17/02/19_Roller Coaster Ridge Hike To Doi Pha Ngom

roller2

This is a rather strenuous hike taking about 6 hours or more, and includes some narrow paths.  From the meet point, we will drive for about 50 km  towards Chiang Rai.  We start high, at an elevation of 1400 meters and continue uphill to our first peak at 1700 meters , and then up and down following the ridge to our final peak, Doi Pha Ngom at 1767 meters.. There are many great views, including to Doi Langka Luang .  The trail is mostly shady. We will stop on the way for a snack break and later a picnic lunch at the summit of Doi Pha Ngom.

Hike length about 10 km with 900m elevation gain.  Hopefully some nice cool breezes up there 🙂

    That was by far the most challenging hike I have done with the group so far.
