121125_Dtat Moork falls

A more challenging hike is offered by Mike B.on this date

This easier hike is offered by Pam and Janet to the beautiful waterfall at Huay Tung Tao. It is a relatively short hike, taking about 3 hrs. including a snack break at the waterfall. We will walk from the big Buddah, turning off the road heading up toward the falls a short way along. Our route will be a clockwise one with one steep and exposed area, which it will be good to do before the day becomes too warm. From there on the trail will be a shaded forest path which will follow the stream up to the falls. After a snack break we will retrace our steps for about 500 meters and then take a different trail back, coming out at the 2nd check point and then walking out to the road around the reservoir. By then it should be lunch time, so we will head back to the meeting point and eat at a nearby restaurant.

If you want to join

Just turn up at the meeting place on the day. There is no need to let us know you are coming.

Please note we do not cater for groups.

  1. Hi
    New to Chiang Mai and would like to join Pam and Janet’s walk on Sunday.
    We lack transport and wonder if anyone is able to offer the two of us a lift to the starting point.
    A pick up on Huay Kaeow Road ,anywhere to suit, perhaps between the shell station and the Pub (just past the superhighway junction) would be much appreciated.

  2. We are also a couple newly arrived in Chiang Mai and we would like to join for the next Sunday hike with Pam and Janet. We also lack transportation, so if somebody is kind enough to take us with them it would be much appreciated! We are at the “V” residence. Our phone # is: 0808539104.
    We could also meet at a precise place easy for you to pick us up!
    Tanks in advance.

    • Hi Louise,
      Happy to share a sangthaew. Our phone number is 0817849705. Should we wait until Saturday to see if anyone else wants to share a songthaew to the start? We are on Huay Kaew Road town side of the Super Highway. If we are the ones to get the sangthaew I think we can get our hotel to write the destination down in Thai and that we are picking up others on the way. If others live nearer town and want to do the hiring we are happy to be picked up at Hillside 4. Is 7.30 am about the right time to set off?

  3. Hi Yolan,
    Just to confirm we will be outside Hillside 4 on Huay Kaew Road at 8am on Sunday morning waiting for the sangthaew. Angela.

  4. Hi Louise and Adrien and Angela

    Wiil collect Angela at Hillside 4
