Report Pam Group:

For our hike on Sunday, June 8th, 2014 most people were coming to our Meeting point with some others waiting at the Starting point. We just wanted to start with our hike when 2 more willing hikers who could not locate the Starting point,  were calling and we waited a couple of minutes for them.  At around 8:30 AM , a total of 21 hikers , 6 in the group of Anders and 15 in the group of Pam, started the hike towards to the observatory.

A Thai man, who was walking in the area where the slower hiking group was passing through, joined our hike for about 45 minutes , but had to turn around because he did not have any drinking water with him. Around 5 minutes before we arrived at the  point of return for our group , one hiking friend from the faster group was waiting for us and joined us , boosting our group up to 16 people. We  started to walk downhill and stopped after 5 to 10 minutes for a 10 minute break.

Afterwards we continued to walk up hill again on a beautiful trail for a 20 minutes and then again downhill, picking up fruits and enjoying the environment.

We arrived back at our morning starting point after 3 hours 40 minutes and went to the restaurant for our lunch, where Anders  and the people walking with him arrived about an hour later.


Report  Anders Group:



Fast group started with 5 hikers, our goal was to keep up with Pams group, a hike about half of ours. Finish at the same time.

Yada choose after one hour to wait for Pam.

The rest of us continued up to the observatory. Due to the heavy rain last days, we had to do a small detour of safety reasons. The observatory was closed, but the security guy had about five dogs who helped him with barking at us. We were now at 850 m. elevation, and had to gain up to 1092, before we turn back home. Up in the mountain a heavy rain started and made our trail to a small river. We choose a safety trail back home, an extra detour. Back at the lake, Pam and friends were gone. But we catch them up later at the restaurant.
