January 5, 2018
Chiang Mai - also known as the Rose of the North. Rightly, because mountain biking in Chiang Mai is a real highlight. It begins with the access to the trails, most of which are well located on the almost 1,700 meter high Doi Pui are created. For Thai standards, the shuttle ride of just 20 minutes hardly worth mentioning. The shuttle battles fuming towards the summit while you enjoy the great view of the city. And then it starts: Maximum trail fun is in the way.The mountain bike highlight of Chiang Mai is this multi-hour Enduro Ride, which starts with a breathtaking view at the highest point of the mountain (which, however, you have to work out with a small climb). Afterwards, the trail leads you through coffee and banana plantations, past mystical temples, and with views that keep you breathless. Finally, the route spits you out at Huay Tung Tao Lake, the recreational lake of Chiang Mai with small bamboo huts right on the water and small restaurants serving delicious Thai food. Here you can collect yourself again from the shuttle driver or you meet a little further at the large parking lot (end point of this tour).Probably you will learn here at the latest, unfortunately, the little tormentors, which should give a little more attention in many parts of Asia, as at home: mosquitoes can transmit one or the other tropical disease here. The tiger mosquito, for example, is known as a transmitter of dengue fever. No need to panic, but you should have it on the screen and protect you as best it can against mosquito bites.
