  • From Chiang Mai: Full-Day Doi Suthep Trekking Tour

    1. From Chiang Mai: Full-Day Doi Suthep Trekking Tour

    Following pick-up, head 10 minutes outside of Chiang Mai to explore its beautiful forests. Your trek begins at Mon Tha Than Waterfall. This tour takes you through Doi Suthep-Pui National Park. Because this is an exclusive experience not available to travelers unaccompanied by a Doi Suthep park ranger, you and your small group might be the only ones on the path. Experience the grandeur and breathtaking views of the trail as you walk among forests of bamboo, tall hardwoods, a variety of colorful flowers and a diverse bird population. Cool down in the pools of several waterfalls on the trek. End your hike at Chiang Mai's most sacred temple, Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, located 16 kilometers (about 10 miles) from the city and at 1,066 meters (about 3,500 feet) above sea level. Enjoy the panoramic view of Chiang Mai and the Ping Valley from this beautiful mountain temple. After lunch, enjoy a...

    Mr Kam was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. On the tour was myself, my husband and a young man traveler. Nice small group meant it was easy to ask questions. The trek was not an easy trail at times. We’re used to these types of hikes in our Rocky Mountains, so this was not a problem for us but could be problematic if mobility is an issue. We stopped at the lower temple where a monk ordination was taking place. We were then driven up to the top of Doi Suthep where there was a huge complex temple and LOTS of people- praying, giving offerings- obviously a very religious place for Buddhists. Tourism in Thailand is currently low due to COVID2019 and no Chinese tourists being allowed out of China, so this was the first time we saw so many Asians in one place. Lunch padthai was okay. We stopped at a waterfall and dipped our toes in. Water level is really low due to drought conditions. We were grateful to be driven back to our hotel even tho the description said we wouldn’t be.

  • Chiang Mai: Full-Day Hiking Tour by Trailhead

    3. Chiang Mai: Full-Day Hiking Tour by Trailhead

    You'll begin by driving to the starting point, located approximately 1,500 meters above sea level inside the Doi Suthep-Pui National Park. From there you will hike through thick evergreen forests before reaching the highest point in the national park at 1,640 meters above sea level. From the summit you will hike along a narrow ridge with spectacular views of Doi Suthep Pui and beyond, and if you’re lucky you may catch a glimpse of Chiang Dao, the 3rd-highest peak in Thailand. The tour continues along a mountain ridge before descending through small fruit farms, and depending on the season, you can try some lychee or other fruits growing on the side of the trails. After approximately 8 kilometers the tour finishes in the village of Baan Khun Chang Kian, a small Hmong tribe village with a population of approximately 200 people. You can relax with a delicious coffee and enjoy the complime...

  • Chiang Mai: 6-Hour Doi Pui National Park Summit Hike

    4. Chiang Mai: 6-Hour Doi Pui National Park Summit Hike

    After being picked up in the morning from your hotel in Chiang Mai city, you will head towards your local hiking adventure. 2 hours after beginning your ascent, you will reach Wat Doi Suthep at the 1,100 meter mark. Here you will start to traverse through highland jungle and the old Hmong Hill Tribe Village near the summit of Doi Pui which you will reach after your 3rd hour. After a hearty lunch at the village and an approximate 1-hour climb, you will tackle the summit of Doi Pui peak. Here we get to enjoy 180 degrees views of the Mae Ping Valley. The trip will be completed by a climb with a 30-minute downhill stroll to the Doi Pui Camp grounds ,where your ride back awaits you. Refreshed with cold drinks and snacks, you will then head back to the comfort of Chiang Mai, but not before making a stop at Wat Suthep to marvel at this rich temple which was built centuries ago in 1383.

    This is tough, but very rewarding. I would highly recommend this to o anyone with a relative fitness level. The trek is through the jungle, up rocks and via temples.

Great time! Mr. Kam is a great guide very funny and knowledgeable. The hike was quite easy, anyone healthy will have no problems at all even if not very athletic. But it was a nice descent from the temple through the jungle. Food was simple but very good Pad Thai and fresh fruits. The waterfall is nice to bathe in and comes at almost the end of the hike so it is refreshing. Total time was less than expected around 4 hours. It was definitely worth it for Mr. Kam's stories and his clear love for the forest.

the tour was very exhausting, but worth it! a turtle passed our way (very seldom)! our tourguide was very competent and the meal and the coffee were excellent!

Excellent, it allowed us to explore less busy paths to Doi Suthep
