A really fun, hike with good group from the Doi Pui mountain village up to the peak of Doi Suthep and around to the village from another direction. We had steep climbs, lots of leeches as well as heavy rain and enjoyed every minute.
The hike was a loop but I failed to turn off my tracking which explains the leg at the bottom of the map.
To get away from the heat, our group began in a nearby mountain village, Moncham. We were soon enjoying beautiful views and the low clouds provided a nice, moody mist for the hike. Please not that the meeting point and lunch spot are improperly listed on the map. A limitation of the site I guess.
Nice 5 1/2 hour hike through jungle and occasional farms. Lots of little critters and interesting plants to see. This is located on the road north of Mon Cham so you need to turn off before the MonCham road and loop around the back. Bring plenty of water because it is hot. If you're lucky you'll have some cloud cover and that means you should have some sort of rain protection.
Short, 1 hour hike starting at the trailhead of the Pilgrim's Trail hike. A different hike to change things up from the Palaad version. Leaves cover the trail quite a bit so make sure you're staying on it. This time of year there's a good stretch of burned area. The cut back from one road to the other near the end requires that you walk around a fence. Just look for the opening.
This is a very nice, 3 hour hike from the first rest stop on the road to Doi Suthep Temple, to the Temple itself. You can park just below the zoo and follow the same creek for an extra 20 minutes or so but we drove to here for time. The trail is pretty well marked except for a couple of spots that had us turning around a little.
