D2 / Chiang Mai - Chiang Dao - 68 miles

The adventure begins heading north through Chiang Mai’s vegetable patches alongside Ping river. We encounter our first paddies on a quiet winding road, then gain altitude and cross the lush massif, which separates us from the Mae Taeng valley. At the end of the day, we arrive in Chiang Dao, a small hamlet set at the foothills of an impressive mountain.

D3 / Chiang Dao - Tha Ton - 81 miles

In the morning, we come across our first karst cliffs of the tour, emerging from a dense forest, peppered with majestic teaks. We continue north towards the Burmese border through changing landscapes that become increasingly wild. The road propels us towards Doi Angkhang, which stands at almost 2,000 m altitude. After a traditional meal in the village of Ban Luang, we head back down into Fang’s vast plains.

“Great team offering a wide choice of rides. I selected northern Thailand, the golden triangle route. Well planned ride on good quality bike's, interesting and unique accommodation, well priced and well organised. No hesitation in recommending them and I am planning another trip for 2018 Neil UK”

T Ainslie
Golden Triangle January 2018

“Very good initial contact. Video conference with Denise made the experience more personal, from the start. Good to have the update emails counting down to departure , with handy hints about what to prepare for the trip. Met at Chang Mai airport and installed in the hotel before joining the group in a restaurant . The trip was well organised with lunch and accommodation stops timed for just the right time of the day. Shad our guide did a really good job of leading a group of 5 bikes, ensuring all riding habits were catered for and controlled when necessary! Having a back up van to carry luggage and a mechanic was brilliant leaving us to ride with unencumbered bikes. This trip is more about riding tarmac /concrete roads of varying condition , than off road. All in all we all had some great experiences, during what was one of the most relaxing bike trips I have ever undertaken.”
