Chiang Mai Cycling to Luang Prabang – 11 days

Chiang Mai Cycling to Luang Prabang .Connecting the two magical cities of Chiang Mai and Luang Prabang, this journey starts in the northern part of Thailand, a mountainous region bordering Burma and Laos, punctuated by the mighty Mekong River. The area has been baptised the “Golden Triangle” with a history as colourful as the people that inhabit it.

Day 1 :Chieng Mai Arrival and eary ride ( D )

Thailand’s northern city of Chiang Mai is the starting point of this adventurous tour. The tour starts leisurely with a ride along the Ping River and heads to the handicraft centre at Ban Tawai for some shopping.

Day 2 : Chieng Mai – Chiang Dao ( B , L )

Today is a treat for mountain bikers as the trail winds from rice fields set among soaring limestone cliffs through villages of local hill tribes. After lunch at a Forestry Camp the riding continues along serene mountain trails

Day 3 : Chiang Dao – Thaton  ( B , L )

Cycling on back roads through many small villages you’ll see how the locals live and work. The afternoon ride is one of the most scenic on the trip and a real pleasure to cycle. The day is topped of with a stay at a beautiful resort with a splendid view of the Mae Kok River.

Day 4 : Thaton  – Chieng Rai ( B , L )

Ride straight from the resort to a Jakhu village before hopping onto a boat for a leisurely cruise down the Mae Kok river. The afternoon riding is off road, with beautiful views of the river, before the surface switches to tarmac for our final push into Chiang Rai.

Day 5 : Chieng Rai – Chieng Khong ( B , L )

Though today’s riding is picturesque, through rice fields dotted with limestone karst mountains, on good road surfaces, the highlight will be the lovely lodge we’ll spend the night at. Set right in the middle of a Hmong village you’ll be able to mingle with villagers and have tea with the shaman.

Day 6 : Chieng Khong Boat To PaK Beng ( Laos  ) ( B , L )

Today we leave Thailand behind, cross to Laos and spend our day relaxing on the Mekong River. We have a private boat so we can stop when we want to visit some riverside villages along the way.

Day 7 : PaK Beng – Muong Beng ( B , L )

Be prepared for an epic day of challenging riding on a broken track along the Beng river, through pretty Lao villages and unforgettable mountain and jungle scenery. Cycling through rural Laos, you’ll have to make way for all types of colourful vehicles and livestock.

Day 8 : Muong Beng – Odom xai  ( B , L )

We are now in the central highlands, and there are some spectacular views across the rugged mountain landscape. We cycle through Hmong villages few people will ever visit and through some of the region’s last remaining rainforest.

Day 9 : Odom xai – Nong Khiaw  ( B , L )

A day to relax those overworked legs and enjoy the balcony of your riverside room or take a leisurely stroll around the small rustic town of Nong Kiau.

Day 10 : Nong Khiaw – Luang Prabang ( B , L )

A river journey between limestone cliffs on the Nam Ou river starts the day. Disembark at Pak Ou and visit the famous caves which are crammed with sacred Buddha images. Time to get back on the bicycles and a scenic ride to oneof Asia’s most picturesque towns, Luang Prabang.

Day 11 : Luang Prabang – Departure ( B )

Rise early to watch the monks in their saffron robes collecting alms before we say goodbye at breakfast.
