Day two begins with a tour of the Chiang Dao caves afterwhich we head out into the light again and ride on a mix of dirt parths cut by hill tribes enjoyng scenery like soaring limestone cliffs. A little more more local culture on day three as you start your ride at a temple retreat at the Tub Tao caves. Following the Mae Kok river to the town of Mae Salak is always a highlight because its one of of the most scenic rides of the trip.
