Where you'll go
Day 1: Tuk Tuks, Temples And Hill Tribes
You’re adventure will start when our team picks you up in Chiang Mai city and transfers you to the Tuk Tuk training base in Mae Wang, around an hour away.
On arrival at our ‘base camp you’ll be introduced immediately to your Tuk Tuk and get started with the driver training training. This takes place on a dedicated track and will give you plenty of time to get used to your Tuk Tuk. They are pretty easy to drive but your guide will take everything nice and slowly making sure you’re feeling comfortable behind the wheel.
You then head off down winding rural lanes through small farming communities and to a remote mountain Temple where you’ll receive a blessing for the adventure ahead.
After an great northern Thai lunch you then head along more small roads high up into the mountains towards our overnight destination of a remote Karen Hill Tribe village. You’re camping here tonight in a clearing (don’t worry – there are showers and toilets available) to get a real mountain experience.
In the evening you’ll learn how to cook ‘jungle style’ over an open fire before enjoying swapping stories around the campfire and then spending a night under the starts. This really is a Thailand Adventure!
Day 2: Stunning Mountain Roads and Hill Tribe Communities
After breakfast you’ll explore the local area around the campsite and village before getting back into your Tuk Tuk and heading further into the foothills of Doi Inthanon, Thailand’s highest mountain. With plenty of stops to explore, this is an incredible journey through spectacular mountain scenery.
You’ll stop for a late lunch at a small roadside restaurant and then head on to the mountain community of Mae Khlang Luang where you’ll be staying overnight.
The accommodation is surrounded by mountains and rice terraces and is the perfect setting for the second night of you adventure. After ‘checking in’ there will be time to explore the village, see how the community live and try some of the freshest coffee around you’ll ever taste!
In the evening you’ll have a traditional Thai style BBQ overlooking the rice fields – perfect.
Day 3: Hiking, Waterfalls And Lunch In The Jungle
Your Tuk Tuk gets a break today as you head off on foot to explore the local forests and waterfalls.
The trek is ‘only’ around 5-6 km but takes you through fantastic scenery and eventually to a series of stunning waterfalls. You’ll have lunch in the forest and there’s also time to swim if you wish.
After lunch you’ll trek out of the forest and back to the village through the rice terraces. It’s then time to say goodbye to your trusty Tuk Tuk as you head back to Chiang Mai city by private minivan. You’ll arrive back at the Chiang Mai Gate Hotel around 4:30pm, a fully fledged member of The Tuk Tuk Club.
