Chiang Rai to Doi Tung Tour Description
Some say that the left collarbone of the Lord Buddha was enshrined within one of the pagodas on the mountain peak of Doi Tung. Certainly the area has a serene beauty all of its own, and a mysticism that makes for the perfect break from the rush of the cities and towns below. Our trip includes the best of the peaceful, scenic area around Doi Tung, and promises to be an adventure not soon forgotten!
We start our tour by taking a picturesque drive from Chiang Rai along the route that leads to the peak of Doi Tung, 2000 feet above sea level. As you might expect, the views of the country below are sensational, and the mountain itself is home to many fascinating sights. Whilst here, we pay a visit to the Mae Fah Luang Gardens, a beautifully cultivated landscape, commissioned by the King’s Mother, before visiting her late residence, the impressive Royal Villa, and also the Hall of Inspiration.
After visiting the Royal residence, we take a trip further up the mountain, to Wat Pra Thad Doi Tung; considered by many to be one of the holiest places in the region. It is within these striking golden pagodas that the collarbone of Buddha is said to reside, and the Wat itself has an intriguing history, dating back as far as 911AD, which your guide will narrate to you as you explore the tranquil surroundings. We then relax as our driver takes us back to civilisation, taking in the breath-taking panoramas of northern Thailand’s Chiang Rai province as we descend.
This trip offers a wonderful insight into the more spiritual side of the area, and is the perfect calming antidote to travel-weary visitors!
