121028_Wang Bua Ban to Mahidol

Mahidol Falls

This is a medium-strength hike of only around 7-8 kms roundtrip, but with over 500m of often quite steep altitude gain and then the same descent. A reasonable level of fitness and agility is required. We will take it at a moderate pace, probably taking around 4 hours in total, including snack break.

Please see hike leader’s comment at the end.

We will :

  • leave from Wang Bua Ban at 08:00 and hike quite steeply up for 2 hours
  • scramble down a very short, but very steep, incline to the waterfall.
  • have a snack and return the same way (or option via Chang Khian waterfall?)

  1. I should add that there are a couple of places with a very narrow path with steep drop on one side, and also one big drop with a couple of planks of rotting wood to cross it. Bring your sense of balance with you. 🙂 Mike
