The temple here is famous for its underground tunnels and large chedi, there is also a field containing broken Buddha statues, the twilight hours is definitely the best time to visit this atmospheric temple. Following Wat Umong the tour will proceed to Chiang Mai's most famous temple and without a doubt the evening time is definitely one of the best times to visit as the tourists crowds which do visit this temple will have mostly departed for the day. You will enjoy the very unique views of Chiang Mai at Night and will see the city lit up below you!!

Day 2
On day two you will travel to Doi Inthanon National Park from Chiang Mai you will get to visit some of the popular sites that the park has to offer as well as getting off the main tourist trail for a two hour trek around the Pa Dok Siew Nature Trail.

On turning into the park the road will start to climb towards Thailand’s highest peak. On the route up the mountain our first stop will be at Siritharn waterfall, the trip will them proceed further up the mountain to the king and queen pagodas.

After Thailand’s highest peak we will drop by at the Hmong hill tribe market and then have lunch. After lunch it will be time for our walk which will take us deeper into the park and away from the well visited tourist trail up the mountain. The walk will take around two hours and we will follow the beautiful Pa Dok Siew Nature Trail, the trail will take you through rice paddies and forest and you will get to enjoy some unique views of the park which many visitors miss. At the end of the walk it will be time to board the transport again for the trip back down the mountain,on the way down we will stop by at one of Inthanon’s most spectacular waterfalls, Wachiritharn before heading back to Chiang Mai where you will be transferred to your Chiang Mai hotel.
