15/08/30 _ Trip Report _ Mon Cham Loop Hike

“About 28 hikers”

About 28 people turned up for this hike. In keeping with tradition our glorious hike leader managed to lose several cars en route to Mon Cham but all were eventually accounted for. We started the hike down through the fields behind the restaurant. Following a quick inspection of the chalet construction (completion date next month) we continued down, with only one wrong turn, to the bottom of the valley – to be welcomed by a low growling village dog who refused all food enticements from a suspicious looking farang.

After this it was a somewhat steep climb up winding dirt roads and paths and through fields (with a trailing party taking a short cut missed by the hike leader but helpfully pointed out by a villager) towards the summit ridge. About two thirds of the way up the unexpected hot weather and the steepness of the assent took its toll and ten hikers decided to take a cut off road back to the restaurant. A temporary distraction for all hikers was an unusual circular rainbow in the sky and one small (unfortunately dead) snake. The remaining hikers carried on up to the ridge and the now overgrown viewpoint and were rewarded with excellent vistas. The main party then retraced their route back to the restaurant and refreshments to give a total distance travelled of just over nine kilometres in just under four hours.
