We will greet you at your hotel at 6:30 AM and travel to the small town of Thaton on the Thai - Myanmar (Burmese) border.
We then visit Wat Thaton Temple located on the mountain top with a spectular view of the surrounding mountains, Fang valley and the Mae Kok river snaking through the valley below. We will also go inside the beautiful Pagoda at the temple then go to a view point looking at the river flowing out of the mountain canyons in Myanmar (Burma).
The villagers are farmers and very poor. Many do not speak Thai and none of them speak English. They are our friends and very shy so do not like tour operators bring visitors to see them however they welcome us like family as we help them and respect their culture. There are a few culture and custom rules we must follow and your guide will explain them to you.
From the Lahu village we travel along roads with orange and lychee groves, Akha, Karen, Lisu and Lahu villagers working in their fields to a beautiful temple hot springs for a delicious Thai lunch
We then travel through hill tribe villages to meet our private long tail boat for the 2 hour journey through mountain canyons to Chiang Rai. There is a rest room half way along the journey should you need to stop. We might see hil tribe working on vertical sloped mountainsides, elephants bathing in the river and locals fishing in the river.
Long tail boat ride
The private van and driver will meet us in Chiang Rai and then Return to Chiang Mai and your hotel or your hotel in Chiang Rai.
Because we do only private tours and soft adventures we need to ask a few questions. Price depends on how many persons in your party.
