of Lampang

Within proximity of Chiang Mai, Lampang’s tourism flow requires in following a more rustic path.
We intend to include the spiritual must-sees of but add some natural splendor and a taste
of what may be your new favorite Thai snack during this full day.

WHY THIS TOUR?

The exploration of unique roads that more often require in turning into lesser-used roads have led to the creation of a more rustic feel to what the Lampang province is known for. We tend not to skip the downtown highlights but instead follow paths that have been left aside for decades and now suddenly have bloomed in finding the natural side of this province, just south of Chiang Mai.

A full day of taking the Rustic Roads of Lampang pays homage to what once was a centre of commerce and religion, and now entails stunning pieces of nature and cultural treasures.

TRAIL ITINERARY

The Rustic Roads of Lampang

08:30 - 17:00

An early morning departure from your booked hotel in downtown Chiang Mai follows the main road in southern direction towards Lampang. The third-largest province in northern Thailand is known to have a large collection of Lanna-era sights and temples, depicting the importance of this town in its glory days. The relaxing journey to Lampang takes around 1.5 hours, following the path of mountain ridges that are the very last extensions of the Himalaya mountain range. En route, we make a stop at the village of Baan Pao, part of the rural outskirts of Lampang; a town that has gained national fame for the creation of delicious rice crackers, a popular snack among Thais. The process of how these are made will be shown as well as sampling a piece.

After this visit, we arrive at the borders of the Chae Son National Park, known for its lush and mountainous landscape, offering plenty of opportunities for a relaxing break and panoramic views. From waterfalls and hot springs, often visited by locals over the weekend, nature rules with a firm hand here; the reason why not many tourists enter this national park is unknown, but definitely makes this perfect for our rustic theme.  Lunch will be included at a local restaurant.

Lampang town cannot be left aside now that we’re so close. Renowned sights such as the Wat Chedi Sao, an important temple with 20 Chedis, and the Wat Pra Kaeo, situated along the Wang River and influenced by various prominent cultures are the main temples we include.

We end the day by seeing the clock tower of Lampang, an important statue of 10 meters in height. Its central position with the main roads reaching the far corners of Lampang also is a hub where you may be able to see Lampang’s unique means of transportation – the horse-drawn carriage (ride not included). Unfortunately, we have to call it day and head back to Chiang Mai and your booked hotel.
