The way to the cave was amazing! I walk through some of the villages with beautiful views! When I saw the board that arrived the Cave Nation Park, That place is start to go in the jungles, a lot of bamboos trees and a lot of bugs. I just do the same way to cave and back to the same way. It didn’t too hard but it was great!

Beautiful sites. Very steep in sections. Many stairs throughout.

This trail ain’t no joke. Got lost a few times due to the lack of guidance. The Dtaat Mook waterfall is well worth the hike... bring a swimsuit for a nice refreshing shower.

Hiked this route today (early January) clockwise and starting from the temple at Doi Suthep, ending at Huay Keaw. First section to the village is a really nice hike more or less along a contour as it traverses through various drainages. Yes, many trees down across the path here but easy to duck under or walk around. Well shaded but with nice light through the giant trees. Took me 2 hours at a brisk pace. Stopped for a coffee in the cute village. As you approach you walk through farms of strawberry, coffee, plums. Only real vistas of this hike are from this village, otherwise trees too thick. Finding the trail to Chiang Mai was not hard with GPS but I did manage to go down the ridge on another one, more to the south, leading to the farms in the valley below town. I walked until I got to another trail on the map and then walked north until I got to this route. This entire section took me another 2 hours to get all the way to Huay Keaw, where it’s easy to get a Songthau. In the middle of dry season this hike was fine with no pant legs (meant to bring mine but forgot at the hotel), no bug spray, and no sunscreen. GPS is helpful though! Most but not all of the trail has cell reception. Hydrate at the start and in the village and you might not even deplete your water bottle. I left the temple at 12:30 and finished at 4:45, walking fast since I started late.

Mostly my review is the same as everyone else's. The first half is lovely, way, and leads to a great temple door a rest. The second half is challenging if you are older and out of shape as I am but needs nothing more than some water and a willingness to keep going. We got directly to the trailhead by getting a red truck at the North Gate. We asked for Monk's walk and he answered with walk to temple? 50 baht each.

Just did this hike today at the end of December. It rained yesterday but otherwise we are well into dry season. Easy to get a tuktuk to Basecase Cafe, then walk to the trailhead. We were here around 11am. The first section to Pha Lat is nice — shaded, not too steep, and well traveled. Pha Lat is very pretty! It gets considerably steeper after Pha Lat to Doi Suthep. The earth is well packed red clay and in many places seasonal stairs have been worn into it. Nice to arrive at the temple from the back side, away from the throngs of people and vehicles. Had lunch at the top and left around 2pm to start the descent. Finding the trail was easy with this app and GPS. Had to ignore a small sign about “contacting” the national park to use the trail. From here to Monthathan waterfall trailhead/campground is well established trail through the shaded jungle. Several beautiful waterfalls, some portions very steep, even signs at several junctions, but never confusing or impassable. People obviously maintain this trail with machete and their footsteps, although it could use a pass with a chainsaw. At Monthathan we could not find an obvious trail down the drainage so opted instead to hike the road out to the main road, then down the main road until we met up again with the drainage. From the bridge there it’s well traveled paths down to Huay Keaw. Walking on the main road sucks. Someone should describe the descent from Monthathan.

December 23, 2019. Wat Pha Lat, Chiang Mai: Hiking the Monk’s Trail (and then on to Wat Prathat Doi Suthep). We started at 8:15 AM by getting a red taxi from Thanon Huay Kaew to Thanon Suthep. We walked to the formal end of Thanon Suthep to where the road goes up to Galae Restaurant, where there's a red-bordered-by-yellow sign pointing to the right - we followed this winding road beyond the south entrance to the Chiang Mai Zoo - where the road ends were a bunch of parked motorcyles and a gate; this is the trailhead. Thus at 9:15 we started the hike. It's a pretty easy climb for 30 minutes to Wat Pha Lat, which is beautiful and quiet and secluded - we passed a serene 30 minutes here. At this point we were halfway to Wat Prathat Doi Suthep, but had done only 1/3 of the elevation to it. So the second half was relatively arduous with some pretty steep climbing at times - it's good that conditions were cool and dry with clear skies, and that we had plenty of water and proper footwear. Not long after leaving Wat Pha Lat we came to the Doi Suthep road, at which point we had to bear right to find the trail continuing on up. After about 40 more minutes of steady hiking we came to the Doi Suthep road, just below Wat Prathat Doi Suthep. We opted to stay off the road and continue upwards on the paved road leading off to the right. This wound around to a point where we picked up a steep trail upwards a short distance to the same paved road which led down to the last stretch of the Doi Suthep road to our goal - we followed this up for the last 300 yards to the steps leading up to the temple. So overall hiking time for us was about 75 minutes from the trailhead to Wat Prathat Doi Suthep. It's a fun hike that apparently many people enjoy, since we encountered maybe 30 people on the way.

the loop was not accurate, the tip of the loop was non-existent, it was a rocky waterfall instead, no way to climb up the rocks, had to turn back, so disappointed.

Susan Biasco's description is excellent, but note that you must get a ride to the BACK entrance of Chiang Mai Zoo. If you go to the front entrance, as we did, it's an hour's walk to the Monks' Trail trailhead. We ended up hiking first to Huay Keaw Waterfall -- a short and very lovely hike -- and from there, up to the road, route 1004, also known as Sriwichai Road. If you go this way, turn left when you reach Sriwichai Road, and it's a 40-minute walk to Wat Pha Lat. Not as nice a walk as the hike from the trailhead near the back entrance of the zoo, but it got us there. If you have any trouble trying to get a rotdeeng driver to take you to the zoo's back entrance, ask for Wat Fai Hin. It's on the same road as the back entrance of the zoo and the trailhead. Have fun!

Best! The start was a bit unclear - we started at the village and found stairs going up to the temple, then took a right and found the jungle path but it was super overgrown. Follow this path up until you connect to the road. incredibly beautiful hike after that.

Great little hike. You pass through what looks to be an adventure camp for children to find the start. As you can imagine the initial trail is very well trodden. However as you approach the waterfall if becomes somewhat more overgrown. The waterfall itself was completely secluded and we had a great time showering.

Excellent trail. It’s mostly ascent and offers a challenge to those who want it, but is easily manageable to others. Trail is easy to follow and well travelled. Bring plenty of water.

The walk to the cave was fantastic with beautiful views, and the cave itself was great. I would suggest that you only do the cave and then back. If you do the loop, as others have mentioned, you have to hack through jungle and I came face to face with a cobra!! Fortunately it heard me coming and moved out of the way, but it was terrifying. That section was very difficult and downright dangerous for anyone inexperienced and I would not recommend it.

The beginning of the trail is overgrown, but with phone in hand, it’s easy enough to stay on track. Good idea to take a battery backup for the phone. Trail is beautiful and peaceful, but at one point you have to walk down a main road for quite a while. You will also go via Wat Pha Lat, so consider that if you’ve done that trail before. First part of the trail is very steep but not difficult terrain like going up to Doi Suthep. I had to rest a few times but it was worth the climb.

Update 11/29/19 mountain closed Rode up from Chiang Mai today and our guest house host told us the mountain is closed this season. He recommended a cafe near the caves where a guide can hopefully steer us in a new direction

To start, the trail is wildly overgrown. you will question whether or not to continue for about the first .4 mile. when you are going through this part I recommend keeping the app open to ensure you're going the right way. I went the wrong way and up a very steep trail because it looked right. You then continue through a steep incline for a little over 1 mile. the picture area is a destination spot so people will be selling food and taking photos overlooking Chiang Mai. theres another more exclusive spot shown on the trail map a few feet away. you continue down the highway until you reach the next section of trail which is a steady decline down to the road. then for the last mile it's on a paved road. I will definitely say the topography of this trail changes a ton and is exciting to climb through. Not an easy hike at all. definitely recommend hiking shoes and bring water. Hat and sunglasses 100% required through the day. Beautiful trail.

I really enjoyed this loop which has a bit of everything. The path is overgrown in places and it would be easy to get quite lost without a phone and the app. You’ll have some dogs barking at you when you get started, but they’re harmless. Consider long pants for some of the overgrown parts, and take plenty of water.

Nice trail, it's a pity they are asking 100Baht to foreigners to do such a short walk. You can swim in the second waterfall

There's construction going on just after the road crossing, you cannot walk to wat Suthep

Mittel. Mit Kindern ok. Sehr gute Infotafeln auf dem Weg! Ab dem Pavillon Waldpfad, aber leicht erkennbar. Schönes Baumhaus für Pause.
