Sunday 3rd of April, Huay Tung Thao Figure of Eight
This is a 11.8 km hike and depending on the group speed it will take us around 4 hours.
We will start at HTT and walk about 3 km on a fairly flat area. Then we will go up from 350 m altitude to about 570 m within a 1,4 km distance. After this we will go downhill, crossing the “Small Waterfall” and arriving at our snack/breakfast break at the Mee Jok Reservoir.
Following the break we will proceed on another flat part before we will finally go up for about 2,5 km to an altitude of 650 m. The last part is a steep downhill with a great view over HTT.
Since nearly the half of the walk is quite easy going, it should be mentioned that the “Up Hill” and “Down” parts are not easy and would need some caution as they are partially quite steep and there are a lot of loose stones and scree on the path.
After arriving at HTT there are lunch places around for all interested.
Meeting Point: before the “Entrance Fee Booth” at HTT
Meeting Time: Sunday April 3rd, 2011 at 8:30 am
Drink / Food: Bring enough water and a bit of food for breakfast break in the middle of the hike
