Itinerary

1st Day

Leaving at 09:00 from Pai, we will drive one hour to reach the trekking trail. We will start walking upstream along the Lang river, through one of the most beautiful mixed deciduous forest in Northern Thailand: Teak wood forests, Indian Mahoganies and various species of bamboo.
As we take a break for a basket lunch in the middle of the jungle, the guide will show you some survival skills using a bamboo and a machete. Then, we will walk up hill again, observing plants, flowers, insects and birds until we reach a remote Red-Lahu village close to the Thai-Burmese border.
We will settle in a traditional bamboo house built on teak stilts and covered with a thatched roof. After a refreshing shower you will have time to visit the village.

If you wish, you can assist your guide and learn how to cook a delicious meal on a wood fire. The convivial sit-on-floor diner will be the occasion to talk about the culture and history of the Lahu people and share some songs with the children, then you will slide into your mosquito net for the night.

2nd Day

After a filling breakfast you will be ready to hike 3 hours to one of the main Karen villages in the region; walking through different kinds of forests and following mountain ridges, we will arrive at the Karen village for lunch. After a walk through the village observing the children playing and the women weaving clothes for the family, we will proceed with a one hour elephant ride (optional) or walk down to the bamboo raft pier.

There, according to your choice, we can walk or experience the navigation on a bamboo raft (optional)

The same kind of boats were already used on this river by the Lawa people, the first population recorded in this area around 800 BC; the trip will take you to the entrance of a huge limestone cave which is the result of 200 millions years of erosion by the river. The Lawa people used some of the galleries as primitive habitation and have left some traces of their civilization. We will have a delicious barbecue lunch at the cave's restaurant before the visit, then we will drive back to your hotel in Pai.
(Starting early in the morning, we can be on time to reach the last transportation leaving to Chiang Mai)
