A large group of 17 showed up at the arboretum. As there were not enough vehicles, we hired a red song tao to take us and pick us up at the starting point on Samoeng Rd. for 800 baht.
The weather was overcast, a boon for this exposed hard-dirt track, and it was even damp and easier under foot than usual. But I don’t think I have ever seen the path down to the waterfall so slippery. There was appropriately a sign posted “beware of slippery”. Thankfully no one was hurt climbing down.
A number of hikers went right into the water, and all enjoyed the sight and sound of the cascade. We ate leisurely and left reluctantly, hoping to get back at the time we had given the driver, 1pm., but straggled in between 1:15 and 1:30.
This is a hike we all enjoyed and would recommend a repeat on an overcast day.
