Itinerary

Day 1

We meet in the afternoon in Chiang Rai for a warm-up ride through rice paddy fields along the Mae Lao River to the distinctive White Temple created by a local artist. Then head back to the hotel to refresh for an outing to the night bazaar and dinner.

Day 2

Climbing the hills of Wawee, we have a nice 40 km flat stretch to warm up before the serious stuff. Enjoying panoramic views, we take a fast 10-km descent and ride on quiet roads to Thaton.

Day 3

We won't be pedalling very hard until KM 25. Then it's a climb, but we only gain about 350 m over 10 km. We ride past farmers working their fields and be greeted by children and possibly a water buffalo or two.

Day 4

It's a semi rest day with a quiet morning flat ride along the Mekong River. We arrive Chiang Khong in time for you to relax on your balcony, visit the local market, or wander through the bicycle museum.

Day 5

Riding out of Chiang Khong we head south to Pu Chi Fah for a stunning viewpoint. After a 40-km warm-up, we ascend over 2,000 m, finishing atop an amazing cliff formation like no other in the region.

Day 6

We start with an exhilarating descent down the mountain and then the ride flattens out as we cycle through a wide and fertile valley. We end our ride in Phayao Lake with time to chill in this laid-back town.

Day 7

We ride around the lake and ascend over into the next valley by crossing a mountain range. As the light turns golden we'll ride through the foothills of the forested mountains and into the paddy fields.

Day 8

Today's ride ends with a waterfall, but we have our work cut out for us! We'll be cycling up to 1,400 m. The climbs will be tough, but they won't be unrelenting.

Day 9

Loop around Doi Suthep, the mountain overlooking this ancient city, and head for lunch at Samoeng. Riding around the mountain, we have one tough rise before enjoying a swift downhill.

Day 10

Relax and rest after nine days of great riding.
