At Ban Ruammit, riding the elephants up the mountain to a remote Lahu village where we spent the night.
As we rode up the mountain at one point I could look to my left and see a sheer drop of the mountain only 3 feet away. We were sitting atop an elephant about 12 feel up in the air and it was a wobbly ride. It was best to look straight ahead. I even got to drive while the mahout walked in front and lead the elephant. Exhilarating experience.
