Day 1

Arrive in Chiang Mai with airport pickup.

Day 2

We circumvent Doi Suthep through peaceful and gentle climb to Samoeng district. The climbs continue in the afternoon as we ride up to 1,140 m before roll downhill to Mae Rim.

Day 3

We will be facing tough and long ascents as we leave Mae Rim for the Pai. Our resort is located near the Night Market, ideal for an evening stroll and a fantastic opportunity to sample exotic fruits and local foods.

Day 4

Our first climb begins, 10 km in. We enjoy a scenic break at a 1,443 m elevation before descending through mountain villages on our way to Mae Hong Son.

Day 5

Today is an easier day in terms of kilometres ridden but there are still some hills to get over. We are now in hill tribe country, so close to the border with Burma you will no doubt notice a Burmese influence.

Day 6

We descend more than we ascend, but there is still enough climbing to test those legs.

Day 7

Our toughest day awaits. A brutal start with a 20-km climb of 860 m up to the top of the pass at 1,210 m (4,030 ft.), crossing through beautiful mountains and the jungle landscapes.

Day 8

We climb to the very top of Thailand! From Mae Cham, the ascent starts immediately, and for the first 15 km, we climb 870 m. The final 10 km will be the true test though, taking us to the "Summit of Thailand" or Doi Inthanon, at 2,565 m.

Day 9

Enjoy a free morning taking in Chiang Mai or extend your stay in Thailand.
