Full description
This half-day tour begins with a visit to Wat Umong, one of the oldest temples in Chiang Mai. Located in a lush green forest at the foothills of the Suthep mountain, it is now a well-known meditation center.

Explore the tunnel built by King Mengrai (the founder of Chiang Mai) to give monks a place to meditate in peace. See a Buddha field of broken sculptures and a library-museum in the temple area.

Continue to Phra That Doi Suthep, located at the top of Suthep mountain, where a relic of the Buddha is kept in the golden stupa. Climb a naga stairway to the main temple area and marvel at the views of Chiang Mai city from the balcony.

A very interesting tour with 2 nice guides + 1 driver just for my friend and I... We felt like VIP! Thanks to them. Lot of informations about temples, about Buddhism and good talking about life ! That was very good time for a low fare. We highly recommend this experience.

Very interesting temple tour

First by minibus to Doi Suthep, which unfortunately is very crowded, especially by the Chinese. But otherwise a very nice temple complex. Then to the temple ruin of Wat Omun, which is very nice and quiet and is little visited. A real oasis in the very lively Chiang Mai. Our guide was extremely nice and very knowledgeable.

It was an extremly nice trip with a very sophisticated tour guide who answered all our questions about everything. the Forest temple is especially nice after many loud days to relax and wander around.
