Hilly adventure on paved roads
This half day tour is rated moderate (**), because it’s cycling in hilly areas, mainly on paved roads. This means that despite the electric bicycle at some hills still extra effort is required to keep your electric bike going. The distance of this adventure is about 40 km and it lasts about 3,5-4 hours.
If you just want to have a short ride there is our ‘Wake-up call on fully paved roads’, which is the shorter version. The distance of this adventure is about 25-30 km and it lasts about 2 hours.
Our guide brings you from our location in Nam Phrae to Wat Doi Tham.
From Wat Doi Tham we continue to an old train, even when we have to cycle in the rain 😉
After the train stop we go on till the beautiful rice and soy fields near Ban Pong, with the hills in the background.
Wat Ban Pong is worth a visit, even if you have seen many temples already.
On the way to Wat Umong we pass several crematoriums, sometimes we make a stop, sometimes we witness a funeral.
Visiting Wat Umong, a very different temple outside Chiang Mai.
On the way back we pass Wat Doi Kham, Royal Flora and Night Safari.
A last stop at Wat Ton Kwen before we return to the starting point for your well deserved lunch.
Of course there is much more to see and tell, but that is for our guides to do. If you want it all, come and get it by booking this adventure!
