Detialed Overview of Jungle Trekking with 8Adventures

Thailand’s natural beauty shines throughout diverse environments that are the perfect antidote to city life. Our 8Adventures basecamp is located in the heart of the Mae Taeng valley, 45 kms north of Chiang Mai and is a great place to enjoy a one day trek. 

Let’s start with the basics of what you can expect when hiking in the jungle! The first thing to say is that although Thailand undoubtedly has a wild side, this won’t be like trekking deep into the Amazon basin. We have guests come to visit us of all ages, from school children to our own parents and in this respect we ensure that the trekking trails we use are as safe as possible. It doesn’t mean to say that there aren’t some hidden dangers- you may be lucky enough to see one of northern Thailand’s snake species! The biggest chance of injury however comes from wearing incorrect footwear. It is highly advised that you wear strong, but light all terrain shoes. There’s no need for full trekking boots, your feet will get too hot but choose something better than a flip flop. Some sandals may have the required grip, but should be securely fastened with multiple straps. Often trainers will suffice, always check they have some tread and can can grip rocky surfaces. There’s a good chance that any shoes you wear will get wet and muddy as even out of the rainy season there are rivers to cross, so make sure you choose footwear that you can dry easily.

Next on the preparation list is bug spray and sunscreen. Don’t skimp on these! The jungles near Chiang Mai are hot and humid. The 8Adventures trekking trail follows a river to a waterfall and amongst the shady areas of rocks and bamboo, mosquitoes lurk. It’s best to bring some spray with you to re-apply if you feel you are getting bitten. Sweat and sunlight soon wear off its effectiveness. Similarly for suncream, bring some in a small bag. We will stop to swim in a waterfall and you’ll need to put some on after. Spray sunscreen is best and is essential for everyone, the Thai sun can get blazing hot. According, it’s best to wear light clothes, the best choice being those fabrics made for trekking. Medium length shorts are recommended for most times of the year. As we will go swimming we also advise that customers change into bathing suits before coming out on tour. The alternative to this is hiding behind a bush trying to change into a swimming costume when your there!

What else to bring? It’s best to carry your drinking water in a metal water bottle. Not only is a good for the environment it will help the water stay cooler and even taste better! A one litre bottle is sufficient for a short trek. 8Adventures will always have water available for you as well. Another useful, but often overlooked item to bring trekking are binoculars. Northern Thailand has some of the greatest diversity of birdlife and you can get a much better view of the species with binos. Not only are they useful for identifying birds, you can also spot animals, plants and flowers that are hard to see with the naked eye. A final tip in preparation for any trek is to check the weather. In the rainy season (June- October) it’s always best to bring a tightly packed rain jacket. Along our trekking trails we pass through a hilltribe village, they have some handmade products and refreshments for sale so it’s a good idea to bring a small amount of Thai Baht.

For those of us interested in bird life there are many exciting species to be seen in Mae Taeng. It may not be on a par with the world renowned Doi Inthanon national park but due to its elevated altitude and relative isolation there are still some fantastic birds here including Sunbirds and Drongos, see this post for further information. https://8adventures.com/birdwatching-in-mae-taeng/

 

In addition to birds, you will see amazing butterflies, lizards, squirrels, frogs and possibly a snake. There is an array of creepy crawlies, although very few are considered dangerous. Fortunately giant centipedes and scorpions are most likely seen at night! There are also elephants in the Mae Taeng valley, although there are no longer any wild ones in this area. We do not support elephant riding or any kind of animal exploitation- it’s better to see wildlife in its natural environment. 
A trip to the jungle is not to be missed and 8Adventures offer some of the most unique trekking tours in Chiang Mai province. We recommend that our guests are in good physical shape, as even our short trek involves some scrambling over boulders and river crossings. 
After your trek, expect to be a little tired and hungry but ultimately happy that you’ve spent your day in the fresh air, getting back to nature.

For Trekking Chiang Mai – All participants should be in reasonable physical condition. If you have a heart, back or neck condition, broken bones or are pregnant, our activities are not for you. If you’re not sure or would like clarification please contact us.
