In the top ! Excursion in the middle of nature, with a guide (Mr TAN) pedagogue and full of humor. Break in the village, in peace, and with a meal prepared with care. Discovery and wonder on the program. Don't forget the mosquito repellent. Only problem, the hike is a little short, I almost remained unsatisfied and would have continued 1h or 2 more. Finally, the road is long from Chiang Mai.

Very well organised hiking with excellent guider named Sap - funny, a lot of interesting details about nature, culture not only Thai people but something about northern neighbours. I didn’t read details and thought that is a at least 30% demanding hiking so for me enthusiasts this was easy walk. People in group were fully distanced, awkward feeling - in one moment I asked myself- why they go in group instead of individual guided trip - but that’s nothing with organisation.

This trip was excellent. Our guide, Sap was knowledgeable, easy to chat with, his English was excellent and he shared interesting information about the various plants, fruit, herbs etc. We had a great lunch at a mountain lodge with amazing views. Finished off joining in on the new year's festivities in a hill tribe village of the Lahu people. Great day, don't hesitate to book! Thanks Sap
