21 hikers, including 5 newbie visitors, met at CenFes and 4 regulars joined us at the trailhead, for a starting total of 25.
We quickly split into 3 smaller groups, each with their own leader(s) and making progress at a wide variety of speeds, but with mostly the same route. The main (rear) group of 15 completed the hike in about 5 hrs 30 mins but some of the more enthusiastic hikers didn’t stop for lunch and took nearly 2 hours less. Sorry to keep you waiting, guys and gals; hope the NP HQ was comfortable for you.
I think the distance and elevation figures given in the hike description were about right. Anyone have significantly different stats?
Thanks to multiple hike leaders, drivers, photographers, patient waiters. Aftermath at Doi Saket hot springs.
