Thai TrekChiang Mai, Thailand

Escape the chaos of Bangkok and go bush in Chiang Mai’s hinterland. Admire Lanna-style temples as you cycle through rainforests and longan plantations, sampling fruit straight from the trees. Take your time pedalling to Wiang Takan, a ruined city that dates back to the twelfth century, and get your blood pumping on an uphill hike before arriving at your first of two homestays in Karen tribal lands.

At dawn, set out for Mae Wang National Park, where you’ll traverse well-trodden paths and overgrown trails, inhaling the fresh scent of ginger and orchids, and meeting locals along the way. On your final day, soak up nature while cruising down the Wang River on a bamboo raft.

 

 

 

Go with Green Trails for about AU$415 for two people.
