8Adventures offer Thailand’s best trekking tours,
learn about the jungle and nature in an amazing location near Chiang Mai. Take the opportunity to trek to a waterfall, slide down a natural slide, hike to a stunning vista and trek up a mountain to a Lahu Village. Experience bamboo forests, walk across streams and explore an area rich in biodiversity. The Mae Taeng Valley is a beautiful valley with a river running through the middle where we run our whitewater rafting tours. There are elephants, hundreds of species of birds and amazing plants and flowers.
We take a break at the waterfall so you can go for a swim, so it’s a good idea to change into your swimming attire at the camp before you start the hike. Your guide will point out flora and fauna along the way. We return back along the same track. If you’re a quick hiker and would like to go further past the waterfall we can do that as well. Highly recommended for families!
Next we have two longer treks, first our 6hr trek travels up the mountain to a Lahu Village. We’ll then walk down on track passing another village hill tribe, and waterfalls before finally popping out at the Mae Taeng River. This is about 7 km long.
Our other trekking adventure is an amazing endurance trek, 14km long and a 600m elevation gain and drop. This hike is full of adventure and not for those that want a casual stroll! It’s a tough hike. It climbs up out of the valley at a pretty steep grade, gaining 500 meters of elevation in 2.5 km This section meanders through a bamboo forest before finally reaching a 4×4 road that we use to traverse across the mountain to Baan Pha Daeng a Lahu Village hill tribe. Trekking is great every month of the year please inquire what the weather is like when you are booking or for more details for trekking in May, June, July, you can read this Trekking in June Article.
