18/07/01 Trip report Pam’s Ban Doi Pui Loop

7

A great turnout for this Sunday’s hike, 21 in all, consisting of 6 visiting and 2 local Newbies and the usual mixture of regulars making it a very interesting group.  The hike started off under partly cloudy skies and cool temperature and was promptly lead, by yours truly, the wrong way, got to pay more attention on the trail rather than chatting. It was only 20mtrs so, no harm done and best get the mistakes over early.  Leaving the village we followed the farmers road for a while before taking a smaller trail which took us into the forest proper.  A water/re-grouping break was taken after about 45 minutes at a convenient viewing point just before the start of the first, small, ascent.43 Once watered and fully re-grouped the warm-up ascent was made and another short break taken at the top to admire the scenery before setting off along the ridge and the downward part of the hike.2

The ridge section was a bit slippery in places but the going was generally good and some nice views were to be had inbetween the trees.  The ridge trail came to a dirt road which took us through some orchards and to a junction which marked the start of the long ascent ahead and, also, a suitable place to stop for a snack break and the usual re-group.  Here we noticed a large number of hairy caterpillars on the trees, luckily nobody came into contact with them and there had been no reports of leeches either.  Snacks over and everyone psyched up we began the ascent with 2 groups initially and that quickly became about 4, not a problem as it was a “straight” run back to the village and a number of the group were familiar with this part of the hike.  5Once the ascent was completed the final kilometre retraced the our steps of earlier on in the day and gave a nice “warm down” period and time to get prepared for the well earned post hike refreshments.16

Everyone made it back to the village in one piece and unscathed, a little tired and a few aching muscles maybe but nothing that a drink, something to eat and a chat wouldn’t cure.20180701_apresHike

For those interested in stats it was about 14km with a total ascent of 720mtrs and 4 to 4.5 hours but, time doesn’t matter so long as you enjoyed it.

Thanks to all who joined the hike to day making it a great day out and especially to our visitors who were/are on a tight schedule and chose to take the risk and come with us, the “regulars” really appreciate it and enjoyed your company.

Thanks for all the photos too, I can not remember who sent them but you know who you are!
