17/04/16_Trip Report_Back to Doi Lanka

18 hikers in a convoy of 7 cars and 3 motorbikes reached the starting point at 9 o’clock to climb Doi Lanka Noi. The first 2km was steep uphill but the weather was cloudy and there was a cool breeze to condition the hikers. For the final ascent, almost all the hikers chose the “goat trail” rather than the “chicken trail”. We all enjoyed a fantastic view: not perfectly clear, but more dramatic for clouds hurrying through the valley below.
We had lunch at the top of Doi Lanka Noi while two hawks were chirping loudly to threaten us because their nest was nearby.  After lunch, we started hiking again to descend the mountain on a different spur, except for one hiker who needed to get home more quickly and returned by the same trail which we used for climbed the mountain. However, some of the hikers left the main path, diverting to a viewpoint along the way and then scrambling down a steep rocky edge of the spur. A few small rocks were dislodged on this way down, to the peril of those below.

 

This hike was not a complete loop; a couple of cars had been positioned two or three km along the valley road, and were used to transport the drivers of other vehicles. After that, we enjoyed coffee, soft drink or beer at a local cafe which is near the starting place, but a scream broke out suddenly!! A very fat leech was noticed on Anders’ leg, leaving a river of blood when it was picked off. Anders found other leeches on himself later, which left him dripping well into the evening.  Anyway …  Thanks to everybody who cooperated in making the hike.
