CMHD02 Half Day Doi Suthep Temple Tour




550 BAHT



Visit Chiang Mai's most famous Mountain top temple Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep as well as a Hmong hill tribe village situated on the same mountain.


On pick up from your Chiang Mai hotel we will make our way to the base of Doi Pui Mountain where the road starts to wind its way up towards the temple. You will be dropped at the base of the temple then you will need to make your own way up to the temple under your own steam, most will take the famous naga staircase featuring 306 steps! well worth the effort if you are energetic enough. For those who feel they can not tackle the stairs then there is a lift option which will get you there for a small extra charge. The main feature of this temple is the large central golden chedi which sits in the middle of the main compound as well as it's elevated mountain top location. Walking around to the east side of the temple outside the main compound there is a platform which allows stunning views across the whole city and beyond. Following the temple we will continue further up the mountain to a Hmong village, although well visited by foreign tourists you will still get to see a glimpse of Hmong hill tribe life.
