your experience

On this half-day guided tour, thoroughly explore some of Chiang Mai’s ancient Buddhist temples.

Wat Phrat That Doi Suthep

Nestled 1685 meters above Chiang Mai, this is the most famous temple in the city, and for good reason. Its gorgeous views alone are reason to climb the 306 steps and you’ll experience the sunrise when you reach the top. With the Doi Poi mountain as its namesake, this temple is said to have been built in 1383 and has remained a treasured Thai religious site for centuries. Be sure to ask your guide about the ‘White Elephant’ legend along with other stories connected to this striking temple. Architectural and decorative features to admire include the gold-plated spires, the white elephant statue you’ll see first on arriving, and the Naga-lined staircase leading up to the top along with numerous pagodas, statues, and ancient relics.

The Kruba Srivichai Monument

Visit the golden Kruba Srivichai Monument where you can make an offering here with the monks. At a height of 21-meters and a width of 18-meters, this statue pays tribute to one of Thailand’s most illustrious monks – Kruba Srivichai – who was also an engineer and built many mountain roads.

Wat Pha Lat (Hidden Temple) & Wat Umong

Part of the three ‘forest temples’ in Doi Suthep National Park, Wat Pha Lat, or ‘The Hidden Timple’ is literally hidden in the lush foliage of the forest. A much smaller temple, Wat Pha Lat is still special to visit for its calm and natural surroundings and its religious significance. The trail you’ll climb is called the ‘Monk’s Trail’ and is quite an adventure through the forest. The temple is known for its impressive dragon statues at the entrance and Burmese artwork.

Wind up this excursion at Wat Umong, a 700-year-old temple with interesting sections such as the underground tunnels and the magnificently imposing ‘chedi’ or ‘shrine.’ Now known world-over as a spiritual center for Buddhists, the peaceful and rustic setting of this temple is heightened by the specially-constructed underground tunnels which create a noiseless ambiance for better meditation.
