Day 1: Mountain trek and overnight at homestay (L, D)

Pass By: Active Thailand Day Trips, Chiang Mai
Pick up at your hotel in Chiang Mai city (within the second ring road radius)

Pass By: Mae Taeng District Office
Pickup (8:30am) from your accommodation in Chiang Mai before driving north to escape the city and experience the beautiful Chiang Dao area. Along the way we will stop at a local market where your local guide can introduce the ingredients they will use for cooking delicious Thai meals over the next few days. Our next destination is a peaceful valley further north and the start of the trek. After a short briefing, we’ll set off on an hour’s trek and you will have your first close encounter with Northern Thailand’s natural environment. Next we make a lunch stop at a peaceful fruit orchard before continuing our hike, gaining altitude and a noticeable change of flora. We will cross a large tea plantation under the shade of tall mature trees and eventually arrive at a local homestay to spend the night. Your guides will cook a tasty Thai dinner for tonight, then you have the evening to relax and soak up your new surroundings.
Today’s hike is approximately 4 to 5 hours, mostly ascending.

Meals included:
• Lunch: Pack lunch or local restaurant
• Dinner: Thai food dinner prepared by your guides in the village
Accommodation included: Stay in a Lahu village perched on the mountain top. Rustic dormitory with shared toilet facilities.

Day 2: Our longest trekking day (approximately 6 hour's walk) through scenic landscape

Pass By: Mae Taeng District Office
Wake up to the mountain melodies and enjoy breakfast with locally grown tea or coffee from the surrounding plantation. Today you are in for a challenging day through a variety of jungle and criss-crossing trails. We will follow mountain ridges under the jungle canopy, with occasional clearings offering breathtaking panoramic views of the lower valley. Around noon, refuel with a packed lunch in a nice spot along the trail. The afternoon trek will bring more bamboo forest, shade under tall jungle trees and a refreshing river crossing. The last climb for the day will take us to our overnight destination, a tiny Lahu village where you can interact with local people and learn a bit about their way of life. Once again, your guide will prepare Thai cuisine for your dinner while you put your feet up after a long day! Tonight you will be staying in basic accommodation (dormitory house) and be able to get a feel for village life.
