WILD

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
Cat Tien National Park is a fascinating place to visit. In early March, the weather was fine except for the tropical storm around 4.pm. It lasted two hours and it was a real tropical downpour. Afterwards there was a lovely earthy damp smell in the air. And the birds were making a racket. Absolutely incredible.

I wanted to visit some other National Park further North in the Central Highlands but it was too foggy and wet. Another reason for choosing this National Park was the possibility to see orchids but I discovered I should have come in January.

Luckily the idea of walking a few kilometres in the jungle to catch a glimpse of some crocodiles was very enticing. Here are a few photos taken during the first part of the walk. Hoping youíll enjoy some of the flowers and trees.

Thank you for your comments on the first up-load about Cat Tien yesterday.

Have a nice evening,
