3 Days 2 Nights
Three days of cycling and overnight in a resort with swimming pool.
Experience the Thai countryside by bicycle. We pick you up from your hotel and transfer you by car to a small traditional village about 20 minutes outside Chiang Mai. We will cycle through traditional villages with wooden houses on stilts, ride through the rice fields along lazy back roads and stop at a village school. Encounters such as water buffaloes crossing the street or children surprised by the unusual sight of foreigners in their village are to be expected. Overnight in a resort with swimming pool. Distance today 27 kilometers.
You meet up with your Thai mountain bike guide, who is dedicated to this circuit. We head off through the rice paddies and will gradually win height as we tackle some dirt roads leading up into the lush greenery at the bottom of some mountain slopes surrounding the Doi Lom hill. It is here we encounter a Karen minority village and a community of Hmong tribes people further up the road. We take some time to stroll around and learn a thing or two about their lifestyles. Now we brace ourselves for some pretty intense uphill riding which will reward us with some beautiful mountain scenery along the way, before we join a paved road that will gently bring us down again while we enjoy the surroundings. Overnight in a resort with swimming pool. Distance today 36 kilometers.
After a delicious breakfast you start your self guided adventure, we designed a detailed route description for you. The easy route will pass villages, ricefields and the beautiful Chiang Mai Grand Canyon. The longer one will also pass the Night Safari with daytime zoo, little known Doi Kham hilltop temple with a huge white Buddha statue and you will climb some hills. After you will arrive back at the resort we will transfer you back to Chiang Mai. Distance today 16 or 32 kilometers, you choose.
