2021/02/07_Mon Jaem forest loop

This “old favourite” hike is normally a relatively easy one, along the forested ridges of Mon Jaem with (weather permitting) views to the north (Doi Chiang Dao) and south (Doi Pui). A new extension to the loop might be offered as a late option, depending on some last-minute reconnaissance.

The hike is mostly under forest shade. Formerly it was entirely on dirt tracks, but recently some sections have been made into (little-used) concrete road. There are a couple of modest hills and two good viewing points: a new one on a jetty platform (pictured above), and the old cliff-top one with the golden statue of the pre-Lanna king, Khun Wilangka). We will also meander through a small vineyard (no wine on sale, unfortunately) and through the small settlement of Mon Jaem towards the end of the hike. (Young-at-heart hikers will probably have the option of enjoying a box-cart ride down the long slope of dirt track just before the end point). The hike should take just three to four hours and afterwards we will retire for lunch at Between restaurant.

Meeting time: Sunday 7.45AM for an 8.00AM start. The car journey should take approx. 40 minutes.

Meeting Point: The car park bordering on Canal Road in front of (but not inside) the 700-Year Stadium complex.

If you want to come: Check that you have read the general conditions and advice on this website, as well at this particular post. If you still think the hike is for you, just turn up at the meeting time and place. Lifts in cars are almost always available although they cannot be absolutely guaranteed. Some drivers may request you wear a mask in the car, and some may restrict the number of passengers they carry. Please offer your driver a fuel contribution of THB 100.

Hike leader: SRR (with possible add-on by MM)
