A Chiang Mai activity hub

Posted by Northerner on June 15th, 2013 filed in Adventure, activities, excursions

Mae Sa Valley is located just 18kms north of Chiang Mai and boasts a wealth of attractions and activities suitable for people from the ages of 8 to 80. The entrance to the valley is Route 1096 which is signposted just to the north of Maerim. This road also marks one end of the perennially popular Samoeng Motorcycle Loop Tour.

After turning onto the 1096, the first major attractions are the Mae Sa Snake Farm and the Monkey Centre. The snake farm houses a varied collection of snakes which handlers seem to treat as life-long buddies during daily shows. Macaques and other simians are the attractions at the monkey facility. Shows are staged regularly here during the daytime.

The Chiang Mai X-Centre is nearby and a real mecca for adrenalin junkies. A 50-metre bungy-jump, off-road buggy and motorcycle trips, paintballing and a xorb ball are the draws here. The route up to the multi-tiered Mae Sa Waterfall is a little farther along. Food vendors at kiosks at the foot of the waterfall sell a range of Thai delicacies as well as renting out picnic-mats. The valley’s legendary orchid farm is close to the waterfall access road.

Continuing in the direction of Samoeng, Queen Sirikit Botanical Gardens and the Elephant Nature Park are the two remaining highlights. The gardens contain a dizzying array of colourful species which are housed in both greenhouses and outdoor plots. The elephant park is a rehabilitation centre and visitors are able to interact with these magnificent beasts.

Our dedicated 1Stop guide to Mae Sa has more details about the attractions in the valley.
