Mae Taeng (in Thai: แม่แตง) is a district located in the northern part of Chiang Mai Province. The Mae Taeng district is nestled between Mae Rim and Chiang Dao districts. By car, it's a short 40km drive from Chiang Mai city. However, in order to explore the valley, we recommend to stay for a night or perhaps more.
Apart from supplying essential irrigation and electricity to surrounding areas, the Mae Ngad Dam is a wonderful place for both adventure and relaxation. Take a motorboat or kayak along the lake; there are a number of floating raft houses which offer a great spot for lunch on the lake.
