13 people arrived at our meeting point on Sunday morning and we were leaving on time. Surprisingly there was only little smog and it was pleasantly windy. After about 50 minutes we got to Wat Palaad where we stopped for a short break and discussed whether we should walk back down or continue to hike up the Pilgrim Trail to Doi Suthep Temple . We decided to continue the hike , but we climbed our way up slowly and casually. When we arrived at the temple , we were taking another break for refreshments, walked then down the stairs and hired a Songtao to bring us down to Wat Palaad. Once at Wat Palaad, we continued to walk down to our morning meeting point. Some of us went home and others had lunch together. Total time of the hike 4.5 hours.
