Your guide will meet you at the hotel at about 0830. Our Huay Nam Dang family trekking begins. Huay Nam Dang is a national park to the northwest of Chiang Mai. Everyone who goes on trekking has to report at the police so that will be our first stop.
Our second stop will be at Mae Malai where your guide will do his shopping for the coming days. He will take you along and will explain about the different ingredients he will be using for dinner.
Continue to the Mork Fah waterfall where you can have a swim and relax. Enjoy a local lunch at a roadside restaurant. After lunch we will continue to the Pong Deuad Hot Springs where we will stop briefly. Here we will start trekking. We will trek for about 4 hours through the forest to the Karen village where we will spend the night.
After arrival in the village the children will participate in activities in the village. These will vary from picking fruit, collecting vegetables for dinner, feeding the pigs and taking part in sports with children from the village.
The parents can relax, explore the village or learn some Thai cooking by helping the guide prepare the dinner. He can explain you about the herbs and ingredients he uses. After dinner your guide will take you to one of the village houses where you will meet some of the villagers.
