From here we go to the caves of Chiang Dao, with its beautiful white marble statues from Burma. After lunch we continue by pick-up truck through light jungle to an Akha and Lisu village. The terrain here is mountainous and offers a magnificent view. From here we walk to a Palong village where you spend the night. Dinner is cooked by the guide.
