D2 / Chiang Mai - Chiang Dao - 160 Km

The adventure begins heading north through Chiang Mai’s gardens, going up the banks of Ping river. You perceive the first ricefields, then go up in altitude to cross the luxuriant massif which separates you from the Mae Taeng valley. You arrive at the end of the day in Chiang Dao, a small hamlet nested at the foothills of an impressive mountain.

D3 / Chiang Dao - Tha Ton - 200 Km 

Continue up north towards the Burmese border through changing landscapes, increasingly wild. The road will propel you without any transition towards Doi Angkhang, almost at 2,000m/6,561ft of altitude. After a traditional meal in the village of Ban Luang, you go down into the great plain of Fang and finish this stage in the small town of Thaton.

D4 / Tha Ton – Mae Sai - 140 Km

The adventure continues up north, closer to the Burmese border, progressing on small, breathtaking mountain roads. After crossing the plain of Fang, we climb up to Doi Mae Salong known for its Chinese mountain village Santikhiri. In the botanical garden of Mae Fah Luang, coffee and tea crops replace the vibrant poppy colors. Small secondary roads crisscrossing the border of the Burmese border lead us to Mae Sai.

Still in the north of Chiang Rai province, you head now for the Mekong. After 30km you find yourself at the heart of the "Golden Triangle", home to three borders - Thailand, Laos and Burma. Next you ride due south along a sublime stretch of road, running parallel to the Laos border. You stick mainly to the high ridges with their magnificent panoramic views.

The riders' opinions

stephen buskell
Vintage Rides SrI Lanka

“I was born in Sri Lanka but I was taken to parts I didn't know existed. Excellent knowledge of which routes to take to avoid the sometimes hellish traffic. The bikes were great fun : this is despite me being 125 kilos on a 350 - impressed ! They seem to be constantly reviewing their hotels which can only mean a better experience I would recommend this company to my biking friends”

Wonderful experience with great company

“My group of 12 friends had a wonderful experience riding in the Himalayas with Vintage Rides. From the fantastic Pierrey our tour guide to the work done by the backroom staff to ensure this unique experience went without a hitch, this a very experienced and highly recommended company to put your trust in for such a journey. Will definitely use them again at some time in the future - perhaps Mongolia.”

Bern Lazareff
Great experience in the Himalayas, …

“Great experience in the Himalayas, thanks to our very professional guide, Bernard, who shared his extensive knowledge of the local culture, showed tremendous patience and understanding; although some riders were definitely not quite on the level, he managed to include them without hampering the group's progress, bravo! Thanks to his deep sense of humor and many anecdotes, the evenings also were a delight, and we felt welcome when meeting his many friends. Can't wait to do another tour with our special guide.”
