3-Hour Hike round trip Monk Trail to Wat Doi Suthep from Chiang Mai
This traditional, three-hour, 12 km round trip Trek to Doi Suthep's leading Temple at 1100 m elevation is a must do while in Chiang Mai.
This trip comes now with an option to cycle back down to the city.
We climb to Wat Suthep past Wat Pa Lat of Doi Pui National Park on the traditional monk Trail. Our Trail head is at 400m elevation above Chiang Mai Zoo
This well worn trail, shaded by large trees takes you straight up the mountain and the cool air greets you just above the city, The first 30 minute segment to Wat Pa lat is a gentle incline, a great starter walk.
The 2nd part we tackle steep "step like" terrain using tree roots to ground our self.
This is the time where we appreciate our adjustable hiking sticks. At a leisurely pace we reach Wat Suthep after a total of 2 hrs hiking to .1100 m elevation from 400m.
Here you are free to experience the early day temple life, visit the famous Wat Suthep built in 1383, and incredible valley views at your leisure time. After a light snack brunch at altitude we start our 700 meter descent climbing relaxed down to Chiang mai. If you chose the cycling down to chiang mai option you are gliding down in 20 minutes to Chiang Mai.
