2018/06/24_Loop hike: Doi Pui summit and THE coffee-shop


The hike is ON!

If the weather is fair, we will meet at the Arboretum at 07:30 and car pool up to the barrier below Doi Pui summit. Leaving our cars there, we start out on a gentle uphill walk to the summit, take a few photos for the record, and then begin the descent, which has several quite steep sections. The views at this time of year should be spectacular. We have even been able to see Doi Chiang Dao a few times, but no guarantees. The only guarantee is that the tricky trail will provide some fun. Since it is rainy season there is always the possibility of leeches at high elevation. When we arrive at the bottom of the steep section we will head for THE coffee shop (at the CMU agriculture research garden) for refreshment, and then return to the cars, following the road and a side trail. We then have the option of lunch and further refreshments at the temple parking area.

Total time approximately 5 hours, or more if we linger over coffee and lunch.

Bring sturdy shoes, hiking poles if you use them, about 2 liters water, snacks, energy, enthusiasm, and a sense of humor.

Hike leader: Janet

Meeting time and place: 07:30 at the Arboretum carpark on Huay Gaew Road. See maps below.

    • You’re welcome! Judging by past experience (as well as the current weather forecast), the hike’s happening is more likely than not.

  2. Hi Janet, I am interested in joining you tomorrow for the hike! Do you have a contact number? Is the hike happening tomorrow? Evie

    • Hello Evie. The hike will probably happen, but please check this page at 06.30 on Sunday morning, where you will see a notice of cancellation if it has to be called off as a result of heavy rain.
