I've done other bike tours in Chiang Mai...but Trailhead is the best so far by a long shot. They pick you up from your hotel and provided me with a free ice latte to start the morning. They run small group of 5 people so it makes it easier for tour guide to keep track of everyone. Their bikes are top-notch and in mint working condition. Other tour companies I noticed their bikes are not well maintained and it breaks down every time during the tour.

The Trailhead tour guide took really good care of us...if someone is lagging behind..they would back to check on them. I did their newer tour, the Sticky Waterfall Explorer. It was pretty tough but a huge reward at the end with a beautiful waterfall and delicious lunch. I highly recommend Trailhead if you don't like chaos of other big tour groups. I'm already planning to book another tour with them...something more downhill and less climbing.

Thanks for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. We very much appreciate your feedback about Trailhead being the best biking tour in Chiang Mai. We try to go the extra mile to be the best and offer the best bikes in the region which make all the difference. As you mention the Sticky Waterfall Explorer is quite tough and a good physical challenge but the reward is the fantastic waterfall and lunch at the end which makes it worthwhile.

Fantastic mountain biking trip December 23 - 27th!!!
A friend and I did the 5 days 4 nights mountain bike tour. The first day was actually a city tour on city bikes where we got a real feel for city life in Chiang Mai as our guide took us through backstreets and the like.

The mountain bike rides day 4 ~ 5 were real eTicket downhill rides.
The guides were all utterly fantastic (Lek, James, Chu, Ack). Friendly guys, great ability so speak English, and all expert riders. They were more than patient when I got a little timid on some sections and walked.

The full suspension bike performed well, no complaints.

Highly recommended!!!

Must do. Without a doubt.
Go out of Chiang Mai and explore the Pha Daeng National Park with Trailhead.
Less traveled than doi inthanon and gave me a sense of adventure.

I am glad we selected traihead, as the transport (comfortable car), guides (knowledge/language/helpful and good riders) and bikes are all high quality.

The biking itself was beyond expectations. Pure fun, and a bit of fear to keep you focused on the steep downhill parts. Requires some fitness and bike handling skills, as the uphill parts combined with the weather conditions may drain some energy.

The footage and images we received of the ride were more than a bonus.

Hope to be back someday soon.

Absolutely must do experience! We were in Thailand for 2 weeks and touring Doi Inthanon with THIS company (specifically Lak and TK as our guides) was hands down the day we were most happy with. The two of them created an environment that made us feel like we were hanging out with friends, and were amazingly knowledgeable about the area and people. Doi Inthanon itself was drop dead gorgeous, and our package included meals at tucked away local spots which had much better food than the big tourist traps. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone!

We had an amazing day with the Sunset Splash and BBQ tour at the Mae Kuang Dam. The trailhead team was well prepared and organized a memorable day for us. We started wiith a brief introduction to the basic of kayaking, before we started our kayak trip. This tour is suitable for everyone, even when you have never tried kayaking before. We even watched some wild buffaloes chilling in the dam while kayaking and finished our kayak tour with an amazing sunset view. Back on land, food and drinks were nicely prepared with some fresh coconuts, bbq sticks, salad, som tum and more. It was an awesome experience that I would highly recommend going when visiting Chiang Mai.

Did the Sunset Splash and BBQ tour with these awesome guys :-) We met up at their office downtown and then drove to the damn where the kayaks got assembled and instructions given. Each had his own vessel and off we went into the sunset. You dont really need skills about this stuff beforehand. The kayaks are very stable ( and new) and all the equipment really nice. After a couple of hours of sailing around we came back to the starting point where the most amazing BBQ had been made. Really good food. Cold drinks and then the most amazing sunset. Will for sure go again. And the misses even think we should get our own kayaks now :-)

I booked a private 3 day MTB training camp with Trailhead. Lek, who is an XC and Enduro pro rider, was pacing my up and down some awesome hills and single trails. Some of the best natural trails I have seen in Asia. All natural single trails and jeep tracks to mimic the trails that I need to ride in my next epic Race this summer. It was a truly thrilling experience. Everything you need on a XC mountainlike ride. I cannot recommend Trailhead and Lek more for their dedication to nature, sports and real off the beaten track experience. The professionalism and prompt communication puts you in full confidence. Thank you Dan (Owner of Trailhead) and Lek once again for the truly unforgettable experience you put together for me. Only regret is that I could not stay longer for more trails.

Thanks for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. It was a pleasure to host you for 3 days and Lek certainly enjoyed the work out! There is an abundance of amazing trails in the region so we're glad you got the chance to experience deep inside the national park. We hope you can visit us again for some more climbing adventures!

What a great team!
Our 6 day point to point mountain bike adventure was flawlessly planned, led, and organised by the exceptional Trailheads team. A huge thank you to Dan, Lek, Wi Wi, and Kom. And not to mention the ladies of the office and great Trailheads coffee shop.
The exceptional value of this adventure will be hard to match anywhere else; the riding routes were sublime; your professionalism coupled to that smiling friendliness, remarkable.

A well organized tour that covered all activities mentioned in description. The mountain bikes had comfortable saddles, worked well and had appropriate gears for the uphills. We rode on road, off road to some red sand, off road through the jungle and some challenging up-hill inclines on road. There were 3 times when we were presented with choices of if we wanted to be more adventurous or if we needed a bike break and could catch a ride in the van. We loved putting our bikes onto the local boat ferry and traveling upriver about 20 minutes. There were snacks/drinks available just when we needed an extra boost of energy. We loved the 'smoky' coconut water at the finish of the bike ride. We appreciated that time was flexible and we never felt 'rushed', but rather got to rest, chat and pedal at our own pace. The sticky waterfalls were a great place to cool off and be playful. We ate at a local restaurant on the way back to the city (about 4 pm). A full day of adventure and pushing ourselves as well as enjoying the nature of Northern Thailand.

I did a 6 day mountain bike tour with Trailhead, and I'm absolutely thrilled with the experience. Lek, Kom, Dan, and Vivi took fantastic care of our group of six, providing delicious meals, local tips, and comfy accommodations. They are amazing people and I cannot praise them highly enough.

The route was an ideal mix of challenge and stunning views, making it truly unforgettable. Their attention to detail, like serving refreshing young coconuts after each ride, was superb. Do yourself a favour and book your adventure with them now!
