Book Tour and Activities on the Go!
About the Activity:- Cycle from Chiang Mai’s city center up and over forested foothills to the valley beyond. This bike ride is for those who like a little challenge with a few small hills and one fairly steep, but short. Ride through the forest and through country fields looping back partially along the same route to finish at Grasshopper’s Chiang Mai office.
Timings: 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM
Gather at the Meeting Point : Meet near Sripoom Corner at 9:45 am. The tour will depart at 10:00 am sharp. After a quick bike fitting and briefing the bike tour is off.
Wat Umong: Biking out from Chiang Mai’s old city and passing through the campus of the University of Chiang Mai to start the ascent up into the foothills of Doi Suthep, the first stop is at the charming forest temple and meditation retreat of Wat Umong. Parking the bikes we take a stroll through the temple's tunnels.
Cycling Doi Gom : Bike over small hills and back lanes to eventually start the steep climb up Doi Gom. While the climb may be steep it is not long. You are welcome to walk your bike up to summit if wish. Following a rest in the forest at the top of Doi Gom we start the rapid descent on a winding forest lined road to valley of Sameong.
Wat Ban Pong : Our first stop in the valley is at the temple of Ban Pong. This is a lovely Lanna style temple founded centuries ago on the ancient caravan routes.
The Bee Keeping Training Center: Riding our bikes through rice paddies and forested hills to eventually arrive at a Beekeeping Training Center. At the center you will be able to see and learn about different types of native and domestic bees and all of the different products these hard little workers produce.
The Loop Back : On the way back we will pass the botanical gardens and Doi Kham before joining the same route that we biked earlier in the day. Returning the Grasshopper Shop via the campus of Chiang Mai University.
