What you'll do

I will take you on a day trip through the beautiful rain forest of Doi Suthep - Pui National Park covering the mountains around Chiang Mai. We will start at Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, the famous buddha temple overlooking the city. From this landmark we will make our way up to a Hmong village called "Khun Chang Khian" where we will rest our legs and have lunch. After lunch we will continue our hike and enjoy beautiful views over the mountains at "Doi Hua Moo" view point (the pigtail hill top). From there we shall wander along a bird watching trail to finish the hike. We will hike 15 km with approximately 1000 m of elevation.

Hello!! My name is Chani. I’m a chemical engineer by education and I am holding a master degree in Industrial Engineering, but I have decided to dedicate my life to being a tour guide as I found out that I am someone who wants to be independent and out in nature, by actively going cycling and hiking. My secret passion is traveling the world. During and after my studies I have traveled to Asia, Europe, and New Zealand to improve my foreign language skills and to learn about other cultures. I realised that I very much enjoy meeting people from different countries and exploring the world together. My passion is enjoying every moment of my life, finding friendship, love and happiness with each day that passes.

In September 2019 I have been part of a documentary for Discovery Asia channel.

Chanika was wonderful and we had a great experience on the adventure hike with her in the mountains above Chiang Mai. She is passionate about nature and easily connects with guests. Chanika picked us up from the hotel on a typical local open air covered truck. We drove about 30 minutes up the mountain. The hike starts from Wat Phra Dat Doi Suthep, which was beautiful, and something on our to do list already. We then went through the jungle to a local village passing streams, fallen trees, and strawberry fields. We ended up with lunch at a local cafe in the village before being driven down again to our hotel. The hike requires relatively good level of physical fitness. While not strenuous, it is more than 10K of trekking in the mountain, which takes you up to 1,400m above sea level. If you are ok with getting dirty and breaking a sweat, and enjoy the outdoors, this is definitely a recommended experience in Chiang Mai. Chanika will make sure you have a great time.

총 18km에 달하는 산행코스입니다. 트레킹이라고 생각하면 큰 오산, 제대로 산행 준비하지 않으면 낙오하기 십상이니 참고들 하시기를. 산길은 꽤나 험한 편이네요

Our trek with Chani was a wonderful way to see the mountainside of Chiang Mai! She was very welcoming and engaging, sharing stories with us along the hike. Chani is a very experienced hiker, and knew the trail well. There was some haze, so would recommend doing the hike earlier in the year - but still had an enjoyable time with Chani!

I truly believe that there is nobody as passionate about taking people into the Chiang Mai mountains than Chanika. Either by foot or by bike. Even though we only spends short period of time we really got to know each other. I can advice hanging out with her and going on hikes to everybody!
