600 year-old Wat Phra That Doi Suthep

This is a good tour to start off your stay in Chiang Mai by giving you an overview of the beautiful city with over 700 years of history.  Take the winding road up the side of the hill overlooking the city to visit the most significant temple in Chiang Mai, the 600 year-old Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, which lies 3,500 feet above sea level.

Inside you will find the symbol of the city, the copper-plated Chedi that is topped by a five-tier gold parasol, which contains relics of the Lord Buddha. From the terrace on a clear day, you will have a fine panoramic view of the entire city. Once you get there, that final climb up the 306 steps of the Naga staircase (a Thai mythological Dragon-headed serpent) will seem worth it! In the city you will see the Kings glorious flower garden temple at Wat Saun Dok with a large central Stupa and Wat Chedi Louang which consists of an impressive Chedi, originally built in 1411 and Wat Pra Thard Doi Suthep (the most outstanding landmark of Chiang Mai 3,500 feet above sea level).
