What you'll do

Start your day with a sacred journey! We’ll walk in the same trail where monks and Buddhists did decades ago and it shows how tough and dedicated they are passing 2 temples Wat Pha Lat (왓파랏) and Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep (왓 프라탓 도이수텝) the majestic temple that contains Buddha relics. Don’t worry about walking down as a transportation will be provided. 5:30 AM meet me at the foothill. The easy way is using a Grab Car or I can help arrange transportation. The trail split into 2 parts. The first, started in the dark and it is a 35 mins pleasant walk. We may meet a monk who walks down from their monastery. Then, we’ll reach a first temple Wat Pha Lat a beautiful hidden gem in the middle of the forest. It’s a time for a break, learning a Buddhism story and enjoy a serene sunrise. After that, a real hike begins! Second part is a much more challenge, 55 mins hike mostly uphill. We'll see a small waterfall and a different personal side of Chiang Mai. At the end of the trail 1000m height above sea level, We'll reach the main road near Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep temple. There will be free time for you to explore the area on your own. I'll stay outside and arrange transportation to get us down and drop you at Nimman Rd. or CMU. Please Note: During May-Sep, it's a raining season so you may not see the sunrise as it cloudy but the forest unleash another beautiful mist scenery.

Your hosts

"The mountain are calling" I and my wife move back to Chiang Mai. When I was young, I study at Bangkok Christian College and ask myself which religion am I will follow. Finally, I decided to become a monk for periods of time. I also love hiking and visit the Himalayas area like Nepal, Leh, Sikkim, India including places of pilgrimage and Sri Lanka that expanded my view of Buddhism. This experience is great for everyone who is looking for an outdoorsy activity in the city area and the history behind the trail. We are so excited to meet you, let's walk together!
