Starting at 8:00am at the foot of the pilgrims Trail (top of Suthep Road, turn right and follow the road until it ends at the Channel 7 TV mast gate. (GPS 18.797966,98.942297) (Google Maps http://goo.gl/maps/sHlX2)
Very easy 2Km walk up a pleasant forest path to Wat Palaat, then past the temple and a very challenging 1Km walk, through forest, up to Wat Doi Suthep.
Suitable for everyone, as you don’t have to complete the steep walk and Wat Palaat is very pretty with seating and salas.
Round trip 6Km, taking at most a total of 3 hours, back before mid-day.
