Chiang Mai Trekking

I really enjoyed 3 days Chiang Mai Trekking. This was one of my unforgettable experience.

While trekking experience the subsistence life of the hilltribes Typically, a trek will last between three and five days and can include fun activities such as elephant riding and skiff rafting down rivers. Of course, there will be quite a bit of walking – sometimes uphill! A backpack (or better still a daypack) with limited clothing is needed, plus a sleeping bag and warm jacket during the winter months. The routes are usually designed to take in several of the different hill tribe villages, allowing you to familiarise yourself with several of these unique and colourful ethnic minority groups. They include the Hmong, Karen, Mein, Lisu, Akkha and Paduang.

One of the main draws to Northern Thailand is the trekking in Chiang Mai province and the surrounding areas. Discover the jungles, mountains and hill tribes around Chiang Mai on a hill tribe trek. Whether it is a single or multi day trek we have something to suit everybody. Maybe you just want to trek through the jungle or maybe you really want to get away from the crowds we have something to suit. We can combine most treks with other activities such as elephant riding, whitewater rafting , mountain biking and bamboo rafting.

Chiang Mai is the main centre from which to organise trekking, and almost every guesthouse offers the activity. Some guesthouses double as tour and trekking companies, or at least claim to but might be acting as agents. In Chiang Mai numerous trekking companies have small offices in the tourist areas of the city, such as the Night Bazaar, Loi Kroh road and down Moon Muang, alongside the moat’s eastern flank. Trekking can also be arranged from the small town of Pai, a popular alternative.

Chiang Dao Area, north of Chiang Mai is mountainous, has two vast national parks, elephant centres, an abundance of natural beauty, and is home to various ethnic groups (hilltribes). All the essential elements for good treks and tours.
