15 hikers arrived on Sunday morning at the Arboretum Car Park to escape the pollution in the city for some hours. We left on time , shared cars and motorbikes and went up to Doi Suthep Car park. We started our hike at 8:10 AM amid cool and fresh temperatures and better air quality compared to Chiang Mai City.
For the first half an hour we walked slowly on mostly plain terrain until we arrived at the Big Buddha Tree where we stopped for a group picture.
We then walked another 10 minutes before we had a short break for refreshments and started then to climb uphill towards Buphin Palace where we arrived at 11:10 AM.
We had our lunch at a restaurant around the Parking Area of Buphin Palace .
After around an hour at the restaurant, we went to the view point of Bhupin Palace which unfortunately did not offer any view that day.
We then started to walk downhill back to Doi Suthep, where we had some cool drinks and refreshments before we were going back down to the Arboretum Car Park. Thanks to all of you for joining our hike !
