Here is another high level hike done on shady trails. We will meet at the arboretum at 7:50 for an 8am start. We will take a song tao up to the Khun Chang Khian check point/barrier, walk along the road to the coffee shop, where we will have a short break before walking through the Hmong village and down to the 5 way junction, where we will eat our pack lunches. We will continue on to the temple and return to the arboretum by song tao. This is an easy to moderate hike and should take about 5 hrs., including our coffee and lunch breaks. You will need plenty of water, a pack lunch, and approximately 150 baht for song tao and 30 baht for coffee.
