My name is Mit, I am from the Karen Hilltribe in Northern Thailand, myself and my brothers, Sak, Yod, Jojo and Det have grown up in the jungle and know everything about the rainforests and jungles of the North. We don't do your typical hikes, instead, we take you on a Karen hilltribe style jungle walk, creating your own path, immersing yourself in the forest, and getting to know the local culture. If you're looking to get away from the tourist experience and explore nature like a true native, then join us in Doi Inthanon National Park. We are all licensed trekking guides.

A special tour: Hike with locals from a highland village through wonderful forest and picturesque agricultural areas. Have a great picnic lunch served on banana leaves at a viewpoint high on a ridge then trek down into the valley past waterfalls and an elephant camp to their home village and a celebratory beer. This is not a cake walk, the trek is moderate to severe, as is the transit to/from Chiang Mai in a semi-open utility vehicle. You will know that you’ve completed a tough full day trip but it was worth it.

Notre guide Tin nous a fait passer une super journée dans la jungle thaïlandaise. Prévenant (il adapte le repas selon les régimes, il attend les retardataires pendant la randonnée), sympathique, il partage avec nous ses connaissances des plantes et de l'environnement. C'est une expérience que nous n'aurions pas pu faire tous seuls, nous la recommandons pour sortir des sentiers battus de Chiang Mai.

I enjoyed this jungle trekking so much. Tin has great knowledge on plants and herbs, so if you listen to him carefully you can get some ideas how Karen people live in the mountain. I choosed 'medium' difficulty course and I met lovely friends here. Because of them, I was able to experience the most precious time in Chiang Mai. Thank you all.

We had a perfect time. The hike was really enjoyable, not too hard but still never boring. We could ask any question and we learned a lot about the nature. The food we had as lunch was tasty and we ate it with a beautiful view. Just make sure to bring a hoodie or a jacket as the ride in the morning was quite cold.

This was an amazing experience! The local guides showed us trails that we wouldn’t have been able to discover on our own. From the delicious lunch with a great view to swimming next to a waterfall, the whole experience felt magical and I would highly recommend it to any nature lovers who are visiting Chiang Mai. Best day trip ever!
