17/06/11 Trip report Huay Chang Khian Huay Mae Yuak Loop

Nineteen optimists set off from the Scout Camp at a little after 0730 on what turned out to be a pleasant day’s hiking with only one light shower and that occurred during the brunch break when everyone was under a conveniently sited farmer’s shelter.  The lower sections of the loop were quite humid but, apart from that, hiking conditions were good and the hike was completed in 4hrs 40mins.

There were a few spots to get a good view of Chiang Mai and the surrounding countryside and there was also quite a bit of insect and plant life seen on the way including a butterfly which had just emerged from its cocoon.  Not many lychees though, seems as though the ones seen earlier in the week have been picked and sent off to market.sun1

sun2 After the hike, those that could, went to a nearby restaurant for the usual refreshments and socializing.

Our thanks to all who came along and made it a fun day and to those who sent in photos, sorry but I couldn’t get them compressed enough to go in the report.

For those interested in stats 12.7kms and 780mtrs vertical ascent.

  1. Stunning picture of butterfly and its thingy. Who took it?

  2. I can compress photos if they’re sent to me. But – better – I would welcome volunteers from among our frequent or occasional hikers, if anybody would be able to help provide occasional computer/editing assistance with hike reports.
