Your guide will meet you at the hotel for your Doi Chiang Dao adventure. Drive to the village at the foot of the mountain where we will meet our local guide and porters. It is a short drive to the start of the hike. There will be other trekkers on this trail.
We will trek up the mountain through forest and open areas until we have lunch somewhere on the slopes of the mountain. Enjoy the views and the clean mountain air. You will pass through mossy forest with orchids. It is really beautiful.
After lunch we will trek up to Ang Salung where we will set up camp. We will drop our luggage and rest for a while. From Ang Salung it is a short distance from the summit of the mountain. After having set up camp we will hike up to the summit to enjoy the sunset. The views are magnificent. Return to the camp where we will have dinner. Our guide will prepare for us.
