On the first day, we ride Buffalo Solider trail to conditioning your body and mind to the terrain and climate in Chiang Mai.

Ride through some of the most stunning scenery of Thai highland jungle, experience the culture of Hmong Tribe in their village and stop for their fresh Arabica coffee that grew up there, while overlooking the remarkable natural landscape. The variety of trails allows for moderate to more experienced riders to challenge themselves with punchy hill climbs and blasting down in fast and flowy trails with just the right amount of technical for a fun ride through local tribe’s agriculture plantation. Enjoy the testy dinner and spend the night at the cozy local accommodation.

Then the downhill section begins with the local’s trading route, along the way you will be immersed with 360 degrees view. Lunch break at the Hill Tribe’s tea plantation. Then the ride continues down an adventurous downhill trail through thick bamboo forest and Hmong Tribe village. The ride will end with a relaxing bamboo raft floating along Mae Tang river.

The dinner will be served with a test of Thai food to spice you up for the next day adventure. Body massage could be arranged at an extra cost.

Day 3 Fulfill the thirst of riding on Chaing Dao’s best trail

Second day begins with a refreshing atmosphere surrounded by mountains. The ride will start on a double track trading path the villagers use to travel to their highland farms and a chance to test their fruit along the way to Doi Luang Chiang Dao Sightseeing Spot. Challenge yourself with the rough but fun trail in the middle of a thick forest. Stop for a lunch break on an old wooden bridge along the old smuggling route. Ride up and down a slippery loose rock garden with steep drop on the side of the trail until we reach a flat double track through the farmlands of Akha. Finish the ride with our refreshment and dinner at a famous local restaurant before driving back to the city.
