Just a short hop east of Chiang Mai we head away from the tourist trail and into fertile valleys that offer inspiring views and mountainous horizons not seen from the city.
After a short drive from the city we start our bicycle exploration of Sankampaeng and the beautiful, peaceful Lanna countryside. This one day 34-km ride takes us out to tranquil places where rice is grown and the Buddhist faith are what is important to Thai people.
We visit a market where the fresh produce is artfully displayed. Sampling the fruits in season will make sure you will not run out of energy throughout our picturesque day.
We'll pass by temples where we can stop and make an offering. We'll also pass locals at work in their trades and will see how tin and aluminum is hammered and furniture is made from hard mango wood.
Our ride will take us through open plains and for some variety we'll take short cuts through lush rice paddies as we head towards the forests and mountains that surround this area.
The country roads at the base of a mountain range will bring us to the Sankampaeng Hot Springs where, if you can stand the heat, we can have a dip in the naturalmineral springs that are said to be curative and rejuvenating. This is an original Thai experience.
This trip is suitable for all levels of riders and is an excellent trip for families, Tag along and baby seat are available.
