A great trip that includes a nice balance of activities and culture. Pack light as a couple of options for laundry but include a sleeping bag liner for homestay and overnight train, good hiking shoes and padded shorts for cycling. Good level of fitness is required as heat during hiking and kayaking can be tough. Extra excursion to Elephant Sanctuary was a highlight.
