A perfect dirt bike tour if limited on time or budget. We've taken the essence of our number 1 selling Ultimate Dirt Bike Tour, and slimmed it down into a great 4 day package for proper enduro work out. Starting In Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand we make our way into the Shan Apalachians on fairly easy terrain before the gnarly trails high into the mountains into the provincial city of Mae Hong Son. Our accommodation for the first night is clean comfortable and totally unique to the region and most importantly close to the dirt trails for tomorrow's epic ride.
After a decent breakfast the following morning we gear up and within minutes on great single track trails deep into the Thai jungle. Hugging the sensitive Burmese border we make our way into a huge refugee camp housing many of the Karen people who have fled into Thailand from Burma (Myanmar) over recent years. Todays ride is a little gem of a trip on a multitude of various terrain including single track buffalo trails, fast open logging tracks, river ravines, steep corkscrew mountain passes, tight waterways up irrigation channels and twelve big river crossings. Accommodation is in a small family run modern hotel near the Burma border arriving in time to dry our wet boots and gear and down some cheeky beers before a feast of a dinner.
The following day we move away from the Burma border and head to a jewel of a location high in the mountains through stunning teak forests and into hill tribe territory. Still on fantastic dirt trails but today is more about the end destination; A small hill tribe lodge with very few visitors 1300 meters above the sea taken care of by our Karen Hilltribe Hosts. Grab some beers under the stars litening to the sounds of the jungle and a comfortable night's sleep in a beautiful hill tribe lodge ready for our homeward bound ride back to Chiang Mai the following day where we rejoin the route of our first days ride completing a strenuous but enjoyable dirt bike loop from Chiang Mai.
Recommendations and notes.
This is arguably one of the best short adventure style motorbike tours available in Thailand. You need to be quite fit and healthy and have at least intermediate off road ability. Accommodation on this route is quite limited as we choose accommodation that is near to the off road trails but all are very clean and comfortable, with hot showers and amenities.
