Description

Five kilometers south of modern day Chiang Mai on the banks of the scenic Ping river lies the historic ruins of Wiang Khum Kham, the first Mon settlement dating back to the 11th century. Constructed as part of the Haripunchai kingdom this satellite town was ruined by floods in the 18th century but visible architecture remains and this is the perfect place for the start of our ride.

On route to our destination of Lamphun and the Haripunchai district we ride through quiet country roads and farmlands and experience the Lanna way of life. Our ride takes us further into abundant orchards, rich farmlands with a plethora of seasonal fruit and vegetable crops including longans, lychee, mango, bananas, guavas and coconuts, jackfruit, durian and dragon fruit, the list goes on. As we pass through small rural villages and crisscrossing the tranquil Ping river we encounter smiling faces and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and stop often to sample the local delights on offer at road-side stalls and markets.

We enjoy cycling around the ancient city walls of beautiful Lamphun. This district was originally ruled by legendary Mon queen Chama Thewi and precedes Chiang Mai by 7 centuries. Its most famous landmark is one of the oldest and holiest stupas in Thailand and built in 1044.

For lunch we enjoy a tasty, healthy lunch of delicious Lanna cuisine at a riverside restaurant and an opportunity to explore more of Lamphun's lively markets.

This is a very gentle 35-km ride along peaceful country back roads and suitable for anyone that can ride a bike. We ride as a group with experienced cycle guides setting a gentle pace and stop often to visit points of interest and allow everyone to catch up.
