3 hr Waterfall Trek

Trip Code: T3


Round trip to a beautiful waterfall


 

This 3-hour trekking adventure to a waterfall is a nice way to see the jungle and cool off in the water. The trek itself is about 1.6 km through the jungle to a 10 metre high waterfall.

We then take a break here so you can go for a swim so it’s a good idea to be change into your swimming attire at the camp before you start the hike. The 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!

Trekking Chiang Mai is perfect to add onto our Whitewater Rafting or ATV adventures

Awe inspiring trek!


This amazing 14km hike has 600m of elevation gain and a 600m elevation 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 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.

 

This section has stunning views and the road gives a nice reprieve from the steep uphill. The road section is about 2 km long before ducking back into single track for the rest of the trip. You also will pass an area where monks come to meditate in caves and where the village gets it name.

 

This next section of 2.5 km continues to traverses the mountainside between two villages. You will see hand farmed fields and hand harvested areas. There’s lots of shade from the lychee orchards, coffee farms and the middle of it has some nice old growth jungle when you cross a stream. This section ends at Huay Kukap; a great place for lunch, and a drink.

 

From here we walk down on single track passing another village hill tribe, and a couple of waterfalls before finally popping out at the Mae Taeng River. If you have made good enough time its a great place to cool off with a quick shower under the falls. This section is about 7 km and descends about 600 meters
