16/09/11 Huay Jo Rocky Mountain Hike

IMG_7734

0626 – The hike is still on; there is an option to do a shorter loop and a vote will be taken by those who turn up. 

As usual at this time of year, if there is heavy rain the hike might be cancelled. If it is going to be cancelled, we will post a warning here by 06:30 on Sunday morning.

This is a nice forest hike and was last tackled by the group a year ago; we checked it out last week and it is still there and, for the most part, in good condition.  The trails are generally good and wide but quite rocky so good footwear is a must and a pole helpful.  There are a few short steep sections but most of the hike is over reasonable terrain (total ascent about 700mtrs) and at about the half-way point there are some lovely views to be had, weather permitting.

This is a moderate hike due to its length, 17km, so a reasonable level of fitness is required and it is expected to take 6-7 hours.  It is recommended that you bring at least 2.5 litres of water/fluid per person

Hike Leaders: Peter and Richard

If you want to join, make sure you have read the general advice on this website as well as the particular details in this post. If you still think the hike is for you, then just turn up at the meeting place on the day and on time. No need to inform us you are coming. We cannot accommodate groups. Places are usually available for passengers in cars although it cannot be guaranteed. If you are a passenger, please give your driver 100Bht as a contribution for fuel.

Meeting Place:

We will meet at 0730 at Meechok Plaza (see map) and leave at 0740 sharp.

  1. Hi, I’ll be in Chiang Mai early on October and I’d like to do hiking. I’m from France and I’ve been living in NZ for a year. I’m fit and not afraid by steep path 😉 Would it be possible to join you ?

    • Hi Flore, you are most welcome to join. Just follow the instructions for the hike and turn up at the meeting place and make sure you check the site before you leave in case the hike has been cancelled due to the weather.
