2 Days 1 Night
After a rewarding day of riding to the top of Pakia Mnt. (1750m) with incredible views of the Chiang Dao Mountain range, we spend the night at the summit in comfort to descend the next day into Mae Taman Valley / Mae Taeng Valley.
OFF ROAD 1 DAY UPHILL – 1 DAY DOWNHILL
A short 1 hr drive takes us to the base of 5700 foot high Pakia mountain right next to the famous Doi Chiang Dao mountain range “The last tooth of the Himalayas”. This well shaded uphill bike ride to Pakia Summit becomes more and more rewarding as we approach the top with its breath taking views of Doi Chiang Dao. We spend a peace full night in the cool air of Pakia mountain. The following day we cruise one of the many trails down the mountain depending your skill level. This is a truly remarkable experience and is reserved for the fit nature buff.
