17/07/23_Doi Ton short loop hike

If there is heavy rain, we might cancel the hike. If we cancel, we will post a notice here by 06:30 on Sunday.

In the middle of the rainy season, we offer a short hike in Doi Ton area. The peak altitude of this mountain is only 820m  but the view from the top will be an unforgettable memory if the weather is fine.  We leave from beside the reservoir and start a steep climb, but it is a good trail.  We will walk to the south after getting to the top of the mountain, and then turn toward the starting point.

Total time is about 4 hours.  Hike length about 7.8km.  You can get back to the city center by 13:00  if you don’t choose the “option”.

Option : After the hiking, we will go to a restaurant which is outside San Kampaeng hot springs to have refreshments. And then, those who wish can swim at the swimming pool of San Kampaeng hot springs. (Hot springs entrance fees are: Foreign tourists for THB100, Foreign residents with Thai driving licence for THB50, Thai adults for THB40, Thai children for THB20.  Swimming pool fee for THB50, Private bathing room for THB60.)

Well-behaved dogs are welcome on the hike, but not in the hot springs area.
