Sunday hike 28 September.
(As we will have a longer hike and share cars together, please bring a towel and a second shirt with you). If you are a passenger, please contribute 100 Baht for gasoline.
First of all, this is a full day hike, about 7 hours with an early morning gathering. It is very important that you bring extra water and snacks and lunch. In some area we will be exposed to the sun, so use sunblock and hat. If you have hiking sticks, use them. Use good footwear. Good idea is to bring sandals for the river crossings.
The hike will include river crossing (jumping and balancing on small bridges), some steep uphill and steep downhill. (But the trails are safety with clear steps). It is a long hike but you cannot say hard. The trails are very good.
If you feel you can manage this, the hike will offer us:
A varied hike with a lot of rushing streams and powerful waterfalls with options for swim and cool down. We will have spectacular views over Mae Taeng valley. The hike will also include a visit to two remote mountain villages. We will make many stops to enjoy the highlights of this hike.
Brief hike description:
We will hike up from Mae Taeng river ( elevation 478 m) on a trail along a stream in a narrow valley,up to the first village (elevation 1022 m). From here we will hike on a small dirt road to the next village (elevation 904 m). The rest of the hike will follow a river with waterfalls, down back to Mae Taeng river.
After the hike we will relax at a small restaurant at the endpoint.
Hike leaders: Anders & Mike
If you want to join
Just turn up at the meeting place on the day and on time.
We cannot accommodate groups.
There is no need to let us know you are coming.
This time we will meet at 07:00 Am for an 07:10 hours start at the car park in front of the 700 years Stadium ( please see the map).
We will share/pool cars and motorbikes and will drive to our starting point. The estimated driving time will be around 1 hour. Start point and end point are not the same. So we have to arrange with the cars.
Head straight out from the North West corner of the moat 2 km towards Doi Suthep on Huay Kaew Road (H.1004).
Turn right onto the Canal Road H.121
After 4.5 km you will see the traffic lights (don’t go into the Stadium area.)
When you are at traffic lights of 700 years stadium you will see the big parking area on canal road in front of 700 years stadium there we will meet.
