Trekking & nature tours
During a trek in Thailand you will walk through mountains. Though the walking speed is never high, treks can be physically challenging. A sense for adventure, a good health and the ability to walk a few hours per day are necessary. You will sleep in tents or hilltribe village huts in sometimes primitive conditions (on a small mattress, no electricity, no running water). Sanitary conditions are simple (sometimes sitting behind a bamboo tree). These conditions will not be seen as a challenge by everyone. But you will be rewarded by the adventure, the physical exercise, the magnificence of the nature and the contact with the local people. Our shorter treks are not that strenuous and well suited for families with young children. Our longer treks (Lisu, Burma) can be exhausting and are not suited for children.
Adventurous tours that include mountain walks, elephant rides, rafting down a river and overnight stays in hilltribe villages, guided by an experienced, English-speaking guide. Our 2-day trek is ideal if you have limited time or do not wish to make a long jungle trek. Our 3-day trek is a little more heavy duty with some tough climbs in it. Nights are in primitive dormitory type-rooms. These tours are suitable for everyone in good health, reasonable condition and a sense of adventure.

Only an hour's drive north of Chiang Mai, nestled in a rich green valley that time seems to have forgotten, is a Lisu tribal community that has managed to hold onto its cultural origins while benefiting from the effects of responsible tourism. There's a tranquil and soothing atmosphere surrounding the settlement that is staffed and managed by a Lisu tribe. Built in traditional style with an eye for Western comforts, the lodges overlook the lush fields of the valley and serve as your base-camp for a magical blend of adventure, relaxation and insight. Not suited for children. See the detailed programs.
