At the summit

At the summit


Ten of us joined this hike and we set off in one song taew for the journey uphill away from the heat of Chiang Mai to the cool of the coffee shop at about 1,300 metres. After coffee we hiked along a pathway and the road to the entrance of the village of Ban Khun Chang Khian where we took a left turn and began the serious task of ascending the ridge over 2.2 km rising 330 m until we reached the Salah where we enjoyed lunch and chatter. We were lucky with the weather – the hike was mostly in the shade, the air was cool and clear, the views were spectacular and we could look down into the valleys on either side and see the hills in the distance and forest and agriculture nearby.

After lunch break we hiked to last few metres up to the summit not far short of 1,700 metres.

We descended along the narrow forest pathway, met up with the track leading to the barrier and thence along the road for almost a half kilometre. Then we turned right into another narrow forest pathway to an area where there were signs of much construction activity. We came to temple buildings and passed through their well manicured garden before descending along the 200 or so steps to reach the village having dropped about 425 metres since the summit.

We had hiked for 4h 30m over 8.2 km and all of us thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you all for being a lovely group and my special appreciation to Janet for arranging transport, John for collecting the transport money and Richard for taking on the role of back marker and ensuring I didn’t get left behind.
