It was the muddiest day of my life in the wilderness. We walked almost 6 hours and only covered 8km. The trail was fresh which mean our guides and trackers had to create a path with a machete. The path was narrow, muddy and somewhat steep. I must say that the trek today was certainly a challenge. The highest point we reached was 2,800m and the total ascent was only 200m. Yes the altitude hit me. I found it hard to breathe at times.
Once we arrived at the stop point, where we geared up with nothing but cameras, we marched off deeper into the open where members of the Amahoro group were spending their morning. They were deep in very thick and tall bushes of stinging nettle. After a period of bright and harsh sunlight, the rain came. I loved this so much as you can see how beautiful they are under the rain.
