17/06/25 Trip report Mae Win Huai Hoi Waterfall Loop

Under slightly cloudy skies sixteen hikers and one cyclist (no it is not a typo error) met up at Wat Matchimaram for the hike and at a little after 0830 the hikers set off for the hills while the cyclist set off along the road.  Steady progress was made up the first steepish section through farmland with frequent stops to admire the scenery.

Once through the farmland we entered the forest and the hike then became a bit of a nature trail with sightings of lizards, various bugs, a fine specimen of a Golden Tree Snake and some buffalo cooling off in the water

With the additional breaks to enjoy the wildlife we just failed to get to the waterfall, and shelter, before the rain started and so we got a little wet.  Our cyclist on the other hand made it to the waterfall, via a different route, and didn’t get wet but missed out on the wildlife…win some, lose some!2a10

After having our snacks the rain had stopped and the skies cleared once again so we continued on our way following the river back down to the Wat and our intrepid cyclist went in the opposite direction.  The descent was gentle and on good trails through light forest and farmland but, once again our timing was a little out as 5 minutes from the finish the rain came again but still, it did cool us off. 7a

Our cyclist, once again, beat the rain and was waiting for us at the Wat but after drying off and changing we all retired to a café a few kilometres down the road for the usual post hike refreshments.

Our thanks to all who to all who came along and made it a great day out and to Tom, Janet, Chan and Andrew for the photos.

For those interested in stats my gps gave 13.1kms, 540mtrs total ascent and a time of 5hrs 35mins but that doesn’t really matter as it was a great hike!

  2. Jealous. But did Arthur’s Seat yesterday.

  3. Nice looking snake, haven’t seen one of these only full green. Anyone know whether this one is venomous? I don’t know about Arthur’s Seat, but I did CMU to Nam Tok Sai Yoi and back, no rain, nice lush jungle.

    • Mildly venomous, venom injected from back teeth. Not considered dangerous to humans
