16/10/09_Trip report_Thepsadet waterfall (almost) loop

Approximately 26 hikers met up near CenFes and set off in 10 vehicles (including one hikebike) towards the trailhead. Unfortunately we seem to have somehow lost one vehicle on the way (sorry Rex and party!) and one leader couldn’t make it today, so only 22 hikers walked the pre-hike waterfall side-trip, led by Medi. By the time we returned to the carpark to start the hike proper, we had been joined by a 23rd, biker-hiker.


There was plenty of water in the falls and rivers:


Ms J took over front leadership duties from the absent, podiatrically-challenged, Mr P.  Mr M looked after the other end of the crocodile, which had quite a gap in the middle at times.


Lots of mushrooms around at the moment. Some quite big:


Good views SE over Ban Pok Pang Nai and Cow Pat Ridge to Kiw Fin above Mae Khampong:


Only a little rain, as we were descending from the highest point along the ridge, after a quick lunch, but this did make the overgrown sections a little slippier and a few hikers found themselves sitting down in the mud briefly.


As predicted, about 10 kms walked, up about 550m, down rather more, in about 5 hrs 30 mins, I think. (Forgot to check the time.) Thanks to the leaders, drivers, shuttle-pickup drivers, Khun C for photos, and to all for good humour and companionship.

  1. Thank you so much for welcoming my daughter Adelaine and me on your hike. It was a great experience with such a diverse, inviting and fun-loving group.
    Please extend our thanks to Janet for giving us a lift back to Chiang Mai at the end of the day.
    Kindest Regards,
    Barb and Adelaine
