A small group of 5 hikers returned back by car, down to the first campsite near The National Park Head Quarter. A nice trail start here and leads up to a waterfall named Tameuy. The trail is in very good condition and very easy to hike.
We walked along the hillside which gave us fantastic views down to a valley in the north.
After 3 km we reached the waterfall. Now full of water.There is many levels, and convenient for hikers there is safe ladders down to each waterfall level.
Now we had two options:
Follow the official trail up to the big trail that leads to Doi Khun Tan, or try to find the “secret trail” up to the Sala before the summit of Doi Khun Tan. I have hiked on this trail before in the dry season, but now I was afraid it would be overgrown and difficult to find.
Everything went on smoothly until we reached a dry river bed. We lost our trail and had to fight up in a very steep section with slippery soil and high grass. But no sad faces!!!
After 250 m of jungle fight, we happily found our trail again. From here it was an easy hike up to the Sala.
We rested a bit here and soon the first hikers of the main group joined us. Together we walked up to the summit.
After the usual photo session we walked back down to the cabins, where Pam already prepared our dinner.
The next day we joined the big group and walked back together to the cars. I had to do an extra hike, and pick up my car at the campsite.
