4. Last week's destination, Doi Mot, over Chiang Rai road

This is a volunteer-led hike and you are responsible for your own safety at all times. Please read the full hike description/requirements and consider your preparedness.
In the case of rain, we inform cancellation on this website at 06:00 on the morning of the day.

Cool breezes and high-altitude (up to 1,804m) ridge-top views in the Doi Lanka area but also quite a lot of up- and down-hill.   About 9 kms in about 6 hours, up 600m/down 900m. A few narrow trail sections above steep drops and a few short steep slippery-leaf sections, but mostly clear trails.

After safely reaching our vehicles, we’ll drive to our favorite watering hole, Pang Hai Coffee, for beer and other refreshments.

We will carshare out to the 1252 road, leaving at least one vehicle at the hike end point, and then starting the hike from the carpark at Wat Kio Tam (Kham in roman script on map) at over 1,100m, and where clean toilets are available. See green trail in map above. Seats in cars cannot be guaranteed. No groups please.

Meeting place:  Meet at Bangjak Petrol Station (18º 52.408′ N, 99º 8.040′ E) on H.118 to Chiangrai, just after the junction with H.1007 into Doi Saket (see map below; click to enlarge) town at 07.20. There will be be a ‘pre-meet’ at the usual place in front of CenFes (opposite Isuzu, 18º 48.313′ N, 99º 1.197′ E) on the same road at 07.00 for those who need transport and those who have room for passengers.

  1. Hey! Is there anybody, who could go with me for this hike from Chiang Mai? I have no idea how to get to the meeting point 🙂

    • Hi Agnes, the meeting place is next to the Central Festival shopping mall, which is on the corner of H.11 “Superhighway” and H.118 to Doi Saket and Chiangrai. Try google maps if riding. All the songtaews and tuk-tuks will know “CenFes”.

      • How much should cost songthaew or tuk-tuk? And what time should I start from Chiang Mai? Thanks for fast answer 🙂

  2. Sorry, Agnes, Central Festival shopping mall is in Chiangmai. The cost will depend on where you are travelling from.

  3. Great! Thanks! See you on Sunday!

  4. Hello. I want to join this hiking! Is there any other requirement to join? We are 2 (1 man and 1 woman) and want to join at Cenfes.

  5. Hi,
    is return (after cafe break) also to CenFes?
    Thank you!

  6. Hi,
    Agnes and Gordo, do you want to meet somewhere in city centre and share the transport cost to CenFes?
    Or anybody else?
    Thank you!

  7. Hello guys!
    Has anybody a gps track recordered? Or a map with route? As I can’t join you on sundays hikes, I’d like to walk it when I have free time.

    • Hi Anton, I’m afraid we don’t publish gpx files publicly as it may encourage inexperienced hikers to attempt routes which they may not be ready for.

  8. I could not catch the Sungtow early in the morning. I would join next time. Sorry for miss it.
