Chiang Rai 2 Day Tour: Description

There are a number of trips available that will take you to the famous hill tribes of Chiang Rai. Tiger Trails, however, offers a far more immersive, authentic experience; with a firm focus on respect for the tribes and of learning more about their unique way of life.

Our two day adventure begins with a visit to the Hill Tribe Museum, which serves as the perfect introduction to the area and its people; before boarding a traditional Thai long-tail boat and setting sail down the Kok River.

After disembarking, our travel experience becomes just that bit more incredible, as we board our next ‘vehicle’; your very own elephant! These gentle creatures will take us on a trail through the jungle, where we can enjoy the sights and sounds of the forest and do some serious wildlife spotting, from a rather higher viewpoint than usual!

Our elephants take us to Yao village, where our guide will tell you all about the native people and their lives, including an insight into their beautiful traditional clothing, before starting on the first part of our trek on foot, to the Akha village. After a spot of lunch, we continue to another tribal village (Red Lahu) where we will stop for the night and have a chance to talk with the local people and help them make the traditional dinner.

We will stay overnight in a local village house and after a deliciously hearty breakfast to set us up for the day, we will begin our journey further into the heart of the jungle, where we will visit the spectacular Huay Mae Sai waterfall and enjoy a refreshing swim whilst we’re there!

Your adventure will conclude with a visit to another Akha village, with a stop for lunch along the way, before we finally return to our driver to take us back to our hotels.

Join Tiger Trail for an incredible voyage into the heart of the Chiang Rai jungle and for an informative, fascinating insight into some of the most unique people in Thailand, for an experience that promises to be the highlight of your holiday!
