About this private tour
one of the most beautiful temples in Chiang Mai.
Explore the 700-year old site, This Chiang Mai temple near Doi Suthep mountain is also known as the “Tunnel Temple” both for its unique network of underground tunnels and its location in the forest. There is a large stupa to visit, as well as “teaching trees” which feature words of wisdom in both Thai and English. Monks here live in a very natural setting, among deer and ponds full of fish and turtles. It is a very unique temple by location in the forest surrounding and peaceful atmosphere, an ancient temple more than 700 years old built into the side of Suthep mountain, less tourist and full of cultural experience.
