Jungle Trek with overnight at a hilltribe (2 Days)

Day 01
We drive to Mae Wang. Here we visit the local market and then go to a Shan village where we have lunch. Next we walk to a Karen village.. During a trek there are seldom or never flat parts in the route. One of our guides always says "same same Holland" when asked about the route of that day but he has never been to the Netherlands. The trails that we hike on are used by local people. Sometimes the path is overgrown and the guide with his knife must work. We walk through close woods, open patches, plantations of mountain people and sometimes along or through rivers. If you want, you can hire a porter to carry your luggage. At the end of the afternoon you will arrive in the mountain village. We recommend not to wait until sunset to prepare your sleeping area, many villages do not yet have electricity. The guide will focus on preparing the meal. You will be amazed at the tasty meals in these primitive conditions. It's nice to walk in and get in touch with the people. After dinner everyone is at the host family and hands and feet are used for the most beautiful conversations. If weather permits we can sometimes make a campfire. Maybe there's someone who has a guitar. The people in the villages sleep very early because they want to make the most of the daylight. They get up very early. We stay in one of the houses of the Karen tribe, these people have come to Thailand from Burma

Day 02
Your night's rest will be a lot less than you are used to because of the primitive way of sleeping and all kinds of sounds of the village around you like crowing cocks and roaring pigs. However, an experience to never forget. We continue on our way to the meeting point where our car will pick us up to bring us to the starting point of the raft trip. We will spend about 1 hour on the river. After lunch we go back to Chiang Mai where we arrive in the afternoon.
