Nice hike! Easy, walk back along the road. We didn't do.the ridgeline and we did a different variation of the loop, but I'm still figuring out Alltrails and they automatically linked in to the Doi Kham loop.

Very nice, relatively easy. Lots of shade too, and pretty flowers!

It's beautiful, but quite adventurous and challenging in some parts. The path is not always easy to find and it becomes quite bushy and steep here and there. For me it was great. Definitely not recommended without GPS. Beautiful nature and a great view on top.

very nice. Relatively easy.

This was super challenging but we enjoyed it! If we did not have this app we would of got lost! Make sure you have battery. Take a stick to help you through overgrown parts. Also look out for snakes. We saw one in the jungle then a massive one in the waterfall so be careful if you go swimming!

Sendero bien definido con subidas, bajadas y planos. Con sombra de las copas de los árboles, mucha hojarasca, algunas rocas. Hay varios puntos en el camino para nadar. Vimos macacos y langures. Totalmente recomendable. 6 hrs en total con 2 paradas de 20min para nadar y 10 minutos en el restaurante.

Randonné agréable. Certains passages mal indiqués. Une randonnée ou la chaleur est moins présente grâce à l’altitude.

Nice, relatively easy hike. The trail is in pretty good shape. It’s a popular spot and is regularly used. There are some steep sections, but a lot of the trail has concrete steps and some hand railing. There are a few bridges, some pretty worn and rotting. There is interesting informational signage along the route. The waterfall flow varies from dry season and rainy season. It was good for young kids. Would visit again, however the entry fee is a little high.

Le départ se situe juste en face du parking, je m y suis rendu en Tuk tuk depuis Chiang mai. la montée est raid et le gps est parfois utile à certaines intersections. Le village en haut est magnifique ! Ensuite le chemin qui descend jusqu'au temple est un peu plus dans la brousse. Gps quasi indispensable. Pensez à prendre des imprime écran de l itinéraire, le réseau Internet ne se capte pas partout (contrairement au gps) l application est une sécurité, chargez bien votre téléphone et économisez la batterie. Prenez de l eau, il fait chaud (surtout la dernière partie au soleil) le village en haut est un lieu où l on peut se restaurer ! à faire, je me suis régalé. Dite à quelqu'un où vous allez et garder un moyen de communication téléphonique, avec le plan de cette application et un petit niveau randonnées correct, c est dure mais faisable sur la journée. ( en ne partant pas trop tard !) good Luck

I went on this hike in early March with a friend. The starting point is difficult to find at first, and it looks like private property. You have to go through a red gate and pass by defensive dogs, but when you keep going, you likely won’t see another person for a while. We hiked up halfway where we saw mountain bikers coming downhill. The terrain is steep and there is some (not a lot) shade in the morning. Lots of trees, birds singing, dried bamboo leaves. No wildflowers :(

Don't do this hike. Barely any trail. Tons of bushwhacking. Fireants. Covered in cuts on my legs.

C'est niveau difficile qu'il faut donner à cette rando Car La montée est très raide, il y a même des endroits avec des cordes. Et Avec la chaleur et l'humidité qui règne ici le vrai niveau est difficile Pas modéré. Emportez bcp d'eau, de quoi manger , du produit anti moustiques et crème solaire. Joli point de vue au sommet. On a fait 1/2 tour en haut pas trouvé le chemin qui fait la boucle. Nous n'avons croisé qu'un couple donc c'est très sauvage ce qui est bien agréable

In summary: beautiful and shaded with some stunning trees and very pleasant waterfalls. Good variety, but with some confusing junctions. Mid February and the weather was excellent and not at all humid. In detail: Used Grab car to easily get to the trailhead, with the Army radio station as the destination - the driver knew automatically we wanted the trail. Nice easy climb to the first temple complex (Pha Lat), which is gorgeous and peaceful. Those were our favorite temples in Thailand: no barrage of collection boxes, no tacky art or signs, and almost no other people (at about 0730). Indeed steep from there to Wat Doi Suthep, and a lot of telephone wires are in this section. After a tiring climb you reach a bend in the road up to the temple. Route says you are supposed to veer right, which takes you on a driveway to private houses, all with guard dogs. Head toward the house at the end of the road, ignore the dirt road on the left heading almost the opposite direction, and find the dirt path on the left heading up the hill. We had to pass right in front of a barking dog to do so. You will eventually end up in a neighborhood, but there are paper signs directing you to the temple at every single turn. This takes you in thru the back where you won’t pay a fee. This temple gets very busy and is fairly commercialized. Views of the city are hazy. To continue the loop, you have to head down the cool giant staircase, pass the big roof building on your right with vendors, and find a dirt path on the right between vendor stalls. Satellite map was critical for me to figure this out. There are signs there pointing to toilets. Back at the stalls are many good places for food and drinks (coffee)! The rest is straightforward until you get to the forestry station, at which point you will need to follow the road for a bit then find the trail to the left of a lodge and ignore the sign (what sign?) as others have said. Very soon you will come across the coolest tree ever. Trail/signs are clear from there and will take you to a falls prior to Monthathan. These falls (forgot the name and doesn’t show in English on google) were our favorite of all. Later you will reach a lookout point with sign for Monthathan nature trail. This will NOT show you the falls. To get to the falls quicker head left where the sign says “EXIT”. We mistakenly took the nature trail instead and it ended near the entrance of the Monthathan park, but it is a very short walk up the road (past bathrooms) to the falls from there. I would recommend the nature trail as there are signs to showcase some interesting features of the local environment. From the Monthathan Waterfall we ordered a Grab car and ended the hike rather than continue the loop. We were at the trailhead at 0700 and were done at 1300, including our break for breakfast at the base of Wat Doi Suthep.

Amazing trail! We were completely alone and haven't met anyone. at the beginning we were a bit scarred about dangoures animals but haven't met any either ;) whoever wants an adventure, I would recommend this walk. But it's not easy it goes up and down - so take enough water with you :)

Belle rando. La montée et la descente sont raides. un belle environnement de jungle. le GPS est assez utile pour se rassurer sur l'itinéraire qui est route fois assez marqué. nous avons débuté depuis le zoo grâce à un bus depuis Chiang Mai et fini à l'université par the monk path. Ça visibilité n'étant pas terrible en se moment, nous n'avons pas fait la randonnée pour le panorama depuis le temple...
