Please Note: This trip is NOT designed for novice motorcycle riders, it's for riders with good riding skills but with little or no off road riding skills. It includes off road tuition along the route.
Day 1 Depart for Hill Tribe LodgeLeave around 11:00am Total Distance around 150 kilometers
After a safety briefing we depart out of the city to a unique hill tribe lodge high in the mountains where our hosts for the evening are the warm and friendly Karen hill Tribe. Todays ride offers a chance to get used to the bikes and the handling of a dirt bike and includes tight, twisty roads and easy off road to warm you up. During the day we will introduce you to a few situations to begin learning the techniques required for off road riding. Tonights accommodation is totally unique in comfortable rooms with drinks around a blazing fire under the stars.
Day 2 Depart for Doi Chang Dao Via PaiLeave around 10:00am total distance around 170 kilometers
Great days ride today and about time to start putting the few skills you learned yesterday into practice. Todays ride begins on very chopped up black top before leading onto some dirt trails not too difficult but there are enough places through the ride to keep you on you alert, as with yesterday we will put you into a few situations to learn some extra riding skills such as river crossings and uphill switchback techniques. The evening spent in a delightful resort offering absolutely superb Thai cuisine and if we make arrive within good time maybe a quick dip in the pool with a few beers before dinner.
Day 3 Return to Chiang MaiLeave around 10:00 am Distance 120 kilomters
Quite a bit of road riding today to make our way back into the city but with a slight detour over the odd mountain or two and some slighty tougher off road challenges bringing us directly back into the center of Chiang Mai.
Recommendations and notes.
Rated as suitable for "Beginners" but this means Beginners as in new to off road riding not Novice bikers therefore you should have good on road riding skills before you come with us. It is a short budget tour and offers a chance to experience off road riding in another country at a very reasonable price. You are not likely to become a champion dirt rider after a tour as short as this but it should offer you a good basis to further your riding skills. Accommodation is great on this tour and you will also experience some of the best parts of Northern Thailand on and off the bikes.
This is a basic budget tour tailored for people that may already be in Chiang Mai so it is assumed you will already have accommodation before and after the tour. If not we can arrange this for you at a reasonable cost close to our regular starting point in the city.
