A great motorcycle ride taking you to one of the most popular locations in Northern Thailand.  This tour is suitable for riders able to ride long distances over multiple terrain including road and off road riding around a 50% split. Great nightlife on this route, good roads and good off road terrain.


Day 1 Depart for the town of Pai, Northern Thailand

Leave around 9am - Total distance around 200 kilometers (depending on your ability.) 


on both riding days we are able to alter the routes on the fly, either adding in more road riding or more dirt either easy or more challenging. You may have read about the Road to Pai, a road of 768 hairpins, but we're taking the less travelled dirt road just to spice things up a bit.  Leaving North West from Chiang Mai we head out on the main highway towards Pai diverting from the hard top onto some fairly easy dirt trails through the forest and into Pai town.  Estimated time of arrival will be around 4:30pm giving us plenty of time to check into our accommodation and clean up before heading out for food and drinks.  Th 


Day 2 Return to Chiang Mai the 'wrong way around'

Leave around 9:00am - Total distance around 200 kilometers 


Leaving Pai we head onto the dirt within just a few kilometers from our hotel for a long return journey to Chiang Mai. Today the first 130 kilometers is almost entirely on dirt trails and over several mountain peaks on more challenging trails from yesterday before re-joining the main highway and making our final stop in Chiang Mai. Accommodation is included for this evening and we hope to return around 5-6pm.  More often than not a night out on the town is called for and an end to a short but fairly tough 2 day Motorbike ride.  


Recommendations and notes.

We've rated this as suitable for 'ADVANCED' riders not because the terrain is particularly difficult but it can be quite a tough ride due to the distance covered in only 2 days. It is an Adventure tour so includes road and off road which would suit riders with good on road experience but with little or no off road experience.  Probably not suited for riders looking for more hard core dirt trails.


This is a basic budget tour tailored for people that may already be in Chiang Mai so it is assumed you will already have accommodation before and after the tour but if not we can arrange this for you at a reasonable cost close to our regular starting point in the city.
