thorny stems and trunks are another story. While climbing the slippery hill I usually catch each encountered tree to pull myself up. How many times I caught the thorny plant, I can not even count, and although I try to scan the environment, choose the best route and avoid new scratches every day is not always possible. But still regardless of the number of new cuts, bruises, bites and bites gained each day and I love this place :).
