We start hiking at the Coffee Shop (coffee and biscuits 30 bt) on the road to Ban Khun Chang Khian from where we hike north east along the road towards the village. At the junction we take a track to the left and hike for 2.2 km rising 330 m along the ridge until we reach the Salah near the summit. We will break here for rest and lunch before continuing upwards to the summit where we usually pause for photos.
