This is an easier, alternative hike for this Sunday. We will meet at the Arboretum at 7:50am, car pooling or going by songtao to Ban Doi Pui where our hike begins from the lovely garden there. This is an easy hike along shady trails with a beautiful view from the rocks on the ridge of Doi Pa Kha where we will spend some time enjoying a snack before returning to Baan Doi Pui via Buddha footprint. Lunch will be in the village. Afterwards we return to the Arboretum. We should be back by 1 or 1:30.
