If anybody is still interested in walking this this year I'll be there (in Nakhon Si Thammarat) on the weekend of June 20-21. So I could hike it in the days before then or ideally in the days after (22nd-24th?) June seems to be a pretty dry month for the area...

If no takers I'll give it a go anyway and report back later!

@wvwv, I will actually be doing this hike April 15-16 with another member of this forum. I was going to post soon to see if there was further interest, but I see you already have alternate plans. We will both be birding during our trip, with two key targets - Turquoise-throated Barbet and Malayan Laughingthrush - among other species not found often in southern Thailand.

Did you manage to find a guide, or will you attempt the hike without? I'm guessing when drier, the trail will be more apparent.

If alone I will probably try it without a guide. The GPS file would be very useful if you're there first. I have a GPS file but only 40% of it (below), I think somebody attempted it and then turned around. I hope the trail should be fairly obvious by then i.e. no sidetrails, and it should just be a case of following the ridgeline anyway. Good luck!
