141012_Trip Report_Ant hill and water spirits mountain

Report Mike Group: After dropping the ants off at Wat Pang An, the six members of the water spirits group drove a further eight kms to Ban Khun Lao, over the next ridge, and started walking just after 9am, with five of us completing the 3 kms, 650m climb to the peak of Doi Mot in about 1 hour 30 minutes, scaring at least one monkey out of its tree as soon as we left the orchard area. After continuing on up to the cloud forest of Doi Phi Pannam, a further 2 kms, and 250 vertical metres up, in a further hour, the group of water spirits magically transformed into cheeky monkeys and braved the almost-vertical descent of the rickety fence and then along the sharp ridge to the final peak where we enjoyed the lunch that Pam had kindly provided for us. MtnPicnicMike1_resize MtnPicnicMike2_resize MtnPicnicMike3_resize After lunch it was just a simple slide down the steep trail back to the village, where we arrived just 10 minutes after the ants. Good timing! 5 hrs 30 minutes, 10 kms, up/down around 1,000m in total. If you were wondering what happened to the sixth hiker, Superman ran round the whole of our loop, added at least two long exploratory detours to check other ridge trails, and did at least 15 kms in total, with much more climbing than the group. IMG_0130_resize Report Pam Group: The 22 hikers of the  unhurried group started to walk slowly uphill from Wat Pang An at around 8:50 AM. After about half an hour we were coming to an area where we stopped for a short break. IMG_4958_resize IMG_0139_resize IMG_5018_resize After the break we had to climb up a pretty steep section for around 1 hour 30 minutes followed by a 10 minutes snack break. We continued to ascend to the top of Doi Mot (Ant Mountain)where after a total hiking time of around 3 hours we had a lunch break for a bit more than half an hour. IMG_5035_resize Following the lunch , we had to walk downhill quite steeply until we arrived at a Coffee Farm. From the Coffee Farm we had a pleasant walk on pretty flat terrain to the village where we were coming together with Mike’s group and enjoyed together some drinks at a local shop. Weather was fine although warmer than on the day of our exploration hike . Total hiking time 5 hours 30 minutes .
