Twenty four adults, two young boys and three dogs turned up for this Huay Tung Tao hike. After an uneventful beginning one co hike leader was confused by a fallen tree over the path and took the wrong turn, but this was quickly corrected.  As we approached the “Temple of golden swans” there was a minor drama when a local dog took umbridge at the presence of one of our hiking canines and attacked it, but was chased away with little harm done.

The buffalo corral (minus the buffalo) provided a welcome rest point for our young hikers and some other hikers who appeared to have underestimated the length of the hike. The main viewing point was reached in just over 2.5 hours and provided a welcome smog free vista of the surrounding countryside. Shortly after, the same co hike leader took a wrong turn but this was fortunately corrected by the second co hike leader and we reached the lunch stop in the valley just after three hours. During the gradual climb out of the valley we passed through a Lychee orchard which proved an irresistible temptation for our youngest hikers.

With some of this fruit not quite ripe, inevitably one of the young boys was stricken with a sore stomach (and perhaps acute boredom). However, one hiker gallantly pushed on to the end of the hike and drove back in his truck to pick up the boy and other assorted hikers. With the sun taking its toll the group was very spread out at the end but most hikers completely the 17.4Kms hike in just over six hours. Afterwards most of the hikers retired to a lakeside restaurant for much welcomed drinks and food.
