Tour with Hike in Kiew Mae Pan Natural Trail from Chiang Mai
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 9 hours
The tour offers a great experience. It takes about 2 hours from Chiang Mai to the top of Doi Inthanon. There we spent about 20-30 minutes in the short (300-400m) trail through the jungle and the small museum. Then we visited the pagodas of the former king and queen, which offer a nice view and a beautiful garden. Then we stopped for 15 minutes at a market (there are better markets in the city though). After that we had a very good Thai lunch at a restaurant in a village of local people and then visited the village with bamboo houses. Finally we went to the waterfall which I believe is the nicest part of the tour where we spent about half an hour only. I wish we could have stayed a bit longer there.
The trip overall was great. Unfortunately we went during the time that the weather was not the best. It was raining, foggy, and windy which made it difficult to fully take in the views (at least the part that we could see). Our guide Mr. M was wonderful. He was very informative and he gave the history of the different destinations we went to.
Great day! John was a Knowledgeable and fun guide who made sure we had a good experience. Loved the variety of pagodas, rice terraces, nature, waterfall, hill tribe. Highly recommend
Very good organised - include lunch - coffee - market : all very well. Compared to a fellow traveller who booked cheaper trip but got less services.
I really enjoyed this trip, our tour guide was very informative. My favorite part was the water fall. It was utterly stunning.
