This week’s hike will be an easy one. We are going to keep several cars at the White Buddha which is on R1229, and then all the hikers head to Ban Mae Tha Krai which is on R1230 using the remaining cars. We keep the cars in the village, and start the hike heading west. We turn southwards at a 3-way junction, and reach the White Buddha again as our hiking goal. The hike length is about 7.8km, with about 450m elevation gain. Estimated walking time will be 4 hours.
