Pick-up from Your Hotel in Chiang Mai
Make your way up to the top of the Doi Inthanon from the mid-point. The mountain was designated as one of the original 14 national parks in Thailand. Stop at the local market to pick up some snacks such as black berries and dried fruits grown on the slopes of the mountain itself.
Ride to the Top
After gaining altitude fast, stop again for some rest and get a glimpse of the panoramic view of the mountain. Tackle the steepest pathways of the mountain and ride your bike to the summit of Inthanon.
Two Chedis on the Summit
Have the chance to visit the two beautiful adjacent chedis on the main road to the summit, the Naphamethinidon and the Naphaphonphumisiri. The temples were built to honor the 60th birthday of King Bhumibol Adulyadej in 1987, and 60th birthday of Queen Sirikit in 1992, respectively.
Smoothest Descent in Thailand
Upon arrival at the roof of the mountain, take a victory photo or two, and enjoy a nice cup of coffee. Afterwards, embark on the smoothest descent via good quality tarmac roads towards Wachirathan Falls.
Delight in Northern Thai Dishes
Savor a hearty lunch of local Northern Thai cuisine while marveling at the spectacular view of Wachirathan Falls.
Descend the Mountain
After lunch, continue downhill at a relaxed pace to reach the base of Doi Inthanon. Then, pack up and return to Chiang Mai.
Drop-off in Your Hotel in Chiang Mai
Ride as high as you can in Thailand when taking on this challenging cycle of 20 kilometers and some 2000 meters of ascent up to the top of the country's tallest mountain - Doi Inthanon. Then comes the reward of the longest and smoothest descent in Thailand!
Designated in 1954 as one of the original 14 national parks of Thailand, Doi Inthanon spreads from the lowlands at 800 m altitude up to the peak at 2565 m, thus covering many climatic and ecological zones for you to pass through on your way up.
With fresh air and flora unique to this region of Thailand we start our climb up from the mid-point. We stop on the way at a local market to pick up some snacks such as black berries and dried fruits grown only on the slopes of Doi Inthanon. We gain altitude fast and stop again to rest at a scenic view point like no other. Then we tackle the steepest part of the mountain and climb into the clouds to visit the most beautiful chedis and gardens dedicated to the the King and Queen of Thailand. Our last 5 kilometers are an easy incline along a ridge until we reach the roof of Thailand and the summit of Inthanon.
Time for a victory photo or two, a nice coffee in the cool air and then we enjoy a well deserved roll back down the mountain to lunch at a beautiful waterfall.
After lunch we continue downhill at a relaxed pace to the base of the mountain. We then pack up and return to Chiang Mai with memories and an achievement of a select few adventurous souls.
We ride approximately 20 kilometers on the way up and can roll down 40 kilometers on good quality tarmac roads. There will be plenty of opportunities for taking photos and just taking in the wonderful scenery. A support vehicle follows if you tire and need a lift to the top.
