16/12/18_Trip Report_Daat Mook Waterfall Loop

Fifteen hikers found their way to this substitute hike on a cool cloudy morning. After meeting at the Golden Buddha on the shores of Huey Tueng Tao, the group proceeded west down a path about 1.5 kilometers until reaching the stream that exits Daat Mook Waterfall. Following the trail that parallels the stream, the group moved easily up through wet vegetation, arriving at our destination in about one hour. Relishing the abundant shower provided by recent rains, several hikers explored the cool waters in the pool below the waterfall. After a break for snacks and drinks, the group crossed the exit stream and proceeded east along a path that intersects with the main trail descending toward Huey Tueng Tao.

At this point, the group split into two factions. The more energetic group of ten followed their leaders up the trail, planning to cross over the top of the waterfall. However, they found the trail was in poor condition, and near the top of the falls decided to return back to the main trail for safety reasons. They then followed a longer loop west down roads through farming country, returning to the starting point in just under 5 hours. Total distance covered by the long hike group was 12 kilometers and elevation gained about 450 meters with ups and downs.

The short hike group of five descended the main trail back to the Golden Buddha, arriving about 2.5 hours after departing. Total distance covered by the short hike group was about 4.5 kilometers and elevation gained about 200 meters with ups and downs.

  1. Hi, lovely post!

    We love to join on a hike, unfortenately ‘upcoming hikes’ seems not to be working…

    Please let us know if any hikes are planned tomorrow or day after (21st and 22nd) ?

    Kind regards Jesper and Sandra

    • Thanks, Jesper and Sandra. Yes, there is a problem with the “upcoming hikes” tab. However, all upcoming hikes appear on the main (“All posts”) tab. Hikes advertised here are almost always on Sundays.
