Start and end in Chiang Mai, the trip "Northern Thailand Hike & Homestays" is a guided trekking trip that takes 8 days. You will travel through PA Bong, Mae Hong Son and Chiang Mai in Thailand. "Northern Thailand Hike & Homestays" is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

This trek offers travellers an unparalleled insight into the rich biodiversity, cultures and customs of Thailand's northern hinterlands. Join us on this remarkable adventure exploring the pristine forests of Thailand's northern hinterlands near the border with Myanmar. Reviving an ancient trade route, the program offers travellers an unparalleled insight into the region's rich biodiversity, cultures and customs. Our journey starts from Khun Khan National Park with its lush jungles and unspoilt forests along the little known Old Elephant Trail. This trek offers travellers an unparalleled insight into the rich biodiversity, cultures and customs of Thailand's northern hinterlands but with the construction of a road in the 1950s, the trail was abandoned. After years of solitude, the trail is now the perfect route for adventurers and nature enthusiasts alike. Traversing over ridgelines and through forest covered hills and mist-enveloped mountains, travellers will trek through some of Thailand's most remote natural areas and be rewarded with sweeping panoramas of lush forests and wildlife-spotting opportunities in the mountains. Evenings on the trek are spent amongst the locals providing an opportunity to learn about traditional culture and a life style unchanged for generations.

“Our holiday with WE surpassed our expectations. The professional competence of our guide Balram, confidence of our Sherpa guides and the excellent meals were highlights. Our group size of nine worked well together and the clear skies every day were a bonus.”

“Kenji was a great guide going out of his way to make sure we all had a great holiday. He spent time with everyone, made great suggestions for our free nights dinners and ensured that the time we spent in Japan after our trip was well informed and planned and he made great suggestions on where to go and how to deal with luggage etc.”
