Hilltribe trek – review of authentic thai tours, chiang mai, thailand – tripadvisor gas city indiana restaurants

#############

For information of anyone else thinking of doing the trek, I will give you a detailed synopsis, to better inform you. I guess some of the tours must be outsourced, as I was picked up in a pick-up truck with ‘Namkhong Travel’ written on it. There were 10 of us on the truck, and it got a bit cramped. The driver is merely a taxi driver. I wouldn’t even know his name. We stopped at the Orchid Nursery and a local market, and all he did was tell us to get grade 6 science electricity unit test off and how long we had. No other info.

We arrived at the start point, with a lot of other tour groups – there seems to be a lot of tour operators providing the same experiences. We had lunch, were told to make sure we had water on us, and off we went with our tour guide. In fact, no one knew the name of our tour guide until we arrived at the village! It was just a case of follow him and stop when he felt like it. Not much interaction on Day 1.

It was just a case of follow him and stop when he felt like it. Not much interaction on Day 1. As for the difficulty, it is difficult. Being the rainy season, the ground is wet, and there are a few tricky parts. The first 30 mins was pretty good, and I felt ok. Then it got harder. We could see a village at the top of a mountain and someone asked if we were heading there. He said, ‘Yeah’ and laughed, so everyone 76 gas credit card account login thought he was kidding. He wasn’t kidding. For over an hour, it felt like we were just walking up and up, like flights of stairs. I at least had appropriate footwear. Some on the tour and had canvas shoes, like Converse or slip-on canvas shoes. They were certainly destroyed by the end. It took just a bit over 2 hours to get to the village. Then our guide just left us at the longhouse, and that was the last we saw him until dinner. The village itself is set up for tourists. There were about 3 or 4 tour groups staying at the village, in different longhouses. I walked around the village, and it certainly seemed like it was split in two – one side was the ‘real’ village, and the other being the one where tourists are kept. It was still nice to see the village, and the view was amazing. You literally are above the clouds. No electricity, but they do have running water and even a shower – cold water only. Day Two was the trek down the hill. A bit of light x men electricity mutant drizzle, and the wet ground made it an arduous exercise, with a few close shoves for losing your footing. Those in canvas shoes had next to no traction at all. All tour groups must do the same trail on the way down, with at least 10 different groups arriving m gastrocnemius at the waterfall (which looked amazing), and then everyone following the river to the end point. Lunch, then an elephant ride, which was a bit sad, seeing the riders hit the elephants they way they do. One of the riders was even hitting one of the elephants over the read quite hard, and pricking another elephant with a knife tip. After that, it was white water rafting and bamboo rafting. You will get soaking wet, so be prepared. Then the long trip back to Chiang Mai, in the back of the pick-up truck. The tour cost 1300 baht, so I was only expecting the basic, which is what I got. Personally, I would have probably appreciated a bit of a slower o gastronomico, longer trek, just so I could have enjoyed the environment we were walking through. I have read the good reviews for Authentic Thai Tours, so I hope this is just a one-off, and only because they combined with other tours for the trek. And it might be a consideration to ensure you have the right footwear. The suggestion was comfortable walking shoes or sandals. Although the locals can do it in flip-flops, I would not even consider wearing sandals. Good hiking shoes/boots with a bit of grip definitely required. More Show less

We booked this tour for Chiang Mai a while prior to us travelling. It was the best thing we did. Nikhom was quick at responding to emails with ideas of tours etc. At the airport his wife was waiting with a sign of our name and a photo so make sure you have a photo of those travelling easy to hand. His wife gave us some water and a free return transfer to our hotel. Nikhom picked us up early in his 4×4 and did we need it!! In one day we went elephant trekking, trekked in the jungle to see a waterfall, white water rafting, bamboo rafting (which nearly sank), Tiger Kingdom and the orchid farm. So tiring but highly recommended we would never have seen this mp electricity bill payment online jabalpur otherwise. En route Nikhom stopped for fruit from a local stall and after speaking to him about my girl friend’s mosquito bite gas stoichiometry worksheet he stopped and got us some herbal balm – very kind of him. Nikhom recommended for our second day that we visit the Doi Suthep temple at night to see the monks praying. This we did and it was fabulous, when else would you get to see monks praying and Chiang Mai city from so high up at night? Our 2 day tour with Nikhom was the highlight of our trip. His tours are tailored and he is such a nice man who looks after his clients with the upmost respect and courtesy. If you book any tour with him you will see more than others that is a certainty. If we were here longer we would have booked another tour. Book it – you will love it!!
