Doi Suthep, Phunping Palace & Hill Tribe | Tour Description
One of the principal attractions of Thailand is its magnificent temples. Doi Suthep temple, considered by many to be the finest temple in Northern Thailand, is the ideal destination to explore and get a taste of the ancient culture of the country.
As we tour the temple complex, our experienced, knowledgeable guide will tell you all about Doi Suthep’s intriguing history. We ascend via the beautiful stairway, which is flanked by mythical Nagas, which represent the progress of man from Earth to Nirvana. The temple, built over 600 years ago (in 1383) is a sacred place for many local people and houses a truly spectacular golden pagoda, within which many holy Buddhist relics are situated. The temple complex is a veritable palace of shining golden statues and a reclining gold Buddha, and is a fascinating location to explore.
We also step outside to appreciate the impressive view of the land below. From the temple, which is 3,500 feet above sea level, an unforgettable panorama can be seen of the mountainous terrain of Chiang Mai, sprawling below us. It is the perfect spot to get out your camera!
We also visit one of the region’s hill tribe villages to gain an insight into their unique way of life, and stop off at the Royal Phuping Palace to enjoy it’s incredible gardens.
This wonderful half day tour not only provides the chance to escape from the bustle of the city for a while, but also gives you the opportunity to enjoy one of the country’s finest temples, whilst learning about its rich history and interesting culture.
