At this time of year, always re-check this webpage on the Sunday morning before leaving for the meeting point in case of weather updates. Hikes may be changed or cancelled at short notice.
A re-run of a nice nearby hike we did in May – without so many lychees as last time, but perhaps some other in-season delights. We walk from the arboretum, past Huay Kaew waterfall, Wang Bua Ban, across the road and then bridge (see picture above) to the lychee orchards and 5-ways junction, then down to Wat Doi Suthep. When we finish we will go to the regular restaurant at Wat Doi Suthep. After we will take a Songthaew back to the Arboretum for 40 Baht. The hike is about 5 hours, 12 kms. The first 2 hours is steep, then easier. Total height gain 1124m.
Starting point: Meet at the Arboretum at 07.45 for an 8am start.
- at least 2-3 litres of water/rehydration drink
- energy snacks and a picnic lunch
- protection from sun (hat, cream), rain, insects, spiky/itchy vegetation
- lots of energy, enthusiasm and a good sense of humour
