“Vang Vieng Trail” Episode 2 – Final Destination

Many have had a chance to discover an unimaginable beauty of a whole different world of nature, and the only thing that could take one to see it clearly would be to actually experience it. Vang Vieng Trail is like a never ending journey. The event is considered to be at an advanced level of difficulty, just like UTKC (Ultra-Trail Koh Chang) and The Moon 100 (Phangan); that makes them the 3 Kings of the Jungle of Teelakow. However, the difficulty of the trail is merely to test your physical and mental strength. Your effort and determination will eventually be rewarded with amazing views of nature along the way — and it is all worth it. All you have to do to enjoy the experience to the fullest, with the least pain possible, is “practice, practice, and practice”.
