120715 Janet’s Jaunt from 700 Yrs Stadium to HTT and back

Huay Tung Tao

From the 700 Year Stadium to Huay Tung Tao and back.

This is a fairly level hike, from the dam at the 700 Year Stadium across to Huay Tung Tao and back. It is about 8-9 km. rounds trip and should take about 4 hours from start to finish. We will meet at the arboretum at 08:30 so that we can share transport there and back, but any who prefer to meet at the starting point at the 700 Yr. Stadium at 09:00 hours may do so. We will use the path around the left of the reservoir both coming and going. This has a few short ups and downs, but it is shady and easy to find our way. Once at the lake we will eat at a restaurant, and any who would like to swim may do so.

If you want to join

Just turn up at the meeting place on the day.

Meeting Place

This time we will meet before 08:30 hours in the car park of the Huay Kaeow Arboretum (also known as the exercise park).

The Arboretum (otherwise known as Suan Luukachaat Huay Kaeow or Huay Kaeow Excercise park) is out along Huay Kaeow Rd.

  • From the moat driving out along Huay Kaeow Rd you will immediately pass Kad Suan Kaeow shopping mall on the left.
  • Go straight on through the first big intersection Amari Rincombe intersection.
  • Go straight on further past the Phucombe intersection (you will see a dunkin doughnut on the corner).
  • Go past the front entrance to Chiang Mai University.
  • After less than a kilometre you will see a small park on your left. This is the arboretum.
  • We meet at the car park just after the arboretum, well before Chiang Mai Zoo. It is a small car park, at the back there are some food stalls, away from the road. We meet about 10 meters in from the road.
