130825 _Doi Pui Special Circular Hike.


For our hike this Sunday we will meet at the Arboretum car park at  7:50 am for a 8:00 am start. We will share/pool cars and motorbikes to go  up to Doi Pui Village . In case many people show up and we do not have enough place with cars/motorbikes, we will take a Songtao (THB 160 per person for both ways and 10 THB for the entrance fee to doi poi garden).

The hike will start at the lower parking area  of Doi Pui Village. First we will walk on a  very easy trail towards the junction of  Buddha Foot Print, which will  take around 40 min. Afterwards we will have a relatively  easy uphill walk for around 30 min followed by a short break at a small Sala at the start of the south-east ridge. Then we will hike downhill for around 1 hour 10 minutes .  At the end of the ridge  we will take another short break and take a twisting trail towards the dirt road that leads back up to Doi Pui Village. This will take around 2 hours.

Estimated time for the hike around 4.5 hours followed by lunch at a restaurant in the village. Back in town probably 3 PM.

(In case if is raining heavily on Sunday morning, I might be changing the meeting time-please check on Sunday morning for any updates in the webpage)

  1. At this time of year there will be many leeches. Best to use a good repellent on feet and all clothing joints, include neck as they drop from above.

    • Hi , thanks for the advice. I did the hike Yesterday, an fortunately it was no leeches. But good advice . I noticed full undervegitation after the burning period, so full cower clothing is a good idea.
      I hope you join tomorrow,,,a extra specia lhike….
