15/08/16_Baan Khun Chang Khian Circular Hike

DSC01697 view

(In case if is raining heavily on Sunday morning, I might be changing the meeting time-please check on Sunday morning for any updates in the webpage)

As we will have to 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 meet at the Arboretum at 7:45 for an 8am departure, and drive up to the village, which takes about 1 hour. After a quick coffee there we will begin walking. The circular hike is a variation on one we have done before, shady and with moderate up and down hills, bringing us back to the village in about 3-31/2 hours. We will then drive back down to the parking lot at Wat Prathat Doi Suthep for lunch. The plan is to be finished and back at the arboretum by 2pm as there is a very large biking event starting at the Convention Center at 3pm which will probably cause heavier than usual traffic on Huay Kaew. Remember to bring drinking water, good shoes, rain-gear, a snack, and 100 baht for your driver.

Hike leader: Janet

  1. We are staying in the Nimman area for a few weeks, and are interested in doing some hikes. Is there anyone able to rideshare to/from the start point for the Baan Khun Chang Khian Circular Hike?

  2. Just come to the Meeting point which is not far away from Nimman. Walk over to Huay Kaew Road and take a regular taxi direction to CMU. The Arboretum Car Park is between the main entrance to CMU and the Chinag Mai zoo. Pam
