Doi Suthep Temple

 

 

DOI SUTHEP TEMPLE


If you intend to visit some temples in Chiang Mai then Doi Suthep should be at the top of your list. Situated on Doi Pui mountain overlooking the city of Chiang Mai. The road winds up from the city of Chiang Mai to the base of the temple where you can take the 306 steps which are lined each side with a naga balustrade. If you are not feeling energetic or not so steady on your feet then there is the option of the short ride on the funicular cable car. The present temple complex at Doi Suthep dates from the 16th Century, the center piece being the large Lanna style gold covered chedi. Doi Suthep on its own makes a very worthy visit but while here you can enjoy the cool air, and clouds allowing, the great views over the whole of Chiang Mai and to the mountains beyond

VISITING DOI SUTHEP

Visiting Doi Suthep from Chiang Mai
Doi Suthep is situated in the Doi Pui/Doi Suthep National Park on the mountain overlooking Chiang Mai. The temple can be reached by road which winds 18km up the mountain to the temples base.Tto see the temple you can either choose from an organized Doi Suthep tour which lasts 3-4 hours and usually takes in the White Hmong village on the mountain as well. If you want to make your own way there and do not have your own transport then you can charter a Songtaew (red pick up) Flag an empty one down in town and agree a price beforehand (usually around 500 Baht). The Songtaew will wait while you visit the temple. Alternatively take a shared songtaew, these are usually available out side Chiang Mai zoo and near to Sompet Market at the Northern end of the Eastern moat. For those feeling very energetic it is possible to hike up the mountain which can take in the nature, waterfalls and flora and fauna Doi Pui/Suthep National Park can offer.

FURTHER POINTS OF INTEREST

About two thirds of the way up to Doi Suthep there is a good viewpoint which affords great views of the city and beyond. This is worth a stop if views from the temple are obscured by clouds. Phu Ping Palace is also situated on the mountain a further 6 km beyond the temple. Continuing further up you will come to a junction where a turn off will take you to a White Hmong village this is the closest hill tribe village to Chiang Mai. A couple of attractive watrefalls are accessible from the road up to Doi Suthep and will involve a little walking to get there. If you follow the road up you will come to the top of Doi Pui moutain and following the road down the tarmac will eventually run out. Follow the dirt track for a km or so and you will come to a camp site. At the camp site there is a marked nature trail if you want to take a short walk through the forest. The dirt track continues past the camp site. You will need an off road motorbike or moutain bike if you want to continue from there.
