140608 Wat pong noi to Observatorium

IMG_0030_resize For this Sunday’s hike we will meet on Canal Road ( Meeting time- and place please see below), share/pool motorbikes and cars and drive together to our Starting point. The Starting point will be at a small lake behind Wat Pong Noi. We will have two groups, one being led by Anders for people who like to have a fast and more ambitious hike and one led by Pam for those of you who prefer a more relaxed hike with time to look at plants, trees and insects. Both hikes will start at the same time and at the same place and both of them will have an estimated duration of around 3.5 to 4 hours and finish at the same place. We will walk up from the area behind Wat Pong Noi on a beautiful trail towards the Observatory. The group hiking with Anders will go up to the observatory while the group hiking with Pam will take a turn to the left before arriving at the observatory and start to walk back to the Starting point. Both hikes are circular hikes.And after the hike we will have our lunch at Hello Solao restaurant,  See you on Sunday morning.

  1. Pam, since I live closer to Wat Pong Noi, can you tell me where the start point will be? I’m guessing I know where it is, but want to be sure. Is it here? 18.772836,98.9413485

  2. Hi Kurt , here is the position for the start point at the lake:
    N18° 46.456′ E98° 56.523′

  3. Do you think an in-shape 8 year old would fit in and be welcome with the ‘relaxed’ hiking group? Thanks!

    • Hi Andrew,

      The hike is a little up hill but I think for 8 year old can do it very easy,

    • I regularly take my boys on the hikes. Aged 5 & 10. They enjoy them, though the younger one has a good moan on the ascents. This hike sounds well within the capabilities of an 8 year old.
