2021/02/28_Ban Pong upland farming loop

This new hike is accessed from the southern part of the Samoeng Road and will partly follow an old hike route by former hike leader Anders. lt is a loop hike of approx 15kms through a mainly agricultural area (with some good valley views) and some forest areas. Total elevation is 1,200 metres but most of the uphill is gradual, with most of the route on dirt roads and forest paths. The hike will start five kms from the main road and 4WD or pick ups will be required to drive the small dirt and concreate road to the starting point, which has parking for a max of five vehicles. In the unlikely event that we have more vehicles the extra ones can part at the temple car park on the main road and the hikers transfer to 4WD/pick ups. The hike should take about four to five hours and can be considered only moderately difficult. After the hike we will take refreshments in a Thai restaurant on the nearby hill on Samoeng Road, overlooking the American International School and the Hillsborough Country Hotel.
