Hiking with the Chiang Mai Hiking Club

On the day we visited, there was a solid group of about 40 local Thais and foreign expats living in Chiang Mai excited to head by songthaew up to the top of Doi Pui for spectacular views and a hike down the ridge to a Hmong village, ending at Doi Suthep Temple.

We had a lovely time on our hike with the Chiang Mai Hiking Club!  We met some great people.  The hike met at the appointed location and left at the appointed time, giving the impression of an organized and well run group.

This was a budget friendly way to see some beautiful scenery that we wouldn’t have seen otherwise.  It turned out to be one of the most memorable parts of our trip!

The Chiang Mai Hiking Club organizes a number of hikes to different locations though out the month, all of which are posted on their website.  If you like hiking and beautiful scenery and your visit to Chiang Mai corresponds with a hike that interests you, I recommend that you check it out.

  1. I love hiking and Thailand has some great trails! I think Mae Sariang (not far from Chiang Mai) offers great hiking activities. There are beautiful landscapes and hill tribes to visit. And it’s almost unknown by most foreign visitors.
    Keep it up!

    • Thanks for the tip! When we get back to Thailand (which might be a few years with two little kids in tow) we will definitely add that to our list! It is always nice to have a less touristy suggestion.
