What to expect

5 day Thailand Multi-Activity Adventure Holiday Itinerary:

Day 1 - Drive to countryside hotel. Cycling discovery
Pick-up from your Chiang Mai hotel. Drive to Mae Taeng valley. Cycling day (20 to 40km) in the valley. We will ride our bikes on a loop in the valley. The route is decided on the spot according to the participant's abilities. The valley is mostly all flat. There are two loops to choose from, or for the seasoned cyclists, you can do both loops. Tonight you can enjoy a Thai dinner and overnight stay at the hotel.

Day 2 - Overnight trek to the Mae Taeng highlands
Breakfast and trek preparation. Your guide will give you all the necessary information regarding the next two days. Mid-morning trekking to the Mae Taeng highlands (4 to 5 hours hiking). Overnight homestay. This trek is fairly strenuous, mostly ascending to the highlands. 900 meters D+. You’ll notice the change in flora. A rest stop is made at a hill village, perhaps having a local coffee or tea. Continue through jungle, forest and tea plantations, sometimes offering scenic views of the valley below.
Tonight we’ll spend the night at a basic but typical mountain homestay. Dinner prepared by your host.

Day 3 - Trek, village and waterfall fun
After a breakfast with freshly brewed local coffee, we start to trek ascending in the forest. Then walk on the mountain ridges (4 hours). Lunch at a local restaurant near the tea plantation.

Then we transfer to a well known local restaurant near the caves for a great lunch. (Lunch is not included, and you can order from the menu). After lunch, you’ll explore and discover the Chiangdao caves and Buddhist sanctuary, assisted by a local guide with a special gas lamp. 2 caverns can be explored for the more adventurous.
