17 hikers set off from Chiang Mai at the more civilized time of 07.00, one hour after the summiteers. Youngest was 6 years old, oldest a bit more. Arrived at trailhead at 09.00 & began the hike to the stupa above Ban Khun Wang village soon after.
After 3 hours we reached our lunch spot on the ridge below the stupa.
About half the hikers made the extra 100 m ascent to the stupa on top of the cliffs.
While the rest relaxed & enjoyed the view, before heading back down, retracing the route we took earlier.
Total hike length was 12.9 km, climbing 965m in about 6 hours for those that went all the way to the stupa. About 1 km & 100 m less for the rest.
Thanks to hike leaders Deuan, Andrew & Anders
