At 8am, we pick you up at your hotel and transfer out of Chiang Mai to the beautiful Huey Tueng Tao Lake – a favorite place where locals go fishing and picnicking. From here, we cycle on quiet country roads by fertile forests, beautiful fruit orchards and lush plantations. Watch out for elephants, they have right of way! Our ride continues up through the narrow valley of the Mae Sa River. On our route, we’ll see the river tumble down numerous cascades. In the higher part of the valley, we also pass orchid farms and other flower fields that are grown for the Chiang Mai market, as well as fields of vegetables cultivated by the Hmong. We’ll take plenty of refreshment breaks during our climbs and stop for lunch at the village of Samoeng. This area was first settlement of the Lanna people, who were escaping from a Burmese conquer in the 18th century. The altitude of 1100m will mean it’s a bit cooler here and a perfect place for lunch.
As we come around the mountain, we have one tough rise, but once over the top it’s downhill to the fertile foothills south of Chiang Mai. We head back towards city following the ancient trade path along the Ping River. We’ll stop for a last break at the ruin of Wiang Khum Kham – the site of a buried city which was the first settled area in the Chiang Mai region, and then back into town. Finally we drive you back to your hotel. End trip around 5pm.
