Description

DESCRIPTION

On the first day you will be picked up at 8.30am from Chiang Rai. It is a short drive through green hills and paddy fields. During this we will explain to you a bit about our hill tribe’s cultural traditions. Afterwards we will take you on a trek to our hill tribe village. As soon as we arrive we will serve you our delicious local food. In the afternoon we will tell you all about our traditions and daily life and we will show you around. At night you will join us for dinner and perhaps we have our traditional dance.

On the second day you will join us in our daily activities. This can be digging, planting, harvesting or weeding. It will depend on the weather what can be done.

On your final day you will trek back to where you will be picked up. On the way we will prepare a bamboo lunch, which we can enjoy in the middle of nature. We will visit the Wat Pra Kaew temple and local market and bring you back to Chiang Rai at the end of the day.

You will stay in a bamboo/grass/wood hut with cold water, shower (bucket or hose), Asian squat toilet, mattress on the floor and limited (or no) electricity. Unmarried couples must sleep separately in the same house (usually in the same room, but not together).

By attaining this trek you will directly protect and maintain the cultures and traditions of our local hilltribe communities, in the Mae Yao area of Chiang Rai district. The money we receive from is put back into the communities directly, and indirectly, helping to sustain the local economy.

Price includes:

  • All main meals, from lunch on day 1 to lunch on day 3
  • Drinking water is provided by the guide
  • Home stay
  • Activities
  • Pick-up and drop-offs included (for locations within Chiang Rai). There is a fuel surcharge for locations outside the city limits.

Price excludes:

  • Other drinks
  • Personal expenses

Enjoy your trip with our hill tribe community

We are a hill tribe community living in the Northern part of Thailand. Our community exists of around 30 families. We mainly live off of the vegetables we cultivate, but besides that we are very good hunters. In order to earn a bit more money we asked the Mirror Foundation to help us promote and organize our unique hill tribe experience. I would like to invite you to join us in our daily life and have a unique local experience.
