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.

The night will be spent in relative comfort in the Tree House Village, this timber and bamboo construction clings to the hill side high and affords great views over the forested valley below, a truly stunning spot to spend the night!

Day 3 - We will take breakfast at Tree house Village and then the guide will escort you to the local village school to see where and how the local hill tribe kiddies get educated.
