140629_Trip Report_Baan Na Huak Circular Hike.

18 people arrived at the 700-Year Stadium for our Sunday hike. We shared cars and motor bikes and left at 7:40 AM to our starting point at Baan Na Huak. At 8:30 AM we started the hike. One of the fellow-hikers gave a M150 Energy drink to the hike leader which had a miraculously accelerating impact on her and the rest of the group had to urge her to slow down a bit. We walked uphill and after around 15 minutes we encountered a local farmer collecting mushrooms. We had a small break for drinking some water and bringing all hikers together again before we continued our hike for another 30 minutes to the top of the mountain where we had a 15 minutes break with some of us collecting mushrooms.After the break we had to walk a bit more uphill before we started to descend.

Just 5 minutes before we arrived at the lake where we planned to have our lunch , the hike leader discovered a pretty big snake resting on the branches of a bamboo tree and observing us  while taking pictures of it.

After this short hold-up , we continued our walk to the lake where we had our lunch at a Sala.  Most people focused on their meals , but one hikers preferred to have a cooling bath in the lake .

After the lunch break we had to walk steep uphill for around 15 minutes , but afterwards we had an easy stroll back to our vehicles. 2 fellow-hikers went home and the rest of us had some drinks at ” the funny local shop” and some noodles from a newly opened restaurant across the street.  Lao Kao was offered for free. Total time of the hike: 4 hours 50 minutes.

  1. Snake identification parade: upon further examination of Pam’s photos the leading suspect is a Keeled Rat Snake (non venomous). These snakes are normally active but the bulge in this snake’s stomach suggests he had recently had a rat brunch and was still digesting the main course; hence its lethargy. Interestingly the Keeled rat snake has very similar markings to the King Cobra and is often mistaken for its more illustrous neighbour-although a meeting of the two would end up in the latter having the former for brunch.
