17/01/01_New Year’s Day Hike: Doi Lang Lo Loop


A hike to work off the effects of the previous night’s festivities and break all those New Year resolutions. The hike will commence beside the Mae Pha Haen reservoir. After one kilometre of flat paths we will ascend a series of steep slopes with two short rest breaks (the second beside a shedded Cobra snake skin, if it has not decomposed over xmas). We will then climb up a six metre rock outcrop which, although not difficult, does have a drop off on one side so a guide rope will be provided. We will have lunch about 100 metres down from the Doi Lang Lo summit on the far side at a spot which has, on a clear day, impressive views of the Chiang Mai countryside. On the descent some of the steep slopes may prove slippery and if necessary a guide rope will be provided. We will hike down a series of ridges and then have a relatively flat three kilometre walk along the base of Doi Lang Lo back to the cars. The hike should take 5-6 hours and could be considered reasonably strenuous. Please note that if you have difficulty ascending/descending steep slopes or have a fear of heights then this hike is not for you. After the hike we will retire to the San Kampaeng hot springs for refreshments and a swim.

  1. Considering this hike with three other friends I am traveling Thailand with. We are all fit, active people, but not incredibly experienced hikers. Our main concern is with the rock section (700 to 1000 meters), specifically when it requires a rope. Will we be okay with moderate experience, or is it a seriously risky section? Are shorts okay?
