3 Days 2 Nights
Ride the awesome Mae Hong Son Loop Motorcycle Tour Thailand. If you were only going riding a motorbike tour in Thailand once then this is the route you have to ride, the ‘Famous Mae Hong Son Loop‘ renowned the world over as one of the greatest motorcycle tour routes in the world! More bends and hairpins than you can shake a stick over some of the highest peaks in Thailand and through some of the most splendid forests in the country.
Even for us living and riding in Thailand for over 20 years this route never gets old. Your tour leader used to live in Mae Hong Son province for many years so there’s probably no other tour leader with as much knowledge regards the cultures of the Hill Tribe people who live in this region and most importantly the roads.
The Mae Hong Son motorcycle loop consists mainly of route 1095 and route 108 which are both outstanding roads and we will concentrate on those roads but we will also be taking the lesser know back routes off the main tourist trail. You will pass through and visit multiple Hill tribe villages, stunning waterfalls, climb high into the mountains all on fantastic roads and stay in unique locally owned resorts. Its a short tour but one of the best experiences you can have in Thailand. You will be impressed.
3 Days of outstanding road touring on the Famous Mae Hong Son Loop. Unbeatable!
Leave around 10:00 am - Total distance 260 kilometers.
After breakfast we gear up and head North west toward the famous 'Route 1095' commonly known as the Mae Hong Son Loop. Just 23 kilometers from leaving Chiang Mai city we arrive onto the rural roads winding through picturesque Thai villages, stunning scenery warming us up for the roller coaster of a ride into the mountains. Arrive at the famous mountain town of Pai nestled within the Shan Mountains close to the border of Burma.
Leave around 8:30am - Total distance around 180 kilometers
After a hearty breakfast we head back onto the Mae Hong Son loop. Yesterdays ride was really a warm up for what today will bring and the twistiest section of this awesome biking road with a little more technical riding involved. Perfect road surface but with tight hairpin sections before arriving at a well known BBQ joint for a delicious BBQ lunch. After lunch it's up to the Burmese border approximately 1700 meters above sea level to visit 'Little Yunnan' Chinese Tea growing village before heading back off the mountain and into the Capital city of the province Mae Hong Son for fantastic Thai slap up meal and a few cheeky beers.
Leave around 8:30am - Total distance around 270 kilometers
It's hardly surprising this road is rated as one of the top biking roads in the world as even on our last stretch back into Chiang Mai the awesome road surface, perfect cambers and sweeping bends still come thick and fast. Riding through Doi Inthanon national park and up to the top of the highest point in Thailand for lunch before making our way into Chiang Mai. Estimated time for arrival is around 5pm and plenty of time to scrub up and see the highlights of Chiang Mai city.
