Thrilling trails, thrilling views. One of the best mountain bike tours in Chiang Mai for experienced riders who want to get off the beaten track.
Full Day / 8 hr.
If you’re an experienced mountain biker and looking for a memorable experience then this mountain bike tour in Chiang Mai is perfect! Thriller start’s with a visit to the largest Hmong village in Suthep – Pui national park before several kilometers of winding single track ending with a tough but rewarding climb to the ridge of Doi Pa Klong – the 2nd highest point in the national park and a seldom visited ridge with incredible views. Take in the scenery and enjoy a snack before you start the amazing descent through thick rainforest along a mountain ridge which is seldom visited so expect plenty of roots, ruts, fallen branches and overgrown jungle.
The forest eventually opens out into farmland and the ride continues along dirt dual track and sections of single track passing through lychee farms, mango plantations and more forest before eventually finishing the ride at the base of the mountain.
We will take you for a delicious Thai lunch with expansive views of the mountain you just conquered before heading back to the city to conclude the tour.
What to Expect
This mountain bike tour is perfect for those wanting a wide variety of trails from single track to dual track, dirt and gravel sections with a good mix of ascents and descents. The trails are overgrown in places and not maintained so you will need to be a capable rider with experience on this type of terrain. The tour is recommended for those looking for a real adventure deep in the national park.

Review of: Thriller Trail Mountain Biking Tour from Chiang Mai Probably the best thing I did in Chiang Mai. An amazing way to see untouched countryside and have fun at the same time. Ride had some pretty technical climbs and fun, fast descents. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Couldnt have asked for better.
"Thrilling" experience! Definitely a highlight of our trip!
We looked around at several other bike tour companies in Chiang Mai and found Trail Head to have the highest quality of bicycles, very friendly and knowledgable service. From the moment we walked into the store, we had a feeling of a professional business. From their website, their logo, merchandise and staff, it was top notch.
We chose our ride, our day and registered...the ride was set. Our ride was just my husband and I and our guide. The ride day started with Trail Head SUV picking us up from our hotel, bringing us back to the shop to fit us for equipment (helmet, arm and leg pads, backpack with water and packed lunch). After we were organized, we headed up the mountain Doi Suthep, past the temple and the Kings Palace. It was a great tour just driving up past these attractions. When at the top, we organized ourselves, got ready and off we went. Our excellent guide, Lick, started us on a little trail to familiarize us with the different terrain, then we started on the actual trail down. The trail ended up being exactly what we were looking for, as described in their description on the website.
On the trail we meandered through a market, a beautiful garden of a native village, some farmers fields and up to a very scenic viewpoint for lunch. It had monsooned the night before, so the trails were very muddy and rutted, but so much fun and we got really mucky and dirty! So awesome!! After a very exhilarating, exciting 26 km cross country ride, we ended at a little roadside restaurant on a hillside and had dinner while waiting for our SUV ride home. We were then driven back to our hotel. We were two very happy, satisfied riders.
Thanks for a great experience!
