3 Day Tuk Tuk Adventure In Northern Thailand3 Day Tuk Tuk Adventure In Northern Thailand
A stunning Tuk Tuk Adventure taking you deep into the heart of the mountains and Hill Tribe communities around Chiang Mai.
This is a great experience to learn more about the Tuk Tuks, how they work and, if you’d like, the opportunity to have a quick go yourself!
You’ll the start the journey by heading through fantastic winding lanes passing through small farming communities (think classic SE Asia photo ops) and up and visiting stunning remote (and almost never visited) Temples, and at one of them we’ll even make a small blessing for the adventure ahead.
You’ll have a simple but hearty lunch at a great local restaurant and then start to head up into the serious mountains. On the way you’ll stop to take the short hike to a forest waterfall and explore a tiny Karen community and then you continue to wind up the hairpin bends to your overnight destination of a remote Karen village where you’ll camp and have an incredible authentic ‘Hill Tribe’ experience.
Once you’ve arrived at the campsite you’ll have a traditional Karen greeting and then have the opportunity to explore the local village and meet the ‘elders’ and learn about their community, culture and way of life.
In the evening you’ll learn how to cook jungle style with an open fire and lessons from our Karen hosts before spending the night under the stars – a proper Thailand adventure.
NOTE – the tents are actually very comfortable with mattresses / cushions / pillows / blankets etc and there are ‘Western’ style toilets and a hot shower available!
