    This is ground orchid known as Goodyera species surprisingly growing very far away from the source of water only one plant noted during my ascending to the mountain ridge.

    I would considered bonus as I saw this plant on the forest floor, based on my observation it's looked like Crytopylos species very pretty flowers.

    Malaxis species is a genus of terrestrial and semiepiphytic orchids again at one point you can see them very dense in certain area unfortunately cant see the flower.

    I was told by my friend at this area we can found a lots of Macodes petola I was so excited initially, while searching most of them gone at certain spots, so sad I almost gave up but after saw this young plant my spirit, my energy my face change.....smile...... and most importantly I can share with you all how they grow in nature really very wet at their base.

    In order to reach Paph barbatum colonies really challenging very hard and tough many brown leeches which always hungry forever, your body always end up with red color due to their activities. I always put my body near to the ground in order to maintain stability as the slope almost about 60 to 70 degree at certain area used a lots of energy but I enjoyed it.
