All Mountain

Very Difficult

Level 3/5

A scenic mountain bike tour in Chiang Mai which takes you through 16.5km of changing landscape. Ride the fast and flowy trails with some technical features such as berms, jumps and drops. The nature along the route is simply breathtaking, from the hillsides dotted with lychee and coffee plantations, to the secluded waterfall which is rarely visited.  The tour includes a stop at a hilltop Hmong village where you can enjoy a coffee and a chat with the friendly villagers.

Along the trail you will experience sections of singletrack as well as dirt dual track as you make your way down the mountain before Huay Tung Tao lake comes into view, the local’s favorite hanging out spot with Doi Suthep Pui as the background.  Once at the lake you can enjoy a refreshing coconut and some snacks before heading back to the city.   A truly epic mountain bike tour in Chiang Mai and a Tourism Authority of Thailand winner!

What Can I Expect?
Expect steep descents and ascents in places so you need to be a competent rider with a good level of fitness.  Riding time will be around 3 hours depending on group size and fitness level.
