Full description
In the morning, pick-up from your Chiang Mai hotel and drive to the base, a local farm house located in the heart of Mae Ngat valley (50 km/ approximately 1 hour vehicle transfer). You will do the bike fitting. The adventure for the day begins with a ride through picturesque countryside where farmers go about their morning routine. Your guide will make stops at various points of interest and give you further insight into local life, and learning about rice agriculture. Return to the farm house for a delicious Thai lunch.

After lunch enjoy more riding, tackling an easy single trail through the forest followed by flat, paved country roads zig-zagging through the valley. You will make a few stops again, including a busy local market. You end your ride at the famous Wat Ban Den temple where you can admire the intricate details of this stunning place of worship.

After a day of exploring this stunning Mae Ngat valley on two wheels, we then transfer you back to your Chiang Mai accommodation (arrival time approximately 17:30).
