This is a hard hike, the first 6Km is a very steep uphill climb, at the top is a hill tribe village where you can buy food, and drinks. The next 14 Km is an easy downhill trail with a few blown down trees, and a 3Km walk down the road at the end to get back to your starting point.

The trail is great with literally no people and quite steep sections so go for it only if you’re intolerant long hiking (it took me more than 5h). Some of the parts are done on the downhill trail so watch out for bikers. In the middle there is a little village with an amazing coffee so this is a must try. In the last section you can take a trail along the river to avoid walking down the busy road. Enjoy

Great hike through the jungle. Wear breathable pants to protect from some spiky plants. Hike up was pretty steap and hard with the heat and humidity. but lots of beautiful plants and wildlife. lots of restaurants in the village at the top for lunch. trails are great. no need for a guide if you have the gps map. i recommend taking an extra 15-30 min at the waterfall at the start. its very pretty.

Really enjoyed this one. The forest is very scenic all the way and the views are so beautiful. We turned left earlier at Sai Yoi falls sign. The trail there is rather steep but doable and it's totally worth it because of seeing the waterfalls and skipping most of the hike along the highway.

We had a great time hiking this trail. At the hill tribe village we enjoyed coffee and a meal with terrific views. We had trouble finding the trail beyond the village & didn't want to disturb anyone by walking through their backyard so we backtracked, took a side trail, & rejoined the loop. Instead of hiking the last 3 km on the road, we continued down the mountain and ended on the Pilgrim Trail. There were a lot of amazing things to see along the stream on this last part.
