130127 _Hike to Hidden Waterfall

Hidden Waterfall

Hidden Waterfall

This is a moderate hike for fit hikers. The starting point is Wat Pratat Doi Suthep and the finishing point is the arboretum. We will organize transport with song tao to the temple. From there we walk up to the 5 way junction where we will stop for a short break before continuing on down to a lychee orchard and a side trail to the “hidden waterfall”. Depending on the hour and whether hikers are hungry, we may take a longer break to eat our pack lunches under the lychee trees. At the far end of the orchard, a trail takes us down to a stream which hopefully still has a large log across it for crossing. We then follow a narrow trail through the forest which leads to the main trail back down to the Doi Suthep road, where we cross it to Wang Bua Baan. If we haven’t eaten yet, this is a lovely spot to do so. From here we continue on down along side Huay Gaew and back to the arboretum. I would estimate 5 hours to complete the hike at a moderate pace.
