Climate in Chiang Dao in October: The weather can be quite chilly in the early morning and evening so we recommend bringing an outer layer (like a fleece of sweatshirt) and long pants, particularly for morning meditation and evening yin practices. If you tend to get cold easily, you may also want to bring a scarf or hat.

There is an outdoor yoga shala and a swimming pool located at Nest 1, which is a 700m walk from Nest 2. Some days we may have afternoon practice at Nest 1 to take advantage of the fresh open air yoga shala.
