Bikes, Paddies & Lakes

2 Days

We pick you up at the hotel and travel by car to a small village outside Chiang Mai where our bikes are waiting for us. We cycle through villages where time seems to be standing still. We stop at a local school and see the farmers working in rice paddies. Then our road seems to descend into a lake and pops out again on the other side. In 1989 the government decided to submerge this formerly populated valley in order to create a water supply for the entire Doi Saket valley. We put our bikes on a boat that takes us to the other side, floating above the sunken villages. At the other side we find ourselves in a forested area. Time for a picnic lunch. Through a rolling landscape we reach the Mae Ngat Dam at the end of the afternoon where we take a long tail boat which takes us in half an hour to the center of the giant lake. We will overnight on floating bungalows. You can spend the evening relaxing, swimming, canoeing or fishing. Distance today 50 kilometers.
After a delicious breakfast we take the boat back to the shore and get back on the bike. We ride through a nice area towards the Mae Taeng where we have lunch. Bamboo rafts are awaiting us here. We descend the river in a relaxing pace while enjoying the natural surroundings. For last stretch, we load our bikes onto the car and drive back to Chiang Mai. Distance today 45 kilometers.
