Chiang Mai Trekking Tours

Combine elephant riding, white water rafting and bamboo rafting with energetic hikes through the most beautiful sceenery in Northern Thailand. My Chiang Mai trekking tours will take you to the best places and introduce you to the wonders of the flora and fauna as well as the traditional hilltribe peoples of this exciting part of our world.

The mountains and valleys surropunding Chiang Mai in northern Thailand are home to a variety of ancient hilltribe peoples that have lived the same way for centuries. Their hillside villages are a delight to discover and our well organised treks will get you there safely, with days filled with amazing views, the delights of the rich vegetation and the fascinating variety of animals and insects.

There are also adventures to be had as we experience white water rafting and journeys on the backs of the magestic and mighty elephants that have roamed here for centuries. On our Chiang Mai Trekking tours we will gently float along the calmer stretches of rivers on bamboo rafts relaxing to the gentle murmur of the jungle all around us before more energetic treks up the steep trails and along the verdent mountain valleys that have been traversed by the local people for generations.

The Mekong River

Depart from hotel at 8.30am with one and a half hour drive to the Elephant Camp in San Patong area.
