Sunday 05 October.   Hike in San Kamphaeng “ Lake district”

Hike leader will be Andrew, assisted by sons Alexander & Peter.

It is very important to stay together on this hike.  There are many trails used by villagers gathering from the forest.  Also many cow trails on very steep, densely vegetated slopes.  It is very easy to get lost & follow the wrong trail into a steep sided ravine.  Anyone heading off on their own ahead of hike leader may have a long day ahead of them.

Paths on this hike are narrow & rocky.  In places there are steep drop offs.  In places we may lose the trail & hike across rocky forest floor until we find the trail again.  Good footwear  is a must.   If you have trekking sticks, bring them.
We will meet outside The Promenada Shopping Mall, 07.50 Am, for departure at 08.00 to the Huay Lan Reservoirs in San Kamphaeng district. We carpool for a ride of about 30 minutes. We will park our vehicles next to the dam of southernmost reservoir.   From here we will hike along Huay Lan stream for about 2km, before climbing steeply through bamboo forest.  After climbing about 120m in about 600m, the climb through forest to the sandstone outcrop on the ridge line will be more gradual.  Elevation of viewpoint about 720m.  Spectacular views west to the cliffs of Doi Ton & south to Doi Mae Thi.  After a break for snacks we will continue north about 3km towards Doi Pa Tueng where we will descend through forest to the middle reservoir.  A vehicle left here before the start of the hike will be used to transport drivers back to their cars.

Total time is about 5 hours.  Hike length about 10km.

  1. After the hike it is an option for lunch and drinks at the resort in the area (Baanpong Lodge)

  2. ANYONE HEADING OFF ON THEIR OWN AHEAD OF HIKE LEADER MAY HAVE A LONG DAY AHEAD OF THEM

    “I assume he was talking about some other candidate, not me.” JF Kennedy’s response after Lyndon Johnson criticised him in a speech but did not refer to him by name.

    • A couple of Fleetwood Mac lyrics come to mind. “Don’t stop” and “You can go your own way….”. By the way “he” has a name😉
