This will be a circular hike starting from Ban Doi Pui, through part of the village, up several steps and then on a forest trail to the road. After a short walk up the road we pass the barrier and continue up hill on the service track to the top. From there we can take an excursion to the summit and then have rest and lunch at the Princess’s Salah. We will descend down the NW face and turn rigth along a fairly level trail until we reach the garden area of Baan Doi Pui.There are three sections to this hike: 1. We start at an elevation of 1,275m in Baan Doi Pui and hike 3.66 km uphill rising 374 metres to reach the summit of Doi Pui. 2. From the summit we descend 368 metres over 1.71 km – rather steep. 3. At the base of Doi Pui we are at an elevation of 1,324m and from here we hike gently for 3.07 km to reach Baan Doi Pui at an elevation of 1,275m.
