Chiang Dao Trip: Trekking, Elephants, Thai Cooking, Rafting & More | Description
Learn about the fascinating tribes of Northern Thailand and explore the spectacular landscape with one of Tiger Trail’s most exciting adventures!
Our experienced guide will take you through the wilderness of the jungle, past mountains and rivers, to the heart of the tribal community; where we will learn about the tribes of the area and discover more about their remarkable lives in the villages.
On the first day, we will make a stop at a traditional Thai market, where our guide will purchase some produce for the dinner; telling you all about each ingredient and why it is so special. We then visit an elephant camp, to get up close and personal with these iconic, good natured creatures, before taking a relaxing bamboo raft ride down the river.
After lunch in the jungle, we make our way to our overnight stop; by hiking to the remote Palong village of Pang Hoo, deep within the Northern Thai countryside. This fascinating tribe, originally from Myanmar, wear colourful clothing and they will introduce you to their culture; allowing you to explore their village and talk with them about their lives. Learn some traditional Thai cooking techniques by helping our guide prepare the dinner, and watch some of the local children perform a dance in this magical evening experience.
After a pleasant night in a local village house, we say farewell to the Palong people and begin our trek once more, heading to the Karen village of Thakilek. The Karen people are very different to the Palong, and offer an intriguing insight into a different tribal lifestyle.
We join our car to drive to the impressive cave of Chiang Dao, and to visit a local orchid nursery to see some of the stunning flowers that are indigenous to the area, before finally returning to our hotels.
