Day 1

Morning:

Pick up from your hotel in Chiang Mai and take a drive north for around 45 kms, stopping at a local market to buy freshest ingredients for cooking dinner and breakfast at your homestay village. Continue driving for approximately 1 hour before beginning the afternoon trek.

Afternoon and Evening:

Have lunch at the start of the trek at one of the local villages before setting off on a 4-hour trek through the forest.

Enjoy the forest atmosphere along the Tiger trail before arriving to Baan Pa-Low, a Lahu hill-tribe village where we will meet with the local people to experience their way of life. It will be very good to say A-BO-YA (Hello, thank you, good bye)

There are some beautiful views to be had during the trek and in the twilight on the mountainside. Dinner will be freshly cooked for you by your hosts, inside the hut, before settling down for the night.

Day 2

Morning:

After breakfast take a short tour of the village before packing your bags and setting off on today’s trek. Today is a long day of walking, so make sure you bring appropriate footwear as the mountain side can get extremely slippery in the rain.

On the trek you will pass by many of the villagers’ plantations, including; tea, coffee and rice fields, as well as waterfalls and streams as you make your way up and down the mountainside.

Afternoon and Evening:

After approximately 4 hours of trekking, we will stop for a jungle lunch by a secluded waterfall, where you can feel free to take a swim and slide down the natural waterslide formed by the rock face.

After lunch trek for around another 2 hours before reaching the Mae Mae hill-tribe school, where we can stop for a rest and visit its children at the orphanage center.

The long day’s trek finally ends once we reach the magnificent tree house where you can take a shower and relax before enjoying dinner with the host and family before heading to bed.

In some villages you may not be allowed take pictures of people and some places may be out of bounds to visitors. If you wish to take photographs or are unsure whether an action is appropriate, please ask your local guide for advice.
