2 Days 1 Night
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.
