2017/05/21 (b) HARDER HIKE: Doi Lang Lo Loop

 

The hike will commence beside the Mae Pha Haen reservoir, about twenty five minutes drive from the meeting point. After one kilometre of flat paths we will ascend a series of steep ridges. We will then climb up a five metre rock outcrop which, although not difficult, has a drop on one side so a guide rope will be provided. We will have lunch at a spot 100 metres down from the summit with good views, on a clear day, of the CM countryside. We will hike down a series of ridges, ending with a relatively flat 3km walk back to the cars. Please note that if you have difficulties with steep slopes or a fear of heights then this hike is not for you. In the event of heavy rain the hike may be cancelled – please consult the website at 7am on Sunday morning. The hike should take 4-5 hours and could be considered moderate to reasonably strenuous. After the hike we will retire to San Kampaeng hot springs for refreshments/swim.

  1. Doi Nang Lo.

      • The Sunday hike peak isn’t called Doi Lang Lo, it’s called Doi Nang Lo, at least according to the map, in both English and Thai. Not so important though, eh, as long as the leaders know where it is! 😉

  2. Used to it was showing “Doi Lang Lo” on the military map. So, still using this name. Do the hikers confused if changed the name?
