Days 1-2: Hill Tribe trek|
Leave your hotel in the morning and head north from Chiang Mai in a Songthaew (an open pick-up truck) with your fellow travelers. After a quick stop for lunch head on foot into the tropical forest for a 2 to 3 hours walk to the village where you will spend the night. Explore the traditional village and help prepare the evening meal. After eating your evening meal with the villagers, retire to a traditional-style bamboo hut.
For the next couple of days, hike through forest and rural terrain and visit some of the Hill Tribe villages. The villages are filled with ethnic minorities that fill the hills of northern Thailand, and many of them have retained their own languages and belief systems which they have held through the centuries. Interact with people of the hill tribes and learn about their cultures and way of life. Learn about elephants and how they live, and have a chance to ride one through the jungle.
Day 3: Chang Mai
Water-levels permitting, jump aboard a bamboo raft (surcharge) for a trip down the river, or hike through the tropical forests to one of the local villages. After lunch, you will be met by a Songthaew and driven back to Chiang Mai.
