The Trail to Humalophop
It took us 4 hours to reach Humalophop or approximately 3 hours if with less stopovers, what the locals can do in just 1 and a half hours. We started our descent at Mompolia, then at the bottom was a small river that serves as a boundary between two mountains, before we started to climb uphill. Everything was going up, and the only leveled ground we walked over was at the edge of the rice terraces... an opportunity that not everyone is able to experience in a lifetime.
We reached Humalophop at dusk exactly when darkness fell upon us. The paths were narrow and steep, but the scenery and the thrill are memories worth to keep.
