What To Expect
After an early morning pick up we transfer to our cycle start just outside Chiang Mai. We begin our ride slowly as you get used to your bike on quiet country roads that take us through paddy fields, fruit orchards with backdrops of stunning mountains and on into the Sri Lanna National Park. We are privileged to be allowed to ride across the dam of the sixth largest park in Thailand, Sri Lanna is comprised of valleys and mountains, endless number of streams that feed the Mae Ngad reservoir which feeds the Mae Ping River. We'll cycle approximately 20km and finish at Mae Ngud reservoir. This national park is fringed with forests and the mirrored surface of the water reflects the peacefulness of the park.
We take off our bike helmets and put on our life vests and launch our kayaks for the next phase of our adventure. We will paddle along the jungle edge of the lake, looking for monkeys, and perhaps sighting a colorful kingfisher bird. We will only attempt five kilometers of this 20 km long lake and stop and have lunch at a floating restaurant. The rest of the afternoon is free to explore isolated nooks of this 430 m deep lake, or to swim in the stream-fed waters. In the late afternoon we'll start paddling back to our put out point as we end our active yet relaxing day.
Suited for all riders and great for families, our Pedal and Paddle Adventure tour takes you to a natural playground to explore and relax. We ride approximately 20 km on good quality roads with only small undulations. An air-con support vehicle will follow and provide water and fresh fruit. On the lake we will be followed by a boat and can use it to return in the afternoon if there are tired arms. There will be plenty of opportunities for taking photos and just taking in the wonderful scenery.
