Accommodation

Check-in Time:
08:00
Check-out Time:
16:30

The accommodation is either for two friends, partners, or shared with someone of the same gender. On your first night, you will go camping in a remote Karen hill tribe village. Then you will spend your second night in a twin-share accommodation in another hill tribe village. This is a relatively simple accommodation but is still en-suite with hot water and Wi-Fi. The rooms are fan-cooled only, but air-conditioning is not needed this high in the mountains.

Program

Day 1: Training and visit to temples and hill tribe villages (approximately 100 kilometers / 62 miles)

You will be picked up at 8:00 a.m. from the Chiang Mai Gate Hotel in Chiang Mai City and transfer you to the training base in the lovely Mae Wang valley around one hour from the city. On arrival at the "base camp" in Mae Wang at around 9:00, you will be introduced immediately to your tuk tuk and crack on with the drive training. This will all take place "off road" and is a thorough session giving all participants the time to get used to these wonderful vehicles and master all the controls.

You will then head off down winding rural lanes, passing through small farming communities (think classic SE Asia photo-ops) and up to a remote meditation temple where you will receive a blessing for the adventure ahead. After a simple but hearty local Thai lunch, you will then ride along the back roads up into the mountains toward your overnight destination of a remote Karen Hill Tribe village.

You will then camp there tonight in the fields (do not worry, there are showers and toilets available) to get a real hill tribe experience. In the evening, you will learn how to cook jungle style with an open fire and lessons from your Karen hosts before spending the night under the stars, a real Thai adventure!

Day 2: Mountains and more hill tribe villages (approximately 75 kilometers / 47 miles)

After breakfast, you will explore the local area and forest around the village before getting back into the tuk tuk and heading farther into the foothills of Doi Inthanon, Thailand’s highest mountain. With lots of stops to explore and relax, this is a fantastic journey through spectacular mountain scenery and a real insight into this part of the world.

You will stop for a late lunch at a small roadside restaurant, the real deal in terms of local Thai country fare, and then head on to Ban Mae Khlang Luang, your overnight base. Your overnight accommodation is in another Karen village surrounded by mountains and rice terraces and is the perfect setting for the second night of the adventure.

Once you have checked in, you will explore the village and see how the community lives and get to sample some of the best freshest coffee around! In the evening, you will have a traditional Thai-style barbecue in the rice fields, great fun and a real Thailand tradition.

Day 3: Trekking , waterfalls, and back to Chiang Mai City

You will head off this morning to explore the forests around the village in the foothills of Doi Inthanon. The trek is only around five kilometers but will take you through fantastic forests and eventually to a series of stunning waterfalls. You will have lunch at the foot of the largest waterfall, and there is plenty of time to swim in the pool at the foot of the falls.

After lunch, you will trek downhill out of the forest and back to the hill tribe village. It is then time to say goodbye to your trusty tuk tuk and transfer back to Chiang Mai city by private minivan. You will arrive back at Chiang Mai Gate Hotel around 4:30 p.m.
