Beautiful trail. Very few people in high season, even on the weekend. Was warned of leeches, hoever did not experience any. There are mosquitoes though, so wear appropriate clothes or bring repellant. Beautiful flowers everywhere.

Passing the temple and then back to the forest. Uphill a bit and this session the path is quite unseen. Glad I paid and got the offline map for help. After passing the top mark of this route, all paths are clear and easy downhill. Just small rocks scatter on the path making it a bit technical to run.

Beautiful sights from the top. Did it back in 2012

Nice trail. Very steep in parts and not well marked... great views from the top.

Slightly confusing trail to find, very few markers and many false turns. Dense jungle in certain parts. Dtad Mok (cut fog) waterfall is beautiful and you will likely have it to yourself.

this is not a trail. basically crawling through the jungle and dodging giant spiders. hard to navigate as there are countless turns with zero trail markers or signs. the other parts of the trail that are above the riverbed are completely exposed with no shade at all. extremely hot even in winter months (when not in the forest it's mostly exposed).

Great walk, with lovely views back to the bay and lighthouse. Jungle section is pretty special, with lots of monkeys and squirrels above. Our 7 yo managed it okay.

Maybe I took a wrong turn, but this trail is basically a river wash and not a proper trail. There are no markings at all. I lost it when it splits into two farm roads and ended up going in the opposite direction. Lots of massive spiders and pretty cool hike, no people whatsoever. Definitely would not try this without GPS.

great trail. just after the trail crosses the 550m contour the trail is hard to find, might have been easier to follow the 2 sides of a triangle off to the right.

The review scaring people off from this hike is IMO way overblown. Hiking in the US isn't Disneyland (we have some seriously dangerous wilderness in fact). But it's true this is not a great hike for the inexperienced. This hike is HARD. It’s tagged as such and it’s up to the individual to decide if they want to take the risk. Plenty of hikes in the US and elsewhere are equally technical and scantily marked. If you are experienced then you'll be fine. As for snakes and scorpion. I saw none. Being aware of your surroundings is always required. So, what makes this hike so hard? First, it kicks off with lots of unrelenting elevation gain characteristic of many "hard" hikes. Look at the grade chart to decide if this is “hard” to you. Second, if you are not great at pathfinding you might feel yourself freaking out in the middle of the jungle. Some sections are overgrown, there are lots of trees down that you will need to climb over or under. A spider web will likely hit you in the face every 20 feet. Plants will brush up against your legs (none of them spiky in my experience). There are rivers of ants (more like small streams of ants but still OMG so many ants - they seemed harmless but I avoided stepping on them anyway). As for the trail not being marked. This is completely false. It’s marked, well-trodden, and anyone with trekking skills should be able to pick it up easily enough. The trail network overall however is not straightforward so GPS is recommended at least for making sure you’re still on the right path. Once you descend from the village picking up the path at the next intersection can be very tricky. You should be going straight and not switching back - and the continuation at this point is not super obvious (bring GPS, download the map, you'll figure it out). Start earlier than you think you’d need to complete this hike - it's a long one (but can be shortened by cutting over to the waterfalls - my recommendation if you get tired of non-stop jungle like me). If you are out of shape, don’t like bugs, and don’t feel comfortable relying on GPS for some sections then skip it. This trail does not have many views and is more about getting your ass kicked by the jungle. However, at the top there’s a village and some coffee shops and dogs that will threaten you (I just yelled at them and they left me alone).

A raised wooden walkway that is a gentle 40minute walk around this beautiful Mangrove forest.

The​ Best time​ to​ start trek &​hike there​ is​ around​ 5.30am to​ catch thé sunrise.

Superb hike of 4-5h, I feasted. Starting from the south, there is now a new road that makes a turn to the left. It must be taken and notice that at the beginning of the hike on the map, there are footprints that go up, you have to climb the wall (steep) of land. The beginning of the trek looks more like a forest than a jungle and the climb is quite hard. But when bamboos start to appear the charm appears too. The waterfall will delight you. The best spot for me is after, towards the point Y on the map, on the left there is wide carpet of rock and a sloping waterfall. I bathed there, and then dried lying on the rocks, it was incredible. I had a machete which allowed me to clear some places, otherwise I should have made small detours but nothing insurmountable it seems to me. The hike deserves its difficult I think.

You are going to cross the river several times (more than 30 times). So be prepared for wet shoes. The water was till my knees. At 1.8 km to the end, you find a blue sign, tell you to take a way at left because of slippery rocks. You should do so. (see the picture) Because of the flood, officially it was prohbited to go(see the picture) but we have done it.

lots of fun. a bit overgrown in parts but the waterfall is very worth it. nice relaxing hike and not too strenuous.

I wouldn’t call this easy! The path is straightforward, basically 1260 steps to the top, but you’re ascending 300m on a path that’s 600m long. It was heavy for me, combining the heath with the humidity. Bring enough water, you can fill your bottle at the top! Highly recommended though, the view from the top is amazing...

This trail had some steep areas but there were ropes tied along the trees to help with the elevation. We also took this trail back down so be careful of sliding gravel. It was super hot so bring water. We did this trail in May

what a beautiful view. go early to do it in peace. we were sweating but it was awesome. we wore sneakers and made sure to have appropriate clothes for the top

I live in Chiang Mai and I go hiking every week. In the last 2 years that's already almost 10 groups of tourists I've seen having problem there: people completely lost, people deshydrated or tired because not enough water or food, one person with scorpion or snake bite, people blocked because of fallen trees and no machete... When I asked how they have been here, all of them told me they found the route with this app. This is completely irresponsible from this app to share such routes without any detailed warning. Hey this is jungle, this is not a marked footpath like in Europe or USA! There is no marks, no staff in case of emergency, sometime no signal on telephone, no place to get food or refill water. It's quite dangerous because of snakes, flood or fallen trees. I would strongly dissuade people without a big experience of jungle and a good preparation to go there on their own.
