Experience the Karen hilltribe way of life. Cultural immersion, Hilltribe Homestay, Nature & Scenery, Educational, Agricultural, Hilltribe schools & Village handicrafts.

With many touristic hilltribe villages in Thailand, it can be difficult to visit villages in an uncommercialised way. The Karen villages we will visit on this tour are non-touristic and we are the only group to visit there. As we only visit in small private groups, the experience is kept highly authentic and personalised. Enjoy an intimate cultural immersion experience with the Karen hill tribe, learn about and share daily life in the village, in a natural and responsible way.

Sample Activities
– Optional short trek through forest and farmland
– Visit waterfall
– Visit village school
– Weaving cotton on a back-strap loom
– If you’re lucky you may catch a village celebration such as a spirit festival or wedding

Tour's Location

Chiang Mai, Thailand


- This tour starts+ends in Chiang Mai. We can pick up+drop off at your hotel/airport/train station in Chiang Mai
- Pick up time is 8am and we finish in the late afternoon. The timing is flexible though, please contact us about this
- The itinerary is an outline only, and is flexible. This provides the opportunity to explore local life along the way
- We follow village life, rather than expecting village life to follow our expectations. So we cannot guarantee what activities you will see in the village. But you will have the chance to meet villagers, be invited into their homes and to see how they live in an ethical and respectful way
- We focus on authentic experiences, so we are the only group to visit these Karen hill tribe villages
- *Optional visit to Baan Tong Luang village (where you can see the Long neck women, Palong, Lahu, Hmong, Lisu hill tribes). This is a touristic village, but it provides an educational and all-round insight into a variety of hill tribe groups, which would otherwise be difficult to see in 1 day. You can decide about this on the day, with your guide
