ACTIVE IN RIEPE
RIEPE - PERFECT FOR YOGA; whether individually or small groups. We even have a dedicated yoga pavilion 100 metres away from the village.
Beyond the terraced fields of paddy the forest climbs up the hillside; it is very atmospheric and best visited in a small group out of respect for bear, wild boar and leopard although you are more likely to encounter timid deer.
For a longer leg-stretch and for views that rival Riepe's we can take a village guide and hike west along the trail that leads to the next small settlement. There are but a few ageing inhabitants and yet they have what one walker described as a certain dignity in despair. There is an equally interesting way home by an alternative route.
