18/04/22_Loop hike east of Baan Khun Chang Khian

We will meet at the arboretum at 7:15 for a 7:30 departure, car pooling up to the village, driving slowly and carefully where needed as the road is bady in need of repair. The trail leaves from in the village, heading east out the back road, and is generally downhill, steeply at times where it turns off the main road. Once we are down in the orchard area we follow a rocky dirt road until we come to a narrow turn-off downhill again, and then up through a wooded area, crossing a small bridge and coming again to a dirt road.  We will follow this upward until it intersects with the main road leading back to the village. The elevation gain is about 400 meters and the time to complete the hike about 4 1/2 hours. The newest coffee shop in the village has plenty of seating and a choice of our favorite dishes as well as good coffee, but no beer.  For those who need beer, it is likely available at the shop down the road.

Estimated durations: driving 1hr, hiking 4½hrs, refreshments 1hr, driving 1hr: total 7½hrs, i.e. return to Arboretum around 2.30 – 3pm.

If you are a passenger please consider giving your driver 100 baht.

Bring good footwear, at least 2 liters water, sunscreen, raingear, energy and good humor.

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.
