Best Trekking Cafe in Chiang Mai, Thailand
Updated: Jan 25
Chiang Mai is one of the great places to explore if you are a big fan of trekking and nature. It's surrounded by mountains and several trekking places to visit. If you are looking for a beginner level to explore the hike, I recommend the monk’s trail around the Suthep area.
The trail would lead up to the beautiful Wat Pha Lat วัดผาลาด where you can enjoy the panoramic view of Chiang Mai city and the beautiful architecture of the temple, truly breathtaking.
Here are some photos from my last trekking trip.
Wat Pha Lat
When you come down from the Monk'd trail, this is my favorite place to go to chill out and relax after the exercise!
The place is owned by trekking enthusiasts. It’s a very cozy place where there are cafe, restaurants, and shop selling trekking gear and it’s a pet-friendly place! I love to go there to chill and play with cute dogs at the place.
On weekends it usually has a singer that plays chillout music in the morning. You will enjoy the atmosphere and nature.
His name is Rupert. He's a very famous golden retriever in Chiang Mai.
The place offers a variety of drinks ranging from coffee, tea, and pastry that go along with it at an affordable prices.
There’s a made-to-order (ar-han-tam-sang อาหารตามสั่ง) Thai restaurant and an American-style BBQ restaurant.
The Trekking Gear Shop
There's also a shop that sells trekking gear ranging from shoes, clothes, and equipment. There are various brands. I got my trekking shoes here. The staffs are very knowledgeable and can recommend you whatever things that you have questions about.
