tour details

The magnificent temple of Wat Doi Suthep is much revered locally and is found at the top of Doi Suthep (Suthep Mountain). To reach the temple, we climb the 290 steps up its dramatic staircase, flanked by twin nagas (serpents) which undulate up the sides of the stairs. Those who are unable to climb the staircase may use the lift for a small charge and walk back down the steps. Wat Doi Suthep was built in 1383 and is dominated by a gorgeous golden chedi which contains relics of Lord Buddha. Our tour continues on to Chiang Mai’s biggest market, colourful Waroros Market, and we’ll stop off at impressive Wat Chedi Luang and Wat Phra Singh, both 14th century temples of considerable interest.
