    The guides were great and you get lots of time with the elephants both feeding and hiking. Lunch was a good Thai homestyle meal.

    This is a relatively simple and clearly marked trail that takes you up to Wat Pha Lat. It's about 1.5km from the official entrance into the park. I started from the bottom of Suthep Road for a bigger challenge and added another 500 metres to 1km. Most of the trail is natural terrain. The elevation is gentle in the majority of places, but some of the steeper parts have steps. Banners hang from trees to indicate the path, so it should be impossible to get lost. The trail is clearly very popular as I passed fellow hikers and runners. You won't be disappointed when you finish at Wat Pha Lat.

    I had just completed the Wat Pha Lat Monk’s trail, visited the temple complex and decided to press on with climbing up to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep via the Monk’s trail. This is a 3 km route climbing some of steepest terrain I’ve ever hiked and I hike a lot. Combined with the heat and humidity, it’s extremely challenging.

    We did the 3 day, 2 night, 40 km trek with Mit as our guide--it was absolutely amazing and Mit was so great and kind! We went during the beginning of the wet season which was actually perfect because although we got rained on a bit, it was a lot cooler. Staying at the village with the avocado farm and Loongting was our favourite. It was so peaceful and beautiful. We are also vegan and it was easy to accommodate that diet. The hike itself was appropriately challenging. I have mild asthma and Mit was often checking to make sure I was okay and took breaks whenever I wanted. We felt safe and had a lot of fun! I would make sure to bring extra snacks though and bring fruit from the breakfasts for the rest of your day.

    It was a wonderful experience just being able to interact with the elephants so close up. We had a great day in spite of the weather. Of course we were there in monsoon time so when it rains it really rains, consequently the ground was sooo muddy and the elephants were loving it
