Classic
Once upon a time, Northern Thailand was off-the-radar; the sort of place only true-blue adventurers knew about. But now that the secret is out, its once-isolated hilltribe villages are swamped with tourists. For the real thing, though, you've gotta go deeper. Join us as we trek further into the hills to rice fields and lush valleys far from the crowds, learn about traditional medicine from a village shaman, and explore the deep cave of Tham Lod by bamboo raft. The magic of Northern Thailand is still out there; you just have to know where to find it. Now, you do.

Day 2 - Chiang Mai/Ban Pha Mon

Drive from Chiang Mai to the trailhead. Trek through farmland and bamboo and teak forests. Learn about bush food and medicinal plants. Enjoy lunch en route before continuing through rice fields and valleys to reach the first village of a Lahu tribe. Assist with food prep and cooking, learn about weaving and embroidery or check out a local Lahu massage. Tucked away in the hills of northern Thailand is where the most colourful and unchanged traditional communities can be found. Trek through forests and rural terrains to visit some of these diverse hilltribe villages; often, each will have their own unique language, clothing style, and belief system that differs significantly from those of neighbouring tribes. You are well looked after by your CEO and local guides, who take the responsibility of preparing all meals and carrying food supplies.

Day 3 - Ban Pha Mon/Ban Muang Pam

Trek between villages, over farmlands and grasslands, and ascend to the ridge line. Learn about bush medicine and seasonal fruits as you make your way to the lunch stop.
