Perfect short hike to do with a 2 yo on your back. Not too crowded. We had a friendly Hmong guide, so I think you also support them in a way. Excellent views!

Great guided hike. Beautiful views and a great walk. Strenuous in bite. Not for those with sore legs or the elderly, but doable for kids.

I would not recommend this trail for anyone who wants more than a forest walk. It’s horribly disappointing - both with the views blocked now due to pollution and the lack of physical challenge the hike provides. And you need to pay 200B per group for a guide (mandatory - no way around it)... which I personally dislike hiking with a guide greatly!! I could see how it would be beautiful in November, when our guide said it was the best time to see it, but it wasn’t close to that reality while I was there. So sad because I was truly looking forward to it! Try Doi Suthep instead - I heard there are beautiful Mountain Views and treks there.

Peaceful short trail with moderate up and downs. Lush forest and open alpine meadows with flowers and birds. Very well maintained, clean and lots of signage in English and Thai describing the area. Best to go early to avoid the crowds and heat. 300 Baht per foreigner to enter and 30 Baht per car. Required to have a Hmong guide. They are very kind and only 200 Baht.

If you happen to be in north Thailand, take the time to visit Doi Inthanon National Park. The drive from Chiang Mai is not far, and is quite scenic. Doi Inthanon is the highest point in Thailand. As implausible as this might sound, make sure to take a jacket with you, as it can get quite chilly at the top during certain times of the year. There are several different hikes that you can do in this area. There are some trails through the jungle, and there are some nice trails through magnificient flower gardens. The views are some of the best you will find in Thailand.
