Important notice about meeting point. We will meet at the Susco petrol station out past Sansai Noi market. See below for more details!!
A repeat of a hike we did a couple of years ago .
The forecast is for sunshine & views from the ridge should be great after the rain, but please check on this website Sunday morning in case the forecast is wrong & the hike cancelled!
A relatively easy hike with nothing too steep or dangerous, but an unavoidable, short section along a surfaced (but quiet) road. Probably around 5 hours, 10 km with 600m climb. Afterwards, we’ll stop off at the coffee shop / restaurant in Pang Hai for refreshments.
We’ll first visit Thepsadet Waterfall, then ascend through coffee plantations to the ridge where we will take a lunch break.
After lunch we will continue along the ridge to the dirt road between Thepsadet & Mae Kamphong road. We’ll then descend this to the concrete road that leads back to the start point.
