2019/04/21_Mon Jaem forest loop

Although the pollution levels are declining there may still be considerable variation from one area to another and it is recommended that hikers bring a face mask.

This is a relatively easy hike along the forested ridges of Mon Jaem with (weather permitting) views to the north (Doi Chiang Dao) and south (Doi Pui). The hike will be entirely on dirt roads with lots of shade and with a couple of modest hills and one major viewing point (complete with golden statue of pre-Lanna King 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 three and a half hours and afterwards we will retire for lunch at Therma Doi 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. Please offer your driver a fuel contribution of THB 100.

Hike leader: SRR



Upcoming hikes: General notice

Hikes are posted on this site for almost every Sunday. The hike plan is usually posted by the preceding Friday. The meeting for a hike is usually at a stated time between 07:00 and 08:30 on the Sunday morning. Sometimes hikes may be done by lunchtime, but often they continue well into the afternoon. For out-of-town hikes, people returning to Chiang Mai may not get home before evening.

Very occasionally hikes may be posted on this site which take place on days other than Sundays, but this is rare in recent years.
