120310_11 Trip Report Khun Tan

On the trail up to Yaw 3 _ photo: Janet

Eight of us met at the Train Station early Saturday morning and found our train cancelled so we used Plan “B” and went down to Khun Tan in two cars. Going to the top vehicle park shortened the hike considerably and we reached our cabin at Yaw 3 in good time for lunch. It was just as well we brought food with us because the NP Restaurant was closed for both days.

After lunch we hiked up to the summit where we met a Thai Blogger busy getting material for his blog. He took this picture with Janet’s camera.

At the summit we had the first rain of the season – a mere sprinkling; but we felt it better to get back to the Cabin.

For Saturday evening Janet and assistants produced a welcome cooked meal and afterwards we roasted potatoes on a log fire. The lights went out at 22:00 hours but most of us were in our beds well before then.

Sunday breakfast was what we had brought with us and some of our party shared with the two or three dogs on whose territory we had intruded. The hike down was pleasant and the forest quite cool though humid.

We drove over to Khun Tan Train station and had lunch in one of the two restaurants there. After lunch some of us watched a couple of trains pass through and also visited the memorial to the German Tunnel Builder/engineer and his wife. There was a nice view of the station from the platform over the tunnel entrance.

I cannot say much about the drive back to Chiang Mai because I slept most of the way.
