140302_ Adventure Hike at Op Khan National Park

The magic mountain river

The magic mountain river

We will hike up north in a beautiful and shady valley,along a  small river named Nam Mae Khanin in Op Khan National Park. Crystal clear cold water from the mountains.
But this Sunday hike, however, is a bit special …
The hike can be classified as easy . Only for 30 minutes, it is steep.. For the most part it is a hike along the narrow river valley. Hiking time including breaks and lunch is 4 hours and 30 minutes, up to 5 hours, depending on the group.
The little specialty that makes this as an adventure hike is that we will cross the river numerous times and for one hour we will more or less hike in the stream.
But do not worry, the river is wide  and the water level is about 10 centimeters. Soft and sandy ground to walk on and delightfully cool mountain water.
In order to be able to get the full benefits of this hike, it is very important that you have two pairs of shoes with you. A couple for the river wading and a couple for the regular hiking.
You can say that this hike is a bit of magic,,,,
Option after the hike:
Nice lunch at the spectacular Canyon Restaurant…must to be seen…

  1. Where in Ob Khan will the actual hike start? Will you be heading into the Park? I go there often by bike and if you’ll be meeting at the car parking area, I’d like to meet you there. Thanks! Kurt 081-638-1836

  2. Hi Kurt!
    Hike start is not at the official entrance of the park. 2 km before the park entrance it is a junction. The main road cross the bridge to the left, towards the park entrance. Instead you shall continue straight on at a small road for about 4 km to a village. The road ends here , and here we start the hike
    GPS position: N18 45.039 ,E98 49.612

    • thanks, I’ll see you up that road, I’ve not been 4km up before! I’ll plan on being there by 0800.
