18/02/18_Trip Report_Two Waterfalls Loop

The morning was cool and hazy when 30 hikers, including a few new faces, met at the Arboretum. After the “pep talk” we set out up the road, taking the trail off on the left, stopping when we reached Huay Kaew waterfall for a group photo. (This was a wonderful group of hikers who managed to stay together throughout the hike!) When we arrived at Wang Bua Baan  2 of the more hearty hikers announced they were splitting off to do a much longer hike, so we wished them well and hope we will hear from them again!

After crossing the road we continued up the rather steep path, and about an hour after starting out we found the narrow and overgrown short cut across to the main trail to Chang Khian waterfall. Here the trail becomes quite rocky and has a few steep downhill sections which all managed to navigate without incident. As far as I know there were no falls during the hike in spite of some tricky spots.

We found the waterfall full enough to be beautiful and refreshingly cold, so only a few waded in. This became a very social event with hikers standing or sitting in groups talking and talking! We spent something close to an hour enjoying this lovely spot and each other, before continuing on the loop and coming down to the road near the Boy Scout Camp. At that point it was almost noon, so we headed for Neo Cafe, refreshments and more socializing.
