Chiang Mai To Chiang Rai

4 Days Easy-Moderate Reviews

Ride on trails and back roads that have little traffic through the spectacular limestone mountains of Chiang Dao and to the scenic village of Mae Salak, straddling the Mae Kok River. Start cycling from Bua Thong waterfall through the forest on a trail cut by elephants. The next day visit the Chiang Dao caves before riding among soaring limestone cliffs on a mixture of dirt paths cut by local hill tribes. The third morning we ride from a temple retreat and later follow the Mae Kok river to the town of Mae Salak. The last day we ride an off road trail and then change vehicles to a boat as we hitch a ride on a long-tail boat. You can also spend some time on an elephant before we get back on the bikes and head to Chiang Rai.

I did this 4D3N tour in January 2011 with a friend; surprisingly it was only 2 of us and no other travellers were needed for the tour to depart. We still had a great local guide and driver on the support van, all to ourselves.

The tour is not exactly point-to-point, i.e. get on a bike in Chiang Mai and under your own power get to Chiang Rai. Instead each morning, the support van took us to a starting point, we rode half a day or so, and at the end got picked up by the van again to the accommodation. The hotels, whilst all remote, were all high quality and beat my expectations.

The support van was always nearby and waiting for us at rest stops, with cut fruits and mini foldout table and chairs. This tour is a great way to see the country side in a very relaxed pace. If you are an experienced cyclist, the tour may be too easy but they seem to be able to cater for different skill levels. There were these Belgian cyclists doing a parallel tour who seem to have done it point-to-point and even asked for extra distance to make it a whole day.
