Climb Summary


Doi Suthep Temple at the 11 kilometer mark of the climb.

Summary by Ard Oostra, Switzerland:

Thank you Ard.

Doi Pui:  This is one of the most popular climbs for cyclists in Thailand due to its proximity to Chiang Mai and its wide (2 lanes up, 1 lane down) and mild gradient road. You may see a variety of cyclists, from the occasional climber to professional national teams along the way.


Otherwise the road is mainly used by tourists (many minibuses and taxis) wanting to visit the Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep Monastery half way up and higher up the Bhubing Palace. The road section that is beyond the Palace is small, steep and at places the surface is in poor condition.

In the lower and mid sections there are panoramic views over Chiang Mai region, at the higher parts there are at some points openings in the lush green vegetation and one can see the surrounding mountain land in western and northern directions.

WELCOME TO THAILAND

We LOVE Thailand and the greatest guide any cyclists travelling to a foreign country could ever hope for.

Doi (mountain in Thai) Inthanon was the middle climb of our whirlwind sweep through Asia – first stop Mt. Fuji, Japan (4 routes) second stop Doi Inthanon (with Doi Suthep and Doi Pui as a Thailand bonus) and finishing with Wuling Pass, Taiwan (3 routes to the summit).
