20 hikers were meeting at the car park of the Arboretum for our hike on march 30th, 7 of them were joining for the first time. We shared/pooled cars and motorbikes, then driving up to the Doi Suthep car park where we met 1 more hiker . We started our hike at 9:10 am. We walked mainly under the trees for the first 30 minutes before we arrived at the 3-way junction. At that point, 3 hikers decided to walk to Moon Tha Than Waterfall and towards the city, while the rest of us took the other direction uphill to the dirt road. We then walked down the dirt road to the Doi Suthep main road,
which we crossed and turned into the Nature Trail. On the Nature Trail we decided to take a group photograph.
We continued to walk along the Nature trail, then had to follow the main street for around 50 meters, passed by the Doi Suthep Park Headquarters where we stopped for taking pictures of the big beautiful trees.
Then we walked down back to our morning takeoff- place. Fortunately the hike leader had a very dedicated young boy assisting her to lead the group for the whole time . Some of us went back to the city and some had lunch at one of the restaurants at the car park. Total time of the hike was 2 hours 40 minutes.
