DETAILED DESCRIPTION

This three-day Tribal Chiang Mai itinerary may be short in length, but certainly not in adventure or culture. Enjoy a rare glimpse into different communities dotting Thailand’s beautiful Northern mountainside. With rafting, trekking and relaxing in store - you can have it all!

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Chiang Mai

The guide and driver will meet you at your hotel early this morning. Drive to the largest Hmong community in Northern Thailand where very few visitors frequent. Along the way, stop and visit the Tribal Museum for an introduction to hilltribes in the area. Enjoy the scenic mountain route, passing vegetable plantations and farms belong to the Hmong hilltribes. Make stops to meet the locals in the Baan Mae Khi and Nong Hoi Mai villages, plus a few more, before enjoying lunch with a view of the lowlands. The last stop of the day is at the Elephant Poo Poo Paper Camp. Elephant dung is literally turned into paper at this environmentally-friendly location! Return to your hotel in Chiang Mai for the evening.

DAY 2: Hilltribe Village

Start your adventurous day off with a ride in a 4X4 luxury vehicle to Chiang Dao. The first stop is at a local market where you can learn about the ingredients used to make the food that will fuel your trek. Continue onward to Phrao where you will start a 2-hour trek uphill towards the Karen village, the tribe famous for their neck-stretching tactics. Continue your trek on a relatively easy journey to the Palong Village Pang Daeng Nai. Meet your host family and settle in for the evening. You can learn to cook with the host family, relax, and explore the village.

DAY 3: Departure

Wake up in nature at your local host’s home and enjoy a tasty breakfast prepared hot and fresh just for you. Depart the village and drive back to Chiang Dao. Step off land and onto an authentic bamboo raft along the gentle rapids for a scenic river voyage. Disembark and have lunch before visiting the expansive Chiang Dao Cave. While less than 1 km of passage can be visited, over 2 km has been surveyed and about 11 km of additional passage is believed to exist. Return to Chiang Mai for the evening, stopping at an orchid farm en-route to enjoy the fragrant bloom, a sweet end to a short and fulfilling trip.
