Stories, information and comments from Doi Inthanon climbers
Story by chiangmaicyclist from Chiang Mai, Thailand, submitted on 20/04/2016
Rory, the annual race up Doi Inthanon runs from Chom Thong, not Mae Chaem. The information is correct for the ascent from Mae Chaem. From Mae Chaem, one gains roughly the same elevation as from Chom Thong but in a much shorter distance making it a steeper and harder climb.

Story by Rory Stace from Nakhon Sawan, Thailand, submitted on 19/03/2015
There is an annual bike race up this mountain and the distance and avg grade you have in your database (22.1KM and 8.6%) are both very inaccurate. The base of the climb to the top is just over 38KM and the avg grade is approx 4.7%. Thousands of people have done this race, and recorded the GPS statistics, so I don''t know how you could be so off.

The first 23KM are relatively doable numerous falso flats to catch your breath and an avg grade of only 3 or 4 percent. Then you basically have another 15KM straight to the top with no flat sections. I would guess about and 8% avg grade with numerous sections north of 10%.

Very difficult climb. Took me just under 3 hours 28 minutes to go from top to bottom, with no stops. Record time is something like 1:55 for a former pro.
