For our hike on Sunday, March 16th , we will meet at the Arboretum car park at 7:30 am , sharing/pooling cars and motorbikes and leaving at 7:40 am. We will drive up to Doi Pui Village from where our hike will start.

We are planning to have 2 groups, one for the faster hikers who are more focused on the physical exercise  and one for the slower hikers who prefer  to take some  more time and enjoy the surrounding nature. The faster group will be lead by Anders . This group will walk to the Buddha Footprint, turn back to Doi Pui mountain and hike up to the peak. After the group has reached the peak , there will be a short refreshment break and then we will walk to the Doi Pui checkpoint , wander along the street for around 200 meters and turn right back to Doi Pui Village . The second group will be lead by Chan . The only difference to the faster group will be that this group will not go to the Buddha Footprint first , but hike directly up to the peak of Doi Pui , all the remaining parts of the hike being the same as for the faster group.

The total time estimated for Group 1 as well as Group 2 is 5 hours. Afterwards we will meet at a restaurant ( which we will agree on before we leave for the 2 hikes in the morning).
