17/07/30_Mok Fa Waterfall Circular Hike

img_0012_resize

This is a short hike to a spectacular waterfall that should have a decent amount of water at this time of year and provide good photo opportunities. According to a previous hike report

https://chiangmaihiking.wordpress.com/2014/09/23/140921_trip-report_mok-fa-waterfall-circular-hike/)

the hike itself should take about three hours and be relatively easy, but the group hasn’t hike this trail in about three years and some negotiations with park officials may be necessary, so some diversions and delay could arise.

There could be some swimming in the waterfall if the conditions are good, so bring a towel and/or swimming clothes if you plan to swim (however, conditions may not be favorable due to the high amount of rain recently). We will have lunch at a restaurant near the waterfall.

If it rains, we still plan on visiting the waterfall to try to take photos, but the actual hiking will be cancelled. This video was taken recently, so there may be good photo opportunities if there is a lot of rain.

  1. Hi all :),
    Sorry to post here! Completely unrelated to the upcoming hike.

    Just wondering if anyone has information (gpx, tips, landmarks) for the trail from 700 yr stadium to Huay Thung Thao?

    Tried this last with some gpx downloaded off the net, but got hopelessly lost 😦 first crossed the reservoir and then ended up climbing along the waterfall. Then started again from the irrigation office 😦

    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated 🙂 also don’t suppose anyone is planning on doing this hike anytime soon?
    Thank you for reading this far,
    Jack

    • Just go north, keeping the mountain on your left hand side. Don’t go uphill.
