Trip Report_17/02/19 – Buddha Footprint – Easy Alternate Hike

We were all surprised when 12 hikers showed up for this shorter hike, all eager to go! There were enough cars too, so we set off on good time for the drive up to Baan Doi Pui. When the parking attendant at the upper parking lot saw our hiking gear, it was obvious to him that we that we would be gone a long while, so we were relegated to the school lot below. After regathering at the upper lot, we counted noses, welcomed the 2-3 new hikers to the group, and set off.

We never reached any record high speeds, though a few faster walkers managed to create a gap between us. About 1/2 way we took an enforced break for water, and then forged on to the ridge, reaching it about 2 1/2 hours after we set out. The view was “dusty”, but at least we were not enveloped in fog, and the temperature was very pleasant.

After a longish snack break, we went to see the Buddha Footprint. I think I remember there was a time when it did look like a footprint, but one would need a good imagination to see one now. Some of the hikers continued a bit farther to look for a better footprint, and came back having to admit that the one we had seen was it.
From here we kicked up great clouds of dust as we “raced” back to the village in 1 1/2 hours and crowded around the table in our favorite khawsoy restaurant. What a surprise to have Peter, in the midst of a much longer hike, appear and join us for lunch!
