Trip itinerary

Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep is a must-see temple and one of the most respected among all Thais. As the temple is located at the top of a mountain, challenge yourself to a half-day tour to walk up the 300 steps of the intricately-carved mythical Naga Serpent Staircase or take a cable car to the top for an incredible view over the stunning architecture, statues, murals, and shrines of the city as well as surrounding areas.

Day 1: Half Day Doi Suthep Temple

You can choose one of two time-traveling: Morning 08:00-12:00 / Afternoon 13:00-17:00.

  • Today, journey up to Doi Suthep, the peak over Chiang Mai, to the famous Wat Phra That Doi Suthep.
  • This temple is a must-see place for anyone who is first time traveling here and is a part of your trekking path. Make the fascinating trip up the long, winding route to enjoy the refreshingly chilly air as you rise.
  • Arrive at the temple and exit the car to begin the ascent to the top. Start 300 steps or take the cable car instead, it's time-consuming but totally worthwhile because the city from the bird's eye view will blow you away. 
  • At the top, you can admire the gleaming gold and jeweled pagoda built in the Lanna architecture style at the temple's apex. Listen to the monks' chanting while admiring the panoramic views of Chiang Mai from the viewing platform. 
  • Explore the Central Chedi, decorated with gold flakes and famous for its shimmering facade in the midday light. The architecture, statues, murals, and shrines are spectacular, and commanding views of the surrounding countryside are guaranteed.
