130908_The Samueng Circular Hike.


We will meet at the Arboretum car park at 7:00 am for a 7:10 am take-off. We plan to  share/pool cars and motorbikes to our starting point on Samoeng Road , which will be a 30-40 minutes drive. If you are a passenger, please pay THB 100 to your driver.This is an outstandingly beautiful hike with 2 hidden valleys and a spectacular waterfall with a big lagoon for swimming. Bring along your swimming suits if you would like to take a refreshing cooling-off ! We will have several short breaks and a longer one  for around 40 minutes at the waterfall with the lagoon. This is a medium-level hike ( elevation at start point 507 M, highest point 818 M, finish point 396 M) with start-and endpoint being different locations. Please be prepared for a 6 hours hike , but including driving times and potential hold-ups , we recommend to reserve the whole day ! Afterwards we have an option to take snacks, drinks, food … at the Valley Cafe.
