3-Day Chiang Dao Mountain Trek
, Dec 2021
We had a really great time on our tour with Tan and Tri. They explained many of the plants along the way and let us taste many of them, they were problably the best part of the trip and a lot of fun to talk to! Due to Covid our route was changed a bit, but it was very beautiful nevertheless (check out the sunsets/sunrises!). First and Last day were about 2-3hrs of walking, the second day was a more challenging trek of about 17km/6hrs walking, so better pack light! Accomodations are simple but clean, be aware that showers are cold water only and maybe bring earplugs. The weather is perfect in winter, during the summer or rainy season it might get somewhat more difficult. All in all this was probably the best tour I have ever been on, the combination of great guides, great planning, good food and beautiful sights was perfect!

3 day Chiang Dao hike

Thanks to Tan and his assistant/ trainee, this was a great experience. The hike for me was very challenging but Tan made sure I was OK. The scenery was beautiful and I learned a lot about the mountain people and there way of life. The first overnight was picture perfect and peaceful. They even built a fire for us. The second night was a bit noisy with singing, dogs barking and roosters but enjoyable anyway. The food that Tan made was absolutely fantastic. This was a most enjoyable 3 days. My only negative is that communication with the company before the hike was not good.
Unforgettable experience

Great times with our guide Tan and trainee Mac! Tan knew a lot about the nature and once in a while he stopped to explain things, let us taste fruits etc. The hike itself was challenging at times but very do-able! First night homestay was great! Bring earplugs for the 2nd one (dogs/roosters)No Joke!

TOUR OPERATOR COMMENT: The above guest is referring to the overnight stay in the hill tribe villages. Dogs, roosters, and perhaps pigs are part of the life in the villages. It can be difficult to control the noise nuisances - So, yes, bring ear plugs!
Tolle Natur in Thailand

Tolle Tour durch die erhebungen in thailand. Unser guide war selbst local und nahm sich die zeit auch die Natur zu geniessen. Er war gleichzeitig ein sehr guter Koch.
