The trip Northern Thailand Hike & Homestays starts from and ends in Chiang Mai. It is a trekking tour that takes 8 days taking you through Chiang Mai, Mae Hong Son and PA Bong in Thailand. Northern Thailand Hike & Homestays is a guided small group trip that 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.

“We spent 13 days trekking in the Annapurna Region and had a great time! The group leader and porters were awesome, the tents / eco lodges were in excellent condition and the food was so delicious. We really enjoyed our trip and would recommend World Expeditions to anyone looking for an adventure.”
