  • Experience beautiful northern Thailand
  • Take a river bath with the elephants
  • Bamboo rafting on the river
  • Jungle trekking
  • Swimming at a waterfall
  • Meeting the Karen minority


The very best way to learn more about how the locals (especially Karen minorities) live in northern Thailand is to spend two days with them and spend a night there.

Their life is simple and strongly based on traditions. It's not only interesting to be part of it for a while, but also fun, because you're going to do a lot of crazy things here. Tell me: how many times have you fed an elephant or sat on a bamboo raft?

Besides a jungle trek through the Mae Wang region, a few visits to minority villages and a hike to where your bamboo rafting starts, you will also go to the Mae Wang waterfall (and yes, you can swim there). But for many, the highlight is helping feed the elephants and bathing with these special animals.

What to bring. A small backpack, tissues/toilet paper, some money for drinks, sturdy (hiking) shoes, swimwear, a towel, insect repellent, sunburn, a rain jacket (in the rainy season), dry clothes, toothbrush, warm clothes (for evenings and nights).

On the evening before this tour, the guide will drop by your hotel in Chiang Mai around 19.00 - 19.30 to give more information about the tour.

This trek is done in a group of up to 12 people.
