Full description
Get picked up from your hotel or accommodation in Chiang Mai and drive up the curvy mountain roads to Doi Suthep - Pui National Park. You will visit the most important temple here. Walk up 306 steps (or, if you prefer an easier method, take a funicular ride) to the temple, which sits at 1,100 meters above sea level. The famous golden pagoda is stunning and the temple contains the relic of the Lord Buddha. Here, you'll also have the chance to get a holy blessing from a Buddhist monk and participate in a wrist tiding ceremony. From the balcony, enjoy a panoramic view of Chiang Mai. Next, you'll continue to Bua Tong waterfalls. Swim around the clear water or climb the "sticky" limestone and enjoy the gorgeous natural scenery. On the way back to Chiang Mai city, you can also stop at an orchid farm.

Started the day early at 05.30am the guide (Jackie) and driver looked after us extremely well all day including significantly adding to our photograph collection. Jackie was also very informative and went into great detail concerning the history of temple and the beginnings of the Buddhist religion. Very enthusiastic competent tour guide.

I booked this trip last minute and was so happy that I did. Mona was our guide for the day and she was wonderful. She is very knowledgeable about Chiang Mai and can answer any questions you have. She kept the day packed with lots of fun activities and took lots of pictures for us. I would highly recommend this tour!!

Sid and Pan were great guide and driver! Sid took his time with us at the temple and added Khae Soi to lunch at my request. We never felt rushed. Several waters and snacks provided as well as useful travel information in Chiang Mai. Their sunny dispositions rubbed off on us and we enjoyed the Sticky Waterfall hike. I highly recommend this tour and guide!
