This will be a 6km round trip suitable for almost everyone, shady trail through the jungle mostly beside a stream with rapids and smaller waterfalls all the way up. A very pretty walk. Dtaat Mook waterfall is right at the top and very impressive at the moment.
Total trip will take about 2 1/2 hours, with a break for snacks at the main waterfall. (more…)

This will be a short 6 km walk at a relaxed pace suitable for nearly everyone, although there are quite taxing uphill parts of the walk. I expect we will walk for around 2 and a half hours and have a 30 minute break at the waterfall to eat snacks and admire the falls and optionally have a morning shower. Bring a swimming costume if you want to take a dip! (more…)

Thanks to John for these great pics taken during the walk up the pilgrim’s trail this Wednesday. The midweek hikes that we have had recently have proved very popular with between 10-25 people enjoying them.

Friday 9th of December 2011, Circular hike in Ob Khan National Park with Optional Swim

Ob Khan in Feb 2009

This is a relatively short unhurried circular hike of 4.5 to 6 km through beautiful forest and alongside the Nam Mae Khan. We start at an altitude of 340 metres and rise to a maximum of 475 metres. There are many up and downs and along the trails there are some short difficult sections where the trail has been destroyed by landslips or deteriorated over time or little bridges have become unusable. A short part of the trail is along a stream bed but no need to get wet feet. Another part involves climbing over some big boulders alongside the river. Besides hiking on two legs some of us might prefer to scramble up on all fours or slide down on our bums!

Wednesday December 7th, Walk up Pilgrim’s Trail to Wat Palaad and Then Back Down Through Huay Kaeow Waterfall

A hike suitable for all levels of walkers with a good path nearly all the way, although the Pilgrims Trail is a little steep. The only iffy part is the top 200m of Huay Kaeow trail, where it is a bit slippery. (more…)

Chiang Dao is one of the most scenic hiking areas in Thailand. Doi Chiang Dao Luang is the third highest peak in Thailand at approximately 2220 meters above sea level. Doi Chiang Dao is one peak of a limestone massif that has a number of peaks and ridges over 2000 metres in a horseshoe shape and has a series of forest types that change with altitude. The forest is almost untouched up here although there are a fair number of groups of hikers that go up here in season and camp near the peak.

A very good level of physical fitness is required, the climb up Chiang Dao is the steepest climb we do as a group and we will be walking on down to Den Ya Kot on the same day and walking on for a far distance on the second day to some hot springs. To take part in this trip you must book before November 30 we have limited places, so book soon if you want to come. We will be a small group of up to 10 people. (more…)

Sunday 27th November, Hike to The Peak Of Doi Pui…. Twice! “Roller Coaster Hike 2”, in Pui Suthep National Park

This hike will have many of the characteristics that I enjoy on our other ‘roller coaster hike’ the 3 peaks hike behind Doi Langka Luang. We will be walking along mountain ridges and enjoy some of the best views of the Pui Suthep National Park. It will also be a tough hike even for those who are quite fit. A good level of physical fitness is required. There is another easier hike on the same day.

My plan is to park at the foot of the path that runs up to the peak of Doi Pui from near Baan Khun Chang Kian, the Hmong Village. We will walk up the steep mountain ridge to the peak of Doi Pui and then back down the back of Doi Pui and on to the Buddha’s foot print ridge. We will stop here for some lunch or brunch. Then we will head back the way we have come, up the steep path at the back of Doi Pui and back down the front of Doi Pui back to our vehicles. (more…)
