An alternate hike to Richard’s 5 hour trip.
Meeting at the Arboretum Car Park just before Chiang Mai Zoo in Huay Keow Road at 8am. A fast pace along a route through CM uni/Wat Fai Hin/Wat Palaat/Wat Doi Suthep covering 6Km and rising 600m ending with three times clockwise round the gold dome for maximum merit. If you aren’t fit, you won’t be able to keep up for the Wat Palaat/Wat Doi Suthep section, as this is a hard uphill climb. Those unsure of their abilities may wish to duck out at Wat Palaat and get a songteow down. Hiking time to Wat Doi Suthep approx 2 hours uphill all the way. Songtew Ride back down 40bht.
