The Old Elephant Trail by Four-Wheel Drive

Uncut Thailand, untold Thailand, where the roads are still constructed from dirt and tourists are very thin on the ground. 

Stop first in Chaomthong, a local market full of Karen people. Weave up to the beautiful Wat Phrathat Si Chomthong and take in the atmosphere of this isolated temple. Then keep going, heading further and further away from Chaing Mai.

Take the old elephant trail through Ob Luang National Park. Keep admiring the views as you head through the spectacular Ob Luang Canyon and then stop at Theppanom Hot Springs.

And that’s just one day. Wind along Mae Chaem River, stop at different hill tribe villages, continue to Wat Chan and stay off the beaten path in Thailand.
