24 hikers gathered in front of Promenada and the convoy set off toward the starting place. But -sorry to J ! – nobody noticed her presence and she was left behind. PG tried to call her when we arrived at Mae Pha Haen reservoir but he couldn’t get a connection.
A biker joined us at the starting place and the total number of hikers again became 24. We started the hike at 08:15 and walked on the motorbike trail for 1.1 km and then began climbing up to the mountain.
It was a rocky and steep climb up. 15 hikers made it to the top of Doi Lang Lo at 10:30 and the other 9 hikers waited below the peak, having an early lunch.
All the hikers started go down the mountain after the two groups came together at 12:10, and got to the parking place at 13:40. Some hikers slipped during the descent on steep rocky slope. They got scratches but all the hikers were able to return to the original place safely.
The total walking time was 5 hours 25 minutes and the total distance of the hike was 11.2km. It was tough hiking even though Doi Lang Lo is not a high mountain.
We then moved on to a restaurant outside the entrance of San Kampaeng hot springs, to have meals, cold beers and drinks,. Then we enjoyed bathing at the hot springs swimming pool. Thanks to everybody who co-operated in making the hike.
