The second day of trekking is much more challenging than the first but much shorter. The paths are narrow and after run become very slippery. It really pays to have a bamboo stick which can give you some leverage. The ground is made of slippery clay so if you fall over it's you're pride that is hurt more than your posterior. A skilled guide can take you through this terrain without too many problems. We walked for 5km on the second day which meant we caught a taxi back to Sapa after lunch.
