  • Walked to the top with my two of my sons (6 and 14). Took about 2 hours up (quite slow pace with many stops for snacks). Great view on top. Bring a lot of water (we drank about 4.5 liters) and...

  • Nice view of the Chaloklum Bay when you reach the peak. Warning: Do not use the loop route posted on Maps.me App! We went there on March 27 from the trail head close to Khao Raa Terrace. It was steep but well marked trail all the way up. It took us 1 hour 20 minutes to get there without stopping along the way. On the way back we decided to loop along the trail shown in Maps.me App. The trail disappeared after 20 minutes down hill. We decided to navigate with our phone and compass from my Fenix 5. Actually there was no trail physically on the ground although the App shows it was. It was a downhill path along a small creek full with cane spines, hanging vines, and rocks hard to climb. You can get lost there if you are not experienced in navigation and do not have a proper compass and map. There were ditches and underground caves on the ground one can accidentally fallen into. The cane thorns tore my pants beyond future use. Do NOT trust the trail posted on Maps.me and do NOT loop your hike!
  • Asking 40thb (or any price really) for this average at best hike is ridiculous. Once you get to the start of the hike then it's pretty straightforward way up. Hike itself is not dangerous and not even that difficult. Few places with good view on the way and also on the top. Being on the highest point is cool but other hikes/viewpoints were better imo.
