Our hike on Sunday will be easy to moderate with manageable up-and downhill sections except for the first hour which will be a continuous uphill climb and is more challenging than the rest of the hike . After 7 to 8 km, we will arrive at the Elephant Village which is close to the Elephant Farm and have lunch at one of the local restaurants.
After the lunch break , we will have to walk around 500 meters along Mae Sa Road before we will turn back to the Nature trail which will lead us back to our Starting Point.
Total estimated time of the hike including lunch ( depending on the group) : About 6 hours
Hike Leader: Peter G
