2018/06/24_Loop hike: Doi Pui summit and THE coffee-shop

 

In case of heavy rain, a notice of cancellation will be placed here by 06:30 on Sunday morning

If the weather is fair, we will meet at the Arboretum at 07:30 and car pool up to the barrier below Doi Pui summit. Leaving our cars there, we start out on a gentle uphill walk to the summit, take a few photos for the record, and then begin the descent, which has several quite steep sections. The views at this time of year should be spectacular. We have even been able to see Doi Chiang Dao a few times, but no guarantees. The only guarantee is that the tricky trail will provide some fun. Since it is rainy season there is always the possibility of leeches at high elevation. When we arrive at the bottom of the steep section we will head for THE coffee shop (at the CMU agriculture research garden) for refreshment, and then return to the cars, following the road and a side trail. We then have the option of lunch and further refreshments at the temple parking area.

Total time approximately 5 hours, or more if we linger over coffee and lunch.

Bring sturdy shoes, hiking poles if you use them, about 2 liters water, snacks, energy, enthusiasm, and a sense of humor.

Hike leader: Janet

Meeting time and place: 07:30 at the Arboretum carpark on Huay Gaew Road. See maps below.

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.
