          2. Is this repeated route that u hv tried last year as rocky or not that rough ?
          3. What will be the estimated cost for this event excluding airfare ya ?

          Hope can find comrads whom r interested like me to do trainings 2geter in SG b4 setting off for this hike , if any.

    • Porters are available. Don’t worry about the load. 30 baht per kilogram.
      There are many routes. Waterfall, maple leaves and many view point. The routes are flat, sand, no rock or climbing.
      For the cost we can share. 3000 baht roughly for 3 days exclude food.
      Cheer.

      • Cool …. my 2 worries taken off yea!
        Let me submit my unpay leave 1st, if approve , then I revert to u w/cfmation ya .

        Hope there’s at least another lady companion to hitch along .
