Chiang Dao Discovery



Get stuck into some serious hill tribe trekking, with this three day two night experience in the Chiang Dao area. Over the three days you will trek to and overnight in a rarely visited Lahu village high in the hills in the Chiang Dao area. On the following day you will trek through some pristine jungle to overnight in a Shan village. On the final day after trekking out of the jungle we will spend the rest of the day biking through rural villages, farms and rice paddies in the Ping River Valley

Day 1 - The trek will start when we collect you from your Chiang Mai hotel and make the one hour drive north of Chiang Mai to our trek start point. On route we will stop at a local market for the guide to stock up on supplies for the trek. We will begin the trek in the foot hills of Chiang Dao mountain and make our way up to a remote Lahu village nestled high up in the mountains. On arrival in the village you will be able to explore the village or kick back, relax and enjoy the views over the mountains and jungle. You will overnight in the village in a real Lahu village house, be prepared for very basic conditions as you will be sleeping as the locals do. The guide will prepare the evening meal for you

Overnight - Home stay in a Lahu House

Day 2 - Breakfast will be taken in the village before proceeding with our full days trek. The trek will following narrow trails frequently trodden by the local ethnic hill tribes in the area, the jungle is thick and pristine here. On route we will stop for lunch by a local waterfall which is a great spot to freshen up in the cool waters, Our final destination of the day will be the Shan village at Mae Mae where you will spend the second night. The night will be spent in relative comfort in the Tree House Village, this timber and bamboo construction clings to the hill side high above the valley below and affords great views over the forested valley below, a truly stunning spot to spend the night! Dinner will be prepared for you by the local Shan villages

Overnight - Tree House Village

Day 3 - We will take breakfast at the Tree house Village and then the guide will escort you to Mae Mae village school to see where and how the local hill tribe kiddies get educated. Most of the children board (sleep) at the school as their home villages are too far to make the journey to and from the school everyday! Following our school visit we continue the trek for around two hours to our pick up point where we will board the vehicle and make the short drive to the cycle starting point. After lunch we will bike the flat river valley plain amongst the rice paddies and and tracks which follow irrigation channels, some of the route will be on unpaved tracks and some on paved road. Our final destination of the day will be the imposing Ban Den Temple, before making the 1 hour drive back to Chiang Mai and transfer to your hotel
