1-Day Jungle Trekking in Chiang Rai - For Trekkers!
Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Pai & Northern Thailand, Thailand
Hello, everyone, my name is Tao Wimae. I am a private local tour guide in Thailand, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai region.
I am from in the Northern part of Thailand in Chiang Rai city which is about 879 km away from Bangkok. I was born in the country side of Border Myanmar and Thailand. I am from the Akha hill tribe, and I used to live in the nature jungle or at the country side of Thailand. I studied nine subjects in high school including Biology, History, English, etc... The subjects were taught in English, and I started speaking English when I was young. I finished high school in 1993, and when I was 19, I left and taught English at a school near the border of Myanmar and China.
I used to trek and hike a lot in the jungle. I learn about the forest plants, which are used to heal, which are edible and which are poisonous. All together I have about 20 years in the jungle, and now I am a trekking guide. I enjoy sharing and teaching about the Akha hill tribe ways, and I love to show and share how do our people live in the forest with beautiful or wilds animals and lead a natural living life. Cooking in the jungles by Bamboo is the most of our original traditional style. Almost everything that comes from the forest is useful and good for us.
I will bring you to the best areas to trek in Chiang Rai. I offer 1 to 3 days jungles trekking as well as 1 to 2 days sightseeing around in the North of Thailand. Let's us explore the nature forests by trekking with me! I look forward to serve you as a private local tour guide in Thailand, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai region.
For this adventure option, begin your day from the hill or a village home stay. Start trekking through the village to a local school. Visit the kids and the community. Next visit the Lisu Hill tribe, the Chinese KMT village and a nearby tea plantation. Trek through the jungle where you will learn how to make bamboo cups & chopsticks. Pick up some jungle Tea Bamboo Omelettes. Have an au natural jungle lunch! Drink water from the jungle, boiled from bamboo tube, explore through the hills, jungle and valleys and trek down to a waterfall. Enjoy swimming, a dip in the pool or soak your feet in the pool. Continue the trek to various Hill Tribes and down to the natural Hot Spring. The whole hike will take about 5-6 hours. We will make our way back to city, at 4.30pm by taxi car.
