We did the 2 day/1night trekking - elephants - rafting. The route is very laid back and off the beaten track, and yes, not a stroll in the park... but we weren’t looking for that. Lunches were lighter, a good thing since you must walk...More
This tour is not for the weak! The first day consists of 3 hours trecking up hill which involved a lot of sweating so make sure you bring plenty of water and sturdy trainers as there are some hairy bits at timee. Once we arrived...More
Did the 2 day 1 night trek and loved it for the most part. The trek was challenging (don’t think I’ve ever sweated more in my life) but that’s what you sign up for. Bamboo rafting was decent. Wasn’t too bothered about the elephant sanctuary...More
The trekking part of my tour was amazing, however be warned that a lot of it is brutally uphill and you should therefore have a certain level of physical fitness, also make sure you bring plenty of water. However, the tough hike is rewarded by...More
Loved the hike! It was really tough though so you do need to be fit ! A lot is uphill and in sun and you hike with all your stuff for the overnight stay. Our guide chai was great and really informative and helpful!
This one-day trekking to the Mae Taeng district one hour north of Chiang Mai was a treat. Our English-speaking guide (Mr Wit) was helpful and kind, and he paid close attention to safety and individual trekker needs on this sometimes strenuous hike. Perfectly executed! Great...More

Sorry, client. We don’t offer riding. The one who can ride them are mahouts who look after them. Even if we ride them some, it’s not mean we hurt them.
Well took this trek thinking I was a pretty fit 64 and all started out well but around the half way mark, not sure how far maybe 10 klm I’m up and down mountainous terrain I began to wilt, though enjoying the views and information...More
DO NOT GO HERE if you care about the elephants well being.
The concept of this whole elephant rescue shelter is really nice. The sad thing is that they play on the tourists affection for the elephants and try to make you think you are...More

Dear client, so sorry if I didn't answer your email becuse I didn't receive them. For you glasses I let my guide check it again today. One of my colleague said you came here yesterday to check and she also asked a guide to find it around the waterfall, but he couldn't find it well because of it's heavy rain. So today she asked another guide (who is going today) to check it at the small house that you mentioned. Please ring us tonight about 19.00 pm to find it out that we can find it or not.
