2021/07/04_Huai Lan loop

We will orbit the Huay Lan reservoir. It’s similar to a hike we did about four months ago, but the change from dry/smoky to wet/fresh season makes it feel rather different. The main group will go up onto a ridge on the west side and reach a high point with good views of Chiang Mai City and Doi Suthep on north West side and Huai Lan, Doi Ton etc on East side. Then return to base-level on the south side, and do another slightly lower climb on the east side. There is an option for gentler hikers to skip the ridge climb and instead visit the smaller Huay Pa Rai reservoir before rejoining the main route.

Total distance for the main option is 12km, with 500m elevation gain, expected to take 4-5 hours. Some sections are stony: good footwear and care are advised in order to avoid twisting an ankle.

Hike leader: John (with Michael as deputy)

If you want to come: Please make sure you have read the general advice on this website (see tabs above) as well as this specific post. If you still think this hike is for you, just turn up at the stated time and place (see below). Lifts in cars are usually available. (Please offer your driver THB 100 toward fuel costs for the return trip.)

Meeting time and place: 7:30am for a 7:40 departure from the side of the 1317 slip road in front of Promenada shopping mall.

Bring: as per usual advice (see tabs above). Especially note:

  • Good footwear in view of stony slopes
  • Care about social distancing. Thankfully we can enjoy hiking together again, but life is not completely back to the old normal.

  1. Hi, I’d like to join this hike on Sunday. First time with yourselves, but not first time hiking in Chiang Mai.

    Would it be OK to meet you at the reservoir itself? I understand I must be on time.
