Pull on your walking boots, start stretching those muscles and take to the hills in this adventure packed trip taking in the unique sights of northern Thailand! Make new friends as you hike through remote villages, learn the secrets to jungle survival from the locals. If you`re looking to escape the cities and get a taste of the real Thailand, then this whirlwind journey will take you into the heart of this fascinating region!
Rise and shine! Your friendly guide will collect you from your hotel between 09:00 and 09:30am and, with the other travellers in your group, the tour departs from Chiang Mai on the 3-hour drive North in an authentic Songthaew (an open pick-up truck)!
Our first stop is at a local Market to pick up some last minute supplies before the trek. Stop along the way at Orchid Farm and Butterfly Farm, it’s another exotic place to visit in Chiang Mai and continue to explore the five interconnected Chiang Dao Caves before heading to our destination. The tour then arrives for lunch, just in time to dig into the tasty morsels lavished upon you! Don`t be shy - you`ll need the energy for the afternoon`s fab activities!
Allowing for digestion, it`s then off for a 4-5 hour walk through tropical forest to the tour`s village home for the night. Guests will be responsible for carrying their own trek pack and any additional personal items required for the two nights.
There`s plenty of time to explore the magnificent village surroundings - and there`s also the opportunity to help your guide prepare the evening meal - they may let you lick the bowl!
Tonight is the first dinner in the jungle followed by an enriching evening talk with the villagers. Spend the night in a traditional style bamboo hut. Remember - although the conditions are basic this is an experience of a lifetime!
Up and at `em! Today is yours free to enjoy all the fantastic stuff you didn`t have time for yesterday.
The most colourful ethnic minorities can be found in the hills of northern Thailand. The day is yours to walk through forests and rural terrains to visit some of these hilltribe villages. Many of the villages enjoy their own language, clothing style and belief system. It is an unforgettable experience to meet and interact with the wonderful people of the hilltribes and it is a great way to learn about and appreciate their fascinating cultures and way of life!
The exact itinerary of the walking on this trip may change from time to time, taking into account the weather and local conditions.
Today is your last day of trekking.
After a final scrumptious lunch in one of the local villages, the tour will be met by a Songthaew to enjoy the 3-hour journey back to Chiang Mai.
The accommodation is 2 nights shacking up with the locals! Sleep sound on floor mats (no worries, they`re soft!) in traditional, local, bamboo huts. Don`t expect five-star luxury but you`ll sure have everything you need for a cozy stay, and you can`t get more authentic and down-to-earth than this!
Mosquito nets are provided by the villagers but take your own precautions too with long clothing and repellant.
Bathrooms are shared, spick & span and just perfect for a good hose-down after a long day trekking the breathtaking landscape
