Trek in Thailand, visit Chiang Mai and explore hilltribe villages

Pull on your walking boots, stretch those leg muscles and take to the hills on a classic Intrepid trek through Thailand’s hilltribe country. Walk along winding jungle tracks and through green fields, observing what life is really like for villagers in this remote area, and sleep in traditional bamboo huts at night. Make friends with welcoming tribespeople as you hike through this remote region where each tribe has its own distinct language, style of dress and religion and learn the secrets to jungle survival from those who know best. Stay on a few extra days to explore ancient temples in Chiang Mai - there are over 300! If you’re after a short city escape and the chance to experience the real Thailand away from the tourist crowds, then this trip is just the ticket.

  • -Experience the temple-studded city of Chiang Mai


Arrive in Chiang Mai and get a sense of the unique flair of this northern city, a place that is rich in traditional culture and overflowing with local eateries that serve up some of the most delicious cuisine in South East Asia. Board a Songthaew and head out into the hills, spending two days trekking through tropical jungle, stopping at remote waterfalls and passing through friendly hilltribe villages that each possess their own distinct languages, clothing and beliefs. At night, join the locals for freshly prepared meal and sleep in traditional bamboo huts- falling asleep to the sounds of the jungle and awakening to the sounds of village life.
Return to Chiang Mai, where the hilltribe adventure comes to a close. Perhaps stay on after the trip to check out a range of sights in this much-loved city - including taking a ride to the dramatic hilltop temple of Doi Sutep for a stunning view over the city.
