Full description
Be picked up from your hotel in Chiang Mai city center and go on a short drive to Wat Umong temple in the late afternoon. At this time of day, the crowds are few and views are prime. Upon arrival, explore the underground tunnels, bask in the beauty of the temple, and enjoy the forest surroundings. It is said that the trees in this forest have words of wisdom for those who pass by. After Wat Umong, the next stop is Doi Suthep temple. At this ornate structure, which is reached by a 306-step staircase, enjoy a beautiful sunset that lights up the golden temple. Also, take in the spectacular views of Chiang Mai at night from the summit of the mountain. Join a traditional ceremony performed by the temple's monks at the Golden Pagoda. After an afternoon spent exploring Chiang Mai’s temples and enjoying the sunset over the city, be returned to your hotel.

It was great! Our tour guide Dee was amazing, he speaks english very good, is very knowledgeable and takes photos for you. He even bought fried crickets for us to try (we wanted that lol). Doi Suthep was very peaceful, it's very pleasant to be there instead of busy city. We have even seen the monks and their ceremony. I recommend this trip, especially Dee as a tour guide!

Very pleasant visit in Umong temple and Doi Suthep. The idea of visiting Doi Suthep temple for Sunset is very successful. Less people and more quiet atmosphere give this moment very enjoyable. The lightning makes the golden reflections of the Chedi even more dazzling. Our guide Jeab was very friendly and gives a lot of informations about history and bouddhism.

Puma was such an amazing guide! Due to a cancellation I was the only one on the tour. That meant a lot of time to talk during the car ride, where she answered all my questions about Thai culture, Chiang Mai etc. You could tell that she had a lot of knowledge and that she loved her job! The car was comfortable and I felt very safe during the drive. I mentioned missing the Sunday Market and she was kind enough to drop me off at the top so I could walk through it back to my hostel, making sure I found my way back. The sites were really beautiful and the monk ceremonies with the chanting was magical! We got to the top just as the sun was going down, but due to the smaug/fog the view from the mountain (and the sunset) wasn't very good - but the temple was well worth the trip anyways. All in all a great tour and I have a bunch of photos to remember it by - thanks to my wonderful guide.
