09:00: Welcome by Ka Lone Htar CBT Club. Visit the ‘forest pharmacy’.
On arrival in Ka Lone Htar, we are met by a local community tour guide, who will give us a quick briefing. Then, we head to the ‘forest pharmacy’, a local initiative to collect and plant a huge variety of traditional herbal medicines. From there, we hike past the village monastery. We stop outside to learn about the community work initiated by the revered local community Monk.
10:00: Hike down the nature trail, through orchards, into the forest
We head out of the village, and into the local fruit orchards where villagers grow a great variety of fruits and crops including cardamom, betel nut, pineapple, cashew nuts, sweet potatoes and banana. The forest is also a living repository of traditional herbal medicines. Our guide will stop along route, explaining about these medicines and how they are harvested and used. Hiking is not very strenuous, but guests should bring suitable shoes.
Approximately 12:30: Forest picnic, river swimming in jade green water
We arrive at the Ka Lone Htar picnic spot, to enjoy either a delicious, home cooked picnic lunch with several dishes / or a simple one-dish pack lunch. There is time to relax, and it is usually possible to swim in the cool, green river. If there have been heavy rains, the local guide may recommend not to swim.
After lunch, there is a 1 hour hike back to Ka Lone Htar village, or guests can continue on for a further 30 minutes to the Barefoot Forest Spa experience
