Information about Visakha Bucha Day Walking Ceremony to Doi Suthep

On the eve of Visakha Bucha Day in Chiang Mai, a large candle walk up to Doi Suthep temple is organized. On the road, population and private companies will help you in this long ascent of around 9 kilometers by offering you food and drinks. The next morning also, this walk up is possible but the evening more beautiful, I think.

The ascent usually begins from Kruba Srivichai, the temple just after Chiang Mai Zoo, at 8pm. Count 3 to 4 hours to get to the top according to your rhythm.
The next morning, the day of Visakha Bucha, a great alms offering ceremony to monks take place at the temple. Many people will spend the night at Wat Phra That Doi Suthep after the evening ascent to attend to the offerings ceremony.
