How it works:
- While descending to the waterfalls, touts will offer to bring you through a shortcut.
- It’s faster by a bit but not recommended as it’s a steep muddy path through the jungle with tons of mosquitos, plus an inflated “guide fee” will be demanded.
Places to beware:
- Mandalay: Anisakan Falls
What to do:
- Decline, it is a straightforward hike as it is one straight road.
- If you do engage a guide, decide on a fee first, even if he claims you can pay what you wish.
