Stop at an elephant camp surrounded by lush jungle. We can watch elephants bathing and demonstrating their skills. Explore the Chiangdao caves before lunch at a local restaurant.

Then we start our bike ride through rural back roads first, continuing on off-road trails, across a pristine landscape leading to small hill tribe villages. Visit Lahu, Lisu and Akha villages, and discover the Palaung people from Myanmar (only a few settlements in northern Thailand). Finish cycling at the Padeng Lodge, to spend the night.
