We started from the top with our 2 kids. When starting from the top the trailhead is impossible to find due to the changes in the temple grounds, it is better to start from the road intersection before the temple. It is challenging for kids so make sure they are seasoned trekkers before doing this trail. We also did geocaching on the way.

We walked up one way and got a tuk tuk down as it's very steep, muddy and slippery during wet season. A great almost free activity :)

Great hike up from the Chiang Mai Zoo. We took a red truck from the old city down Suthep Rd. It cost us 40 Baht (1 USD) for the two of us. We stopped at Wat Pha Lat. We enjoyed it very much. It's very calm. The rest of the hike up to Doi Suthep is very straight forward. We saw a bunch of monkeys in the trees. We were chased by someones dogs. It was a bit scary. The temple is beautiful. A lot of tourists but worth the hike.

If you ever have a chance to go to Chiang Mai Thailand, do yourself a favor by trying this fun hike to a beautiful temple at the top.
