Meeting Point

Usual meeting point at Arboretum

Meeting Time

Sunday April 10th, 2011 at 8:00 am


We will drive up to CMU Coffee Shop with red songthaeow.

Pending on the number of people this would mean about 70 to 100 THB per person for the ticket.

At the end of the hike we will reach the 1004 road down from Doi Suthep and will wait there for red songthaeows to bring us back to Arboretum

Drink / Food

Bring enough water and a bit of food for breakfast break in the middle of the hike

Hike Description

This is a 12,2 km hike and pending on the group speed it will take us around 4 to 4,5 hours.

We will start at CMU Coffee Shop with a fresh morning coffee and will walk down about 4 km before we reach the 5-Way Junction which will be our usual breakfast place. After breakfast we will continue downwards for another 3, 5 km before we turn right into a little pass down to Monthaton waterfall.

The last part down to the waterfall will need some caution as it can be partially slippery and some bits need also a bit climbing.

The Trail

Here is the proposed GPS trail for this ‘Coffee Shop Monthaton Walk’.

And here is a screen shot in Google Earth.
