Chiang Mai Hilltribe Trekking

Description

This short trekking trip makes a great add on to any holiday in Thailand and will leave you with so many great memories. You can travel up to the north of the country by plane or train, before or after a traditional beach holiday of city break. And once at Chaing Mai you will be taken to stay at hilltribe villages, spending the nights in traditional bamboo cottages and experiencing life with the local families.

Day 1
Chiang Mai to Karen Hilltribe Village

You will be picked up from your hotel in Chiang Mai by truck and first stop is at the Mae Malai local market. Observe and mingle with local people trading their goods, food, vegetables, fruits and flowers. Then drive on and stop at a waterfall where you can swim and enjoy lunch. Following this, continue along the winding road to Huay Nam Dung National Park to visit a Shan village. Then walk with a guide through the jungle for around two hours to a Karen hilltribe village. On arrival there is time to explore and meet the local people.

Day 2
Karen Hilltribe Village to Lahu Hilltribe Village

Wake up and enjoy an atmospheric breakfast surrounded by fog which is common here in the mornings. On the second day, you trek for three hours to an elephant camp where you can watch as the mahout goes to get the elephants from the forest and prepares a comfortable chair for you. Meanwhile the guide will cook you a hearty meal. Then it's time for your ride through the forest on one of these gentle giants. Later you walk on to a Lahu hilltribe village at Bann Pong Ngan for an overnight stay.

Day 3
Lahu Hilltribe Village to Chiang Mai

Enjoy a marvellous breakfast in the forest then set off on a two hour bamboo rafting trip stopping along the way to visit a Karen hilltribe village. Then continue your exciting rafting adventure, passing many rapids, to a Shan village where lunch will be prepared by the families. In the late afternoon you will be taken back to your hotel in Chiang Mai by local truck or directly to the airport or railway station to continue your Thailand holiday of begin your journey back home.

Another amazing, fantastically organised and totally faultless trip on a multi-city trip to Thailand. The hotels were so nice and their location suited my needs precisely, the standard of accommodation was superb. Thanks so much- you really are wonderful.

KLM are probably the worst major airline I have travelled with. Uncomfortable seats, bland food, luke warm at times and a take it or leave it attitude. I was unable to checkin online and only knew my allocated seat when I checked In at the airport. I have had words with them on Facebook. Thank you as your service was very good and I have already recommended you to a friend.
