  • The caves a short drive we arrive at the beginning of this staircase. If you take a Pack full of food or whatever and bring it on, you will be asked to help. The walk is pleasant. Are 500 steps in the middle of the jungle leading to the mountain shrine and gradually climbs we have written some Buddhist teachings, even in English, which give to think about. Take the climb with calm and "listen" at the top of bella vista, great relaxation and opportunity to pray/meditate in a unique atmosphere. To do obviously same-day hike to the caves.

Where to stay in Chiang Dao

Chiang Dao lodgings range from backpacker rooms to cozy resorts, so there is something for every budget. The town remains a perfect getaway for tourists wanting to escape crowds and explore Thailand's untamed wilderness, and some guesthouses are set in the jungle to provide easy access to those unspoiled areas. In true Thai spirit, guesthouses are warmly decorated and run by friendly staff, though many rooms often share bathrooms and offer no air conditioning. If you plan to visit at the peak of the season, reserve your accommodations in advance and expect higher prices for both rooms and bike rentals.
