( As we will have a longer hike and share cars together, please bring a towel and a second shirt with you).
For our hike this Sunday, we will meet at a big open area 50 meters past the PTT Station on Canal Road ( please see map below). Meeting time will be at 07:20 am and estimated driving time to our starting point will be around 1 hour.
This hike will be a rather difficult hike for people with a better physical condition. Quite many steep up-and downhill climbs, but beautiful views and gorgeous surroundings. Some parts of the hike will lead us along a water stream and the area is packed with bamboo trees. Total estimated hiking time will be 5.5 to 6 hours depending on the group. Around an hour before the end of the hike , we will come to a big beautiful rice-and corn farm and shortly afterwards to a village where a farang and his Thai wife are selling burgers ( 25-30 Baht for the burger plus 10 Baht for cheese). They also offer all kinds of drinks. After the Burger shop we will have to walk around 200 meters to our vehicles. Please consider to bring along/wear:
1. Good water-resistant shoes ( or be prepared to get wet …)
2. Long sleeves and long pants ( bamboo trees and Mimosa pudica plants)
3. Umbrella or sunhat in case you are sensitive to sun ( open farm area, no trees)
