What To Expect
Escape Chiang Mai and head for the hills, spending an exhilarating day cycling 35 kilometers on dirt trails through jungle and bamboo forests. The route uses elephant paths, fire roads and heart-pumping single track fun for an essential and exciting variety of riding. The fresh setting of Chiang Mai's beautiful surroundings makes for a perfect family day out on the bikes.
You begin the day at the photogenic Wat Tung Luang and ride along tranquil canals to two village temples that frame our route before we start climbing up. We'll pass farming hamlets and ride through a natural bamboo tunnel before reaching a remote elephant camp. Here we thank the elephants for blazing an exhilarating 10 kilometers of sensational single track dirt road that we can cycle on through a shady forest where you will hear exotic birds and will have a good chance of seeing monkeys.
An ethnic hill tribe will host us for lunch and offer local specialties from northern Thailand on the banks of the Mae Taeng river. After taking a break, we get back onto our bikes and take the road that will slowly rise before leading us back down to the river valley. We come across a crystal clean waterfall and there is the chance of seeing elephants passing-by along the road. Emerging from the trees, we pass through several small villages before reaching the end of our ride. We pack up our bikes for the return by the support vehicle to Chiang Mai, a journey of around 35 minutes.
