In the morning we drive to Mae Wang, south of Chiang Mai and make a stop at a local market and from here you go on a trek through the mountains to visit hill tribe villages. The first stop is a Shan village where we have lunch. After lunch, you walk through dense forest, open areas, plantations owned by mountain people and sometimes along or through rivers. At the end of the afternoon, you will arrive in a Karen mountain village where you spend the night in one of their houses and experience their lifestyle and food, an experience to never forget.
Your night’s rest will be a lot less than you are used to because of the primitive way of sleeping and all the sounds of the village around you, such as crowing cocks and roaring pigs. Not something you experience every day. After breakfast, we continue on our route to the meeting point where our car will pick us up to bring us to the starting point of the raft trip. The rafts are made from bamboo, by connecting long bamboo sticks to each other. You will descend the river at a relaxing pace, enjoying the natural surroundings and beautiful mountain views to the point where our truck is waiting to transport us back to Chiang Mai. Here your tour ends.
