It's so hot and humid that just standing up makes one start to sweat. Hiking for kilometers up steep hills using trees and plants for handholds while trying not to trip on the roots or slip on the leaves makes one sweat a lot.

Ratton is common. Its whip-like, needle encrusted stems cross the path ready to catch your clothes and shred your skin. The hike was much harder and more dangerous than I expected. At the end of the first day I was pleasantly exhausted.
