Looking for an off the beaten path activity in Chiang Mai?  A chance to connect with the local community and see something that might generally be off the tourist radar?  You should check out the Chiang Mai Hiking Club!

On the day we visited, there was a solid group of about 40 local Thais and foreign expats living in Chiang Mai excited to head by songthaew up to the top of Doi Pui for spectacular views and a hike down the ridge to a Hmong village, ending at Doi Suthep temple.Chiang Mai Wat Doi Suthep

We had a lovely time on the hike, and met some great people.  The hike met at the appointed location and left at the appointed time, giving the impression of an organized and well run group.

They organize a number of hikes to different locations though out the month, all of which are posted on their website.  If you like hiking and beautiful scenery and your visit to Chiang Mai corresponds with a hike that interests you, I recommend that you check it out.

  1. I love hiking and Thailand has some great trails! I think Mae Sariang (not far from Chiang Mai) offers great hiking activities. There are beautiful landscapes and hill tribes to visit. And it’s almost unknown by most foreign visitors.
    Keep it up!

    • Thanks for the tip! When we get back to Thailand (which might be a few years with two little kids in tow) we will definitely add that to our list! It is always nice to have a less touristy suggestion.
