Doi Suthep en handwerkindustrie   


De Wat Prasart Doi Suthep ligt op 1300 meter hoogte in het Doi Pui National Park. De fraaie tempel, een bezoek meer dan waard, ligt 16 kilometer van de stad en is te bereiken over een steile, bochtige weg. Een 300 treden tellende trap, met Naga's (mythologische 7-koppige slang) als leuningen, leidt het laatste stuk naar de tempel. Is deze trap niets voor u dan is er ook een lift! Bij helder weer heeft u een mooi uitzicht over Chiang Mai.

Hierna brengen we met een offtheroad truck een bezoek aan een (nogal toeristisch) dorp van de Hmong, een van de bergstammen van Noord-Thailand.

De plaatsjes Bor Sang en San Kampaeng, even buiten Chiang Mai, staan bekend om hun handwerkslieden. Een bezoek aan een aantal werkplaatsen is een 'must' tijdens een verblijf in Chiang Mai. We vinden hier onder meer zijdeweverijen, zilversmeden, houtsnijwerkplaatsen en lakwerk- en celadonfabriekjes. Hier worden ook de beroemde parasols gemaakt en beschilderd. Een grote tuinparasol kost hier zo'n 20 euro! Bij een combinatie van beide tours is een lunch inbegrepen.


Karen Hill (langnekken) en andere bergstammen vanaf Chiang Mai

 

Een dag vol avontuur door het prachtige berglandschap van Noord-Thailand. Eerst een rit door de Mae Rim en Mae Tang districten langs rijstvelden en sinaasappelplantages met een schitterend panoramisch uitzicht over ontelbare Thaise en Birmese bergen, bedekt met dichte jungle.

 

We stoppen bij een orchideeën- en vlindertuin waar u kunt genieten van deze exotische bloem, waarvan er in deze omgeving zo'n 473 verschillende soorten bestaan. We vervolgen onze tocht en gaan op bezoek bij een aantal bergdorpen waar verschillende stammen zoals de Akha, Lisu en Palong wonen. U maakt kennis met hun traditionele manier van leven.

 

Tijd voor een heerlijke lunch in een lokaal restaurant voordat we terugrijden richting Chiang Mai. Maar eerst brengen we een bezoek aan het beroemde Chiang Dao grottencomplex. In een van de grotten in dit 12 kilometer diepe grottenstelsel staat een marmeren Birmees Boeddhabeeld. De gids gaat u voor en we laten u de directe omgeving zien.

 

We gaan verder en sluiten deze enerverende dag af met een bezoek aan de wonderbaarlijke Langnek & Langoor bergstammen. De Langnek-vrouwen, gekleed in kleurrijke traditionele kledij, dragen bronzen ringen om hun nek en de vrouwen van de andere stam hebben zware zilveren ringen in hun oren. Niet alleen vanwege de traditie maar ook om hun schoonheid te tonen.

 

Na al deze belevenissen rijden we terug naar uw hotel in Chiang Mai.
