ITINERARY

DAY 1

DSC00421Meet early in Chiang Rai and transfer 2 hours northwest to Doi Mae Salong and the start of our adventure. After a stop at spectacular Wat Doi Mae Salong we head up and into the hills in the direction of the Burmese border. We start our ride on single track and then exposed hillsides with great trails and amazing views. We have a bit of climbing to do and then as we get a view from a hilltop over Burma we turn and start our descent on ever-changing flowing tracks that go on for miles and miles. Finishing today with awesome mixed surface trails until we meet our support vehicles, enjoy a late lunch and then transfer to our resort in Thaton.

DAY 2

Downhill day, 2 runs. After a hearty breakfast we transfer to just below the summit of Doi Pa Hom Pok mountain, Thailand’s second highest peak.. We hike up to the summit for magical panoramic views and then we walk down to our bikes and at around 2000m elevation depart on our day’s ride on awesome barely used trails. Fantastic views and long flowing downhills, some technical sections and a few more ups to keep the heart pumping and the lungs burning. Think single track, crossing clear, icy streams and magical views! We transfer back to the top of the hill for a nice lunch and then we enjoy another run on this awesome track. Finally we return to our hotel, clean up, check out and enjoying a relaxing scenic sunset drive with magnificent views to our exclusive mountain retreat.

 

DAY 3

This ride is epic and ever changing. We transfer over the summit of our secret peak and ride amazing remote trails to lunch at a beautiful waterfall and then after lunch and a rest we have another little transfer to the top of the hill for our final awesome single track ride to finish a great three day all mountain adventure.
