16/04/03_Trip report_Wat Prabhat Si Roi loop

P1110596

18 hikers turned up at the meeting point and car-shared or motorcycled out to their own interpretations of the trailhead, at various speeds, finally coming together again in time to start hiking as a group just before 9am.

P1110598

The main group of 15 surged ahead on the initial steep uphill but the three canny back-markers took a sneaky shortcut (after a brief unplanned detour and some minor forest fire-fighting) so waited nonchalantly half way down the steep descent after the highest peak for the long-cutters to ‘catch up’.

P1110600

At this higher, cooler elevation, with gentle breezes, almost all the group decided to continue on the longer (walking-not-snoozing) option, although one (alleged) ‘morning-after’ hiker and two ‘couldn’t-wait-for-lunch’ hikers opted out of this addition.

P1110604

Lunch was taken near the end point of the high ridge, after which we made good speed back to the loop and then down to the temple carpark. Mike hiked 10.2 kms, up/down 583m in 4 hrs 33 mins. Most did a little more; a few a little less.

P1110602

We missed a few regular hikers, but welcomed back a few returners and a newbie cyclist-turned-hiker. Hope to see you all again. Any more photos or events to add?

I didn’t go here on the way home; I don’t drink tea.

  1. I think this is an record for post a report. The ink from our GPS devices have even not dried. Good job Mike!

  2. I can’t find how to click on “Upcoming Hikes”. Want to join some hikes but don’t know how? It seems all the hike reports are posted after the hike…

    Rgrds,

    • Hi Khuned, each Sunday’s hike will be advertised around Weds or Thurs usually. It will appear on the main page, as well as on the upcoming hikes page, which is currently blank.

      • K, thanks, Mike. Will give it a try closer to weekends. Cheers.
