2018/07/08_Bua Chan Village Hike

Hike Description: This is a moderate hike of about 15 km. The start and end point to the hike is the Samoeng Road near to the Samoeng border. The starting point of our hike is 900 m above sea level; our highest point is 1320 m. We walk on wide dirt roads and in the village on a concrete road. It goes through a beautiful forest and some agricultural areas where we need sun protection.

The main group will take this hike at a gentle pace. If you cannot contain your energy and you want to gallop forward, please be clear about how you know the way. The hike should take 5-6 hours. After the hike we will stop for refreshments at a restaurant on the way back to CM.

Hike leader: Tom

Meeting place and time: Meet at 7:20am for a 7:30am departure, on the Samoeng Road (1269)  next to the Fire Station 100m west from the Samoeng Road’s southern intersection with Canal Road (121).

  1. I have a couple of car places available for getting to the meeting place from the CMU/Nimmanhemin area. If you are interested, leave a reply here, or email me – Michael

    • Hi Michael I am interested in joining and am staying in CM. If there’s any room in cars from CM to the meeting point I can chip in for gas 🙂


      • Hi Thomas. I can pick you up somewhere on Canal Road (121) near the University: for example immediately after the traffic lights on the south side of its junction with Suthep Road at 6.50am.

  2. All places in my car are now booked up!
