17 people were coming to our meeting point for this hike for sharing/pooling cars and motorbikes and driving to Huay Tung Tao. We parked our vehicles at the end of the lake near a rice field and started at around 8:00 AM to walk to the HTT checkpoint and from there towards Baan Maenai Village.
This was an easy circle hike with soft ups and downs and after around 2.5 hours we were back at the checkpoint before we started with our second circle to Dtaat Mook Waterfall. We slowly walked along the water stream and reached the waterfall after about one hour. We had a break for around 10-15 minutes at the Waterfall.
Afterwards we walked about 100 meter back on the same trail which was taking us to the waterfall before , turned to the right and crossed the water stream . Our hike was then taking us uphill towards the 3-way junction.
Coming down the mountain we arrived at an ATV trail and instead taking the trail which leads to the Golden Buddha, we were taking a trail which assumingly should have led us in the direction to the area where we parked our vehicles , but this assumption turned out to be wrong. We arrived at a fence and crawled under the fence into a ” private” area. To get out to the street, 2 of us crawled again underneath a second fence before we discovered that the gate was actually not locked and the rest of the group used this more comfortable way to get to the street. Total time of the hike was 5 hours 15 minutes and most of us went to one of the HTT restaurants for meals and drinks .
