17/07/02_ Mae Sa and Elephant Village circular hike

(In case if is raining heavily on Sunday morning, I might be postponing or changing the meeting time-please check at 06:30 on Sunday morning for any updates in the webpage)

It is nearly two years since we did this hike. What with rains during the week we have not managed to check that the route is still fine. It should be okay, but please be ready for possible diversions on the way, and keep attentive patiently to the hike leader.

The hike is of moderate difficulty, with manageable up-and downhill sections except for the first hour which will be a continuous uphill climb and is more challenging than the rest of the hike . After 7 to 8 km, we will arrive at the Elephant Village which is close to the Elephant Farm and have brunch at one of the local restaurants.

After the refreshment break , we will have to walk around 500 meters along Mae Sa Road before we will turn back to the Nature trail which will lead us back to our Starting Point.

Total estimated time of the hike including brunch: About 6 hours

Hike Leader: Arnie

If you want to join:

Just turn up at the meeting place on time. You do not need to tell us you are coming. We will be car-sharing. Places in cars are almost always available but cannot be absolutely guaranteed. We cannot accommodate groups.

Meeting Time and Place:

This time we will meet at 07:30 Am for an 07:40 hours start at the car park in front of the 700 years Stadium ( please see the map).There is no need to let us know you are coming.

Head straight out from the North West corner of the moat 2 km towards Doi Suthep on Huay Kaew Road (H.1004).

Turn right onto the Canal Road H.121

After 4.5 km you will see the traffic lights (don’t go in to the Stadium area.)

when you are at traffic lights of 700 years stadium you will see the big parking area on canal road in front of 700 years stadium there we will meet.
