TOUR DESCRIPTION


Day 1
An early start will be required on day one if you want to catch the Saturday buffalo market at Sanpatong! we will depart Chiang Mai and if you are doing this tour on a Saturday we will make a stop at the weekly Sanpatong Buffalo Market. This is a once weekly market where buffaloes and a variety of other livestock are traded. Around this agricultural market a large local market springs up on this morning offering a whole host of local items and foodstuffs to the hungry market goers.

The tour will continue to Doi Inthanon National Park. You will first visit the spectacular Wachiritharn Waterfall and then onto the start of the Mae Klang Luang trail. This trail will get you well away from the main tourist route and allow you to see a very interesting cross section of this stunning national park. The trail will first follow a forested route down hill before the trail meets the river. You will spend some time following the river. The trail will pass Pa Dok Siew Waterfall where at the base if you want to cool off please feel free to take a dip in the cool waters. The trail will eventually open out into agricultural land which surrounds Mae Klang Luang Karen village. you will see coffee bushes and rice paddies. We will make a stop at a local coffee house where they roast, hand grind and prepare freshly brewed coffee form the hills surrounding the village.

It will then be time for lunch. Lunch will be take at a local Karen restaurant and then you will board the minibus to see some of the other popular sights Inthanon has to offer. You will see the two majestic king and queen pagodas at the top of the mountain and enjoy the views from this high vantage point. You will visit visit the highest part of Doi Inthanon which is also Thailand’s highest mountain and you will walk the Angkha Nature Trail (400m short walk) where you will see a unique variety of flora which only flourishes at this high altitude.

If you have not already seen enough waterfalls you can take the option to see Mae Ya which is Doi Inthanon’s biggest falls (However the part authorities does close this waterfall in the wet season months as a safety precaution against water surges after heavy rainfall)

Note: A good level of fitness will be required to complete the trek. The trek involves walking up and down steep paths and along jungle tracks. This trek will not be suitable for the elderly

Day 2
On day two ou will be picked up early to embark on this special one day tour to Chiang Rai. We will depart the city of Chiang Mai and head north over the mountains to Chiang Rai. On route we will take an early morning coffee break at Mae Kha Jan Hot Springs to take a break from the driving. The driving will continue for a further while as we approach our first main stop of the day, Elephant Valley Chiang Rai. On arrival at Elephant Valley you will be handed over into the hands of the knowledgeable staff at this special elephant sanctuary where you will be informed about the lives of elephants in Thailand and about the elephants residing at this small sanctuary. This sanctuary offers exceptionally high elephant welfare standards and you will be able to observe and spend time with these splendid animals in a very natural habitat. After The elephant sanctuary we will visit the now very famous Wat Rong Khun (White Temple) before proceeding to Chiang Rai to take our lunch by the Kok River. After lunch we will head out of town to visit Wat Rong Sear Tean (Blue Temple) and then on to Baan Dam (Black House museum). This will be our final stop of the day unless you want to take the option to visit the Long Neck village where you will see this amazing ethnic Karen group from Burma.
