17/06/25 Mae Win Huai Hoi Waterfall Loop

17/06/25 0620 – Today’s hike is on but there could be some rain 

As the rainy season is upon us check this webpage on Sunday morning, after 0630, for an update as the hike may be changed, or cancelled, at short notice.

This Sunday’s hike takes us south of Chiang Mai to Mae Win and a loop that was last done over 2 years ago.  Starting and finishing at Wat Matchimaram the hike follows trails through farm land up into light forest and, at about the half way point, joins a trail at Huai Hoi waterfall and then follows the Nam Mae Puai for about 4kms before we cross it (you will get wet feet here) and take a dirt road through farmland back to the Wat.

The hike is about 13km and has a total ascent of about 500mtrs.  There are 2 reasonably steep sections of a few hundred metres each but, apart from that, the hike is not strenuous and there is the opportunity to cool off half way round at the waterfall.  The hike should take under 6hrs but that is dependent on how long is spent at the waterfall.

In addition to strong boots, etc., insect repellent is essential, sun block highly recommended as some of the hike is in open land.
