15/02/08_Adventure Hike at Op Khan National Park

IMG_0028_resize

As we will have a longer hike and share cars together, please bring a towel and a second shirt with you. In case you are a passenger, please contribute to the costs of gasoline with THB 100 per person.

We will hike up North in a beautiful valley,along a  small river named Nam Mae Khanin in Op Khan National Park. Crystal clear cold water from the mountains, but probably not too much because of the season.  The hike can be classified as easy . We will have some steep sections, but not more than for around 30 minutes in total.  For the most part it is a hike along the narrow river valley. Hiking time including breaks and lunch is 4 hours and 30 minutes, up to 5 hours, depending on the group. The little specialty that makes this  an adventure hike is that we will cross the river numerous times and for one hour we will  hike in the stream. But please do not worry, the river is wide  and the water level is about 10 centimeters or less only. Soft and sandy ground to walk on and delightfully cool mountain water. In order to be able to get the full benefits of this hike, it is very important that you bring two pairs of shoes with you. A couple for the river wading and a couple for the regular hiking. You can say that this hike is a bit magic ……. Option after the hike: Nice lunch at the spectacular Canyon Restaurant…must to be seen…

  1. Pam/Anders,

    Is the start point straight-on after the small bridge to Ob-Khan park, somewhere about here: 18.743706, 98.826681 ??? Haven’t decided yet but may meet you there. What’s with Anders, I thought he was in “dirty-air lung-conservation” mode?
