16/04/10 Ban Pha Nok Kok loop

This Sunday’s hike offers a bit of a change of scenery from the last few weeks.  We will be hiking mainly along farmers trails through agricultural land with some lovely views, seasonal conditions permitting.  The hike is at a relatively high altitude, starting at 1000m rising to about 1400m (a total altitude gain of around 700m) and a total distance of about 11km.  Although there is a fair amount of shade hats and sunblock are a must and do consider additional fluids too.

It should be noted that our post-hike watering hole does not serve rice or noodle dishes, only snacks so, if you want anything more substantial you will have to bring it along.

Hike leaders: Anders & PGB

If you want to join, be sure you have read the general advice on this website, as well as this particular post. If you still think the hike is for you then just turn up at the meeting place on the day and on time.

We cannot accommodate groups.  Seats in cars cannot be guaranteed.

Meeting Place
We will meet at 07.15 am for an 07.30 start, in front of the 700-year stadium (see map), just beside the 121 irrigation canal road (not inside the stadium), then carpool to the hike start point.

  • 100Bht for your driver if sharing their car.
  • sunhat, sunblock, rain protection.
  • energy, enthusiasm, and good humour.
  • spare fresh T-shirt, frock or tux you can change into at the end, especially if you are going to be traveling home with others in a car.

  1. Hi Peter,
    Apologies if this is a silly question..
    How far is it from 700 Pi stadium to Baan Pha nok? I would like to ride my bike.

  2. Hi Guys,

    Same question as above. I may be able to join if the hike is not too far from town and I can get back at a reasonable time. How far from town and approximate duration of hike?

    • Hi Richard,

      As per reply to Jack, about 30km out of town and the hike time 5-6hrs (but this is dependent on the group, breaks, etc.).Post-hike refreshments about an hour so, if you don’t have your own transport, allow 9hrs.

      Hope to see you on Sunday

      Peter

  3. Hi all,, it is an 40 minutes drive from the meeting point to the trail head.
