Hike to Top of Doi Ton following motorbike road.
Doi Ton is a 890m high peak on the eastern edge of the Chiang Mai
valley, on the Chiang Mai / Lamphun boundary. There is a white chedi
on top of the cliffs overlooking the valley. This will be our
destination. We will drive about 30km from Promenada out past Alpine
Golf Course to the base of the mountain & the start of the trail. The
last 1 km of the drive is along a dirt road. The dirt road to the top
of the cliffs is 5 km long, climbing about 450 m in elevation. It’s a
fairly easy hike. We will return to the start point by the same
trail. If the weather is clear, we should get great views across the
valley to Doi Suthep & Doi Inthanon. Duration of hike about 4 to 5
GPS startpoint of the hike: N18 40.230 E99 11.022
Update 6 February
There is a nice restaurant at a resort near the Alpine Golf Cource. Option is lunch here after the hike.
