1 Day Self-Guided Tour "The Secret Samoeng Loop"
Our goal for this excursion is to avoid any city traffic and to find for you the most stunning windy roads around Chiang Mai. Hence you do not follow the “normal” Samoeng Loop. You go beyond by using remote roads! You will enjoy the wonderful scenery and may stop at an Elephant Camp. The highlight in Mon Jam/Moncham with it's incredible views over the mountains and its plantations.

Chiang Mai – Samoeng – Mon Jam – Chiang Mai (160 km/100 miles)
We meet at our service center 7.30 AM. Here you will receive a briefing about the tour and your motorcycle. After you are familiar with your motorcycle, you head in western direction and in just a few minutes Chiang Mai seems to be far away. From now you will follow great winding roads without much traffic for the entire day!
You may visit Thai Elephant Care Center and get some first-hand information about the majestic pachyderms, which unfortunately would not have a future without tourism. In the laid back village of Samoeng you can have a coffee break.
Afterwards you follow one of the official “Rural Roads of Thailand” passing small villages and mountainous farmlands. You will be surprised of how many strawberry farms can be found in this area. During the colder months of Thailand is perfect weather for growing strawberries. You continue on a twisty road up the mountain to Mon Jam/Moncham which is a part of a Royal Project. Enjoy the breathtaking views and a lunch if you are hungry.
Afterwards you ride more twists and fantastic bends. You can stop at a view point to take some memorable pictures and before you reach Chiang Mai in the afternoon you may enjoy a last delicious coffee at a beautiful mountain coffee stop. (Distance: 160 km / 100 miles)
