131208_ Three Junction-Chang Kian Waterfall Circular Hike.

IMG031

This Sunday’s hike will have a severity of  medium to difficult. We will meet on December 8th, 2013 at 7:30 am at the Arboretum car park ( see map below) and will leave on time at 7:40 am with cars/motorbikes ( sharing/pooling) to Wang Bua  Ban Waterfall. Probably not more than a 10 -15 minutes drive. From our starting point, we will walk slowly uphill – with some rather steep sections – for 2.5 to 3 hours. Before we start walking down to a beautiful Farm area, we will have a short break.

After we will have arrived at the Farm area, we will take our lunch. After lunch, our hike will continue to be a downhill descent for around 2 hours until we will arrive at Chang Kian Waterfall . Once we will get to Chang Kian Waterfall, we will have another short break followed by a 20 minutes-uphill walk and a short downhill promenade back to our matutinal starting point. Total estimated duration of the hike : Around 6 hours

Hike Leader: Pam & Anders
