Hilltribe Trek&Bamboo Rafting in the Chiang Mai Mountains
- Full Day
Our day starts early in the morning when you get picked up from the hotel for a transfer north of Chiang Mai. First stop on the day will be a visit to the local Mae Malai market. A market on the outskirts of Chiang Mai well known as various Hill tribes in the area flock here to buy and sell their food products.
Your guide will take you around the market and show you a variety of different vegetables and fruits you might have never seen or heard of before. After an insightful market visit we travel further to the remote village of Baan Thong Youa by 4x4. This will be the starting point of our trek for the morning. Hike through the lush nature while getting an insight in some local knowledge about the jungle from your guide. Passing through different cultural Hill tribes living in the area as we venture further into the jungle. Soak up the fresh air and stunning views along the way. The Hill tribes who used to be famous for their opium trade have now changed their
ways to crafts, farming and coffee plantations, get an insightful story telling about the past and the present as we interact with the locals we meet. Local lunch will be eaten somewhere along the way in natural settings.

After about a 2,5-hour trek, we reach a village called Baang Phong Ngan, a village inhabited by the Lahu Hill tribe. Here we can communicate with some villagers who are going about their daily tasks. This village is also the start where we change legs for bamboo. We hop onto our floating raft and float down the magical beautiful river. Watch your paddle man working to keep you safe through the corners and sometimes, if lucky, we catch some bathing buffalo’s on the way. The level of the water determines our
rafting time but it usually takes around 1 and a half hours. After arriving at our boat landing point, the support vehicle will be waiting for us again to bring us back to Chiang Mai city. (L)
