17/09/10_Mok Fa Waterfall Mystery Hike

This Sunday we will try a mystery hike on a trail in the Mok Fa Waterfall area that the group has not tried yet. The last time the group visited Mok Fa Waterfall our ranger suggested a hike involving two mountains in the area, so we have taken the ranger up on his offer to try out this hike. We are not sure how many kilometers the hike will be, but it should not be too phyiscally demanding as there are not any extremely high mountains in the area. However, the trail could be overgrown a bit and there could be some water crossings, so please be mentally prepared for bit of bush/water. Hopefully it will be a nice opportunity to explore a new area that not many people visit.

There should be some swimming in the waterfall after the hike if the weather conditions are good, so bring a towel and/or swimming clothes if you plan to swim (however, conditions may not be favourable if there is rain). We will have lunch at a restaurant near the park entrance.

 

We will post an update regarding the weather if necessary at around 6:50 on Sunday.

  1. In my opinion we should bring some foods in case it’s a long hike !!
    Thank you 😍😍

    • Yes, this is a good idea because we don’t really know how long it will be. I will bring some cashew nuts.

  2. Hi! We are visiting Chiang Mai for the coming week. We will be 3 adults, plus a 1.5 year old baby (he site with us in a backpack). This sounds like something interesting and something we would love to try. Do you think this hike will be suitable for us to join? Thanks, Claire

    • We have hikes every Sunday and you are very welcome to join. More details will be available about the next hike later this week, around Thursday.

  3. The waterfall at the end totally made it unforgetable for me.

    • Great to hear that! Glad you enjoyed it and hope to see you on future hikes.
