Doi Inthanon National Park is the most popular national park in North Thailand. Within the park Thailand’s highest mountain is located: Doi Inthanon. The park boasts prolific birdlife as well as spectacular waterfalls. There are Hmong and Karen villages in the park. Doi Inthanon National Park can get very busy, especially in December and January, the cool months in North Thailand. We will do our best to avoid the crowds.
For Chiang Mai natives Doi Suthep is a sacred mountain. Wat Doi Suthep, the temple on the mountain, is one of the most popular attractions of North Thailand. The Doi Pui-Doi Suthep National Park offers great trekking, magnificent views and interesting tribal culture. The park is right on our doorstep and very easily accessible. Don’t miss out! We love Doi Suthep!

Trekking in Chiang Mai and Northern Thailand
We have been involved in trekking and ecofriendly outdoor activities in Northern Thailand for more than 25 years. In the early days trekking was one of the most popular activities for tourists. Trekking is about nature and people. It is about conservation and tradition. Our tours are as much about enjoying being in the outdoors as about meaningful encounters with the people who live in a natural environment. We believe that trekking is a rewarding and fascinating experience for everyone who is open to learn about different cultures and a lifestyle close to nature.Browse ChIANG MAI TREKS

TREKKING IN CHIANG MAI IS FOR EVERYONE
You don't need to be an Athlete
It is not easy to apply a scale of difficulty to our tours. Your own fitness is of importance but there are also outside influences that determine the difficulty of an activity. The weather is one. Rain can make an easy trail very difficult. It will also depend on your ability to handle the heat and humidity. Finally, wearing good shoes is essential.
1 Day trek, 2-Day trek or more. Up to you!
In one day you can get a glimpse of the beauty of Northern Thailand. A day trip usually includes considerable time in a vehicle. Most trekking areas are a bit outside of Chiang Mai.
For a more in-depth experience you should spend a night in the forest or in a village. For the diehards who want real adventure there are remote areas where you really have a back to nature feeling.
