Full description
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.

We had a wonderful day with our terrific guide. He explained the history of the temple and other interesting points along the trek. We had small group. Thank you to our wonderful young Denmark friends for making the tour special. If you get car sick, beware. The road ti the top has lots of sharp corners.

A very good, but challenging, hike. A narrow path through the forest. Our guides showed us a tarantula hole and details about various plants we passed. A beautiful place for our mid-hike lunch in a small mountain village and the temples were an interesting reprieve on the walk.
