Day 2

You head off with the group along rural roads with very little traffic. Most of the riding today is along winding roads! You leave Chiang Mai with your BMW GS and ride along secondary roads to the charming village of Mae Wang, which is known for its elephant camps. You visit a small elephant camp called "Coffee with Elephants" and spend time with these gracious animals.

Your tour then heads uphill to Doi Inthanon National Park. You will ride off-road for the first time on quiet secondary roads to Mae Chon Luang, passing a wealth of vegetable plantations.

A traditional Thai lunch awaits you in Mae Chaem. Your motorcycling route now leads from Mae Chaem over the continental watershed toward Myanmar. Savour traditional Thailand at its most authentic, with small hill-top villages, mountain tribes and a maze of roads to explore. You will be riding along some gravel roads.

On the route, you pass a huge Christian church and schools. Mae La Noi nestles within a beautiful, lush landscape that you can enjoy to the fullest. Once you reach the valley, you follow the main road along the Thai-Myanmar border to Mae Sariang. This will also be your overnight destination.

Day 3

Mae Sariang Loop

Today you will get your money's worth with off-road riding. You'll start your day with a tour in an easterly direction to the Salawin River. This river forms the border between Thailand and Myanmar. Initially, you will ride from Mae Sariang to the river on a tarmac road to Ban Mae Sam Laep where you take a short break. The route continues northwards along the river on unpaved roads.

Your next destination will be an old military post on a small hill with stunning views of a large river loop. Passing a small village, you return along the same off-road trail for a coffee break. The next viewpoint awaits you after you have crossed the mountain range, as was the case in the morning. Today you will encounter steep sections of road and countless opportunities to enjoy the beautiful panoramic view over this remote region of Thailand when you stop. Late in the afternoon you will arrive in Mae Sariang, your overnight stop.

Day 4

Mae Sariang – Pai

Your journey today heads northwards along the Thai-Myanmar border toward Mae Hong Son. Your first stop on this motorcycling tour will be in Khun Yuam. You will be riding along beautiful, winding roads with sweeping curves. Further north, you will head to an interesting boutique hotel with restaurant, where you make a lunch stop. The Fern Resort is located at the foot of the jungle.

After lunch, you will be back on off-road trails. You will ride along the legendary "Elephant Trail" to Pai on gravel, earth and asphalt tracks. Your motorcycle will wind its way along old roads, over mountains, and through valleys. On the way, you will visit a small mountain village that grows vegetables at higher altitudes, and mainly corn and rice in the valleys. The last section of today's stage leads to the Pai River. Your route runs parallel to the river and heads into the town.

Note: After lunch, you have the option of selecting between the following other routes. However, our partner recommends option one. All routes lead to Pai, today's final destination: 

Option 1: Visit the village of the "Long-necked women" (fee for a boat, 40 baht round-trip, admission to the "Village of the long-necked women" 250 baht).

A massive river crossing awaits you with three dry caves higher up. Massive formations adorn the impressive cave walls. Discover the remains of prehistoric teak coffins in the third cave.

Gravel roads lead from Tham Lod north-east toward the Myanmar border. You now ride up into the mountains passing rice fields and some small villages. Riding through pine trees, you will come to a famous helicopter crash site without wreckage, which has been removed. The ride there will be a unique experience for the whole group. Your trip will take you to the military post at the crossing to Wiang Haeng. A pleasing gravel tracks leads to Pai, your overnight stop.
