Monks/Pilgrim trail closed.

Recommended Posts

I went to check last week if the trail was open, it's all shielded off. I asked the man in the box (at the exit of the zoo I think) if he knew when it would be open again, he didn't.

I thought the temples and national forests were all open again, no?

Does anyone have any idea when it will be open again?

It's a nice trek, second half, after Wat Pha Lat is a bit of a challenge though, very steep.

OMG.  Go get tested right away.  You'll die from Covid for sure!!!
It's a proven fact that SARS-Cov2 lurks in jungles (and infinity pools) and waits on the sides of trails (or under the surface of the water) until unsuspecting farangs happen by and then - BAM!  Ventilator!  Then the Thais will be clamouring to kick all farang out of Chiang Mai -- just because BritManToo crawled under the rope.  <Gasp> 
"How dare you!

Were you able to get through the Temple grounds all the way to the road?

Not sure if this is the same one or not. I have an app called AllTrails and this comes up in the search.

902201579_Monthathanwaterfalls.jpg.5c0607962432b8f576b9cee349a072a9.jpg

co-ords: @18.8170067,98.9258561,470 

Entrance has a 2 tier carpark, walk towards the (noise) waterfalls... 

The path starts off as a nondescript path up to the Left of the Falls 

As we had not even been looking for Signs - the path experience was quite a surprise! 

 

In the 'pool' pic, we are looking downwards back towards the 'crevice' path. The 'shed' to the Right is a small Shrine. The Monks in the opposite 'uphill' direction, disappear into the bushes... 

 

On the Lower Tier Carpark area has a selection of 'cafes' 

Good for a decent sit down lunch of typical dishes

Hill walking spreads viruses?

What if if solo small socially distanced groups, 

or members of same family living together?
