Hiking at the National Park

On our first year anniversary, my girlfriend and I booked our plane ticket to Mae Sot to hike at the Taksin Maharat National Park. We booked two-way ticket flights for the duration of five days. As we headed to the park, we were stunned by the beauty of the Mae Sot scenery. The mountain was perfect for hiking. The wildlife and nature is practically untouched. The tracks were a bit challenging, but the ticket to this place was definitely worth it.
